Müller puts a high value on corporate social responsibility (CSR). To do so, we support charities, but we also invest in sustainability. We play an active role in preserving the environment, but also the economy. That’s earned us the Lean & Green Star Award.
We pay great attention to managing environmental aspects. Hence, we invest proactively in environmentally-friendly delivery vehicles with EURO5 and EURO6 engines. We also use long heavy vehicles, because they have lower CO2 emissions due to their greater volume. Various innovations of our own also contribute to reducing our CO2 emissions.
Lean & Green Star
The Lean & Green Star Award is a symbol recognising the achievement of a reduction of at least 20% in CO2 emissions in five years. By achieving this award we have demonstrated our commitment to a more sustainable logistics process. We actually succeeded in in reducing CO2 emissions by 36% over a 3-year period!
Green electric trailer
Müller uses green trailers that are equipped with an electric motor instead of a diesel engine. With this green trailer we save around 20 liters of diesel per day and there is no emission of CO2 and particulate matter – therefore zero emission! The energy for this engine is supplied by reclaimed braking energy. The braking energy is collected in a battery that supplies the cooling motor with sufficient energy.
A large solar park has been invested in the new cross dock center and the existing cold store in Lekkerkerk, which means that more than 1 million kWh (kilowatt-hour) of electricity can be generated each year. A solar park will also be built on the 4,000 m2 new building of Müller ETTC in Holten. This will be ready in 2020.
Müller is investigating the possibilities under and together with its clients to compensate all CO2 per 1-1-2020. We take 100% responsibility for our own emissions and make a contribution to combating climate change with CO2 compensation.
