Germany pic2Imperial Tobacco’s German business has won recognition for its efforts to reduce the impact of supply chain movements on the environment. Imperial reported yesterday that its subsidiary, Reemtsma, was presented with an award at an event in Nuremberg for taking action to reduce CO2 emissions by 20 percent before 2017.

The initiative includes using more fuel-efficient vehicles and providing better driver education. “This award demonstrates we have acted to deliver major reductions in emissions in logistics,” said Stephen Rettich, distribution manager Germany.

Reemtsma was a founding member of the Lean and Green network in Germany, which includes companies such as Lidl, Mars, Henkel and Unilever.

The initiative supports greater awareness amongst industry partners of environmental issues and the sharing of best practice. Lean and Green started in the Netherlands and has spread to Belgium and Italy, as well as Germany.

Its logo, pictured, is an increasingly common sight on Europe’s roads.
