Reporting 2021

Our Sustainability Approach

For us, acting sustainably means striking a balance between economic performance, social commitment and responsibility for the environment. Our goal is to include all three perspectives in our decisions and to anchor the resulting integrated approach deeply in the company and all processes – every day, at all levels. Only in this way can we gain an overarching understanding of the correlations, be well equipped to meet challenges and take advantage of opportunities not only for us as a company, but also in terms of our role in shaping the sustainable logistics of tomorrow.

Our Sustainability Approach

In a nutshell: We want to act responsibly in every respect. This aspiration forms the backbone of all our activities. We have assigned 11 concrete fields of action to the three supporting pillars ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL and ECONOMIC, which are of great importance to BLG LOGISTICS as a company and also to our stakeholders. Here we set ourselves goals, strive for change and want to do our part to contribute to progress.

In addition, we are guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. These aim to shape the world’s development in a sustainable way and to offer tomorrow’s generations a future. We want to play our part in this area, too, and focus on nine selected goals that are particularly closely linked to our business.
