Lean & Green Information Meeting 2018

The Cluster for Logistics invites to an Information meeting to the next LEAN & GREEN Program at the Chamber of Commerce.

The information workshop on October 4th 2018 takes place from 10:00 to 12:00 at the Chamber of Commerce.

If your company wants to participate to the information meeting please register using the form below.

A Luxembourg-based company which can demonstrate through an action plan that it will be able to reduce its CO2 emissions by 20% in five years’ time becomes eligible for the LEAN and GREEN Award.

Members must develop an Action Plan with improvement strategies, for example, including improving driver performance, utilization rates increasing, trips coordination, advanced dispatching / communication systems, adoption of clean fuels, modal shift, and Critical Performance Indicators (CPIs). An independent institute reviews whether the Action Plans are realistic to meet targets, approves the plans, and monitors progress against CPIs.

The programme is aimed at reducing the CO2 emissions of logistics activities of every company with logistics activities. This includes industrial companies and the retail sector next to shippers, carriers and logistics service providers.

This program supports future orientated businesses in transport and logistics to combine ecological behaviour and economic use of energy in a very competitive business environment. The Label plays an increasingly important role in Europe helping to meet COP 21 Paris goals of reduced CO2 emissions through 2030.

Three stars in Luxembourg

After the implementation of the Plan, companies receive the LEAN & GREEN STAR. The LEAN & GREEN Luxembourg community celebrated the first LEAN & GREEN STAR Awards on July 13th 2018. The companies Arthur Welter, CFL multimodal and LuxairCARGO received the LEAN & GREEN STAR Award for achieving an ambitious reduction of at least 20% in CO2 emissions since 2012. Minister François Bausch handed over the awards during the ceremony at the Chamber of Commerce.
