Hamburg-headquartered logistics specialist HOYER has presented key figures reporting the sustainability of its operations, and has again recorded a reduction in its fleet’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

In its 2014 Sustainability Report, the company underlines its responsibility to employees and the environment and publicly defines its objectives in those areas.

The report shows that the company once again succeeded in reducing CO2 emissions per tonne-kilometre – now to its latest and lowest level of 21.11g.

Within the last five years, pollutant output has therefore been cut by 25%. Further still, 95% of HOYER trucks are now powered by low-emission engines in the Euro V and Euro VI classes, the report notes.

Intensive training in terms of energy-saving driving styles is also paying dividends, HOYER says. As a result of the efficient integration of railways and shipping, intermodal transport now accounts for 80% of transport; this percentage continues to increase year-on-year, thereby making a substantial contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
