DSV joins green freight scheme

DSV Road has joined Green Freight Europe a voluntary initiative that promotes cooperation between transport companies and their customers to reduce CO2 emissions.

The programme is focused on building and maintaining a platform to collect, compute and report CO2 emissions from road transport in Europe.

It includes companies like IKEA, DOW, Schneider Electric and Akzo Nobel as well as a number of transport suppliers.

René Falch Olesen, Chief executive officer of DSV Road said: “The transport sector has an impact on the global environment so it is our responsibility to lessen that impact whenever we can.

“But it is also good business since almost all our CO2 emissions are directly related to fuel consumption. If we can save fuel it will help both the environment and our bottom line so it is a central aspect of how we do business.”
