Dudelange, July 13th, 2018 – Today, CFL logistics, subsidiary of the CFL multimodal group, was awarded the Label Lean & Green STAR, in presence of Minister François Bausch. CFL logistics achieved its objective to cut its CO2 emissions by 20 % over the past five years.

Lean and Green is an international stimulation programme, which encourages companies and organisations to engage in sustainability measures. This programme has been launched in 2014 by the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Infrastructure in collaboration with the Cluster for Logistics.

CFL logistics aimed at reducing its CO2 emissions by 20 % within five years, by realizing measures including:
• modal transfer from road to rail,
• truck routes and loading rates optimization,
• fuel consumption reduction,
• energy efficiency in warehousing infrastructure

The implementation of these measures led CFL logistics to reduce its CO2 emissions by 22 %. The label Lean & Green STAR rewards this great achievement.

Barbara CHEVALIER, Director of Strategy and Business Development for the CFL multimodal Group, draws a positive balance: "The Lean & Green programme enables the CFL multimodal group to position itself as a committed player in sustainable logistics in Luxembourg and Europe. In recent years, the label has been a catalyst for achieving our CO2 reduction goals. It also enabled us to engage our employees in environmental values and sustainable development."
