Bettembourg, 18 May 2015. – Today, the CFL multimodal group, via its member CFL logistics, was awarded the Lean & Green label by the Secretary of State, Mr. Camille GIRA. CFL logistics aims to cut its CO2 emissions by 20.42 % by 2020.

Lean and Green is an international stimulation programme, which encourages companies and organisations to engage in sustainability measures. In 2014, the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure started a collaboration with the Cluster for Logistics in order to implement this label for transport & logistics companies in Luxembourg.

CFL logistics, a Luxemburgish logistics operator and CFL multimodal subsidiary, was awarded the Lean & Green label today by Mr. Camille GIRA. CFL logistics targets to reduce its CO2 emissions by 20.42% within five years, by realizing a series of measures including:

  • truck routes and loading rates optimization,  
  • fuel consumption reduction, 
  • development of an energy-efficient and zero-emission fleet, as well as 
  • modal transfer from road to rail for specific destinations

By participating in this programme, the CFL multimodal group aims to strengthen its energy efficiency plan already covering its entire logistics activities. The group furthermore wishes to encourage the involvement of its employees in its sustainable development strategy as well as environment protection. CFL multimodal believes that a collective approach and joint actions will enhance the impact of each measure, thus multiplying its effects more than the simple sum of each respective target.
