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.

New energy efficiency obligation scheme for energy suppliers and logistics companies

In the context of the transposition of the EU directive on energy efficiency into Luxembourgish law via the Projet de Règlement grand-ducal includes since 2018, it is foreseen to have the possibility to account certain measures from the action plans of LAG as energy efficiency measures together with obligated parties under the energy efficiency obligation scheme which has been established in Luxembourg in 2015. Obligated parties are electricity and natural gas suppliers, which have a legal obligation to achieve energy efficiency savings each year to the end of 2020. The savings can be achieved by the obligated parties mainly in the building and industrial sector, but can accounted in the future partially in the transport sector through the program “Lean and Green”.

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.


LEAN and GREEN is an international stimulation programme by non-governemental organisation Connekt for companies and organizations aiming to encourage businesses and public bodies to move to a higher level of sustainability, by taking measures that yield cost savings and reduce the impact on the environment at the same time. The Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure collaborated with the Cluster for Logistics in order to implement the Label for transport & logistics companies in Luxembourg.
