DB Schenker Logistics awarded for engagement in environmental transport

DB Schenker Logistics has been awarded winner of the customer prize for outstanding environmental engagement on the occasion of the 4th Lufthansa Climate Care Day in Frankfurt/Main.

The award was granted especially for the introduction of “Carbon Reduction Agreements” into the business relation between a logistics service provider and carriers thereby linking business volume growth to a carbon reduction commitment in a medium-term time frame (2014-2020). The agreements also reflect the successive integration of sustainability KPIs into the business relation with transport providers.

“This award reflects and supports our strategy to become eco pioneer in the transport industry”, states Dr. Karl-Friedrich Rausch, Board Member for Transportation and Logistics of the DB Mobility Logistics AG and CEO of Schenker AG. “And, in addition, it confirms our approach to hereby include our third party service providers as well, thereby contributing mutually to a long-term and carbon neutral business development.”
