Family-run bulk logistics solutions company HOYER Group (HOYER) has defined new sustainability targets to accelerate its aim to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2025.

The company intends to align its global decision making with its pillars of sustainability, including social responsibility, environmental protection, and sustainable economic management. 

Commenting on the decision, Björn Schniederkötter, CEO, HOYER Group, said, “We will play a leading, forward-looking role in overcoming the current ecological challenges.” 

“Our solid financial situation enables us to continue making long-term strategic decisions and investments that support our sustainable vision and the values and business strategies of the HOYER Group.” 

Having equipped more than 98% of its truck fleet with engines in the Euro 5 and Euro 6 emissions classes, the company intends to lower its emissions further by testing and developing new alternative drive systems. 

Following its success in reducing CO2 emissions by 29% between 2010 and the end of 2020, over-fulfilling its promise by 4%, the company aims to reduce emissions by an additional 10% by 2025. 

“We want to be pioneers in our sector,” declared Mark Binns, Group Operating Board Member, SHEQ. 

“The declared aim is the maximum possible reduction of CO2.” 

HOYER’s sustainability efforts were recognised last year after it was awarded a bronze medal for sustainability by international rating platform EcoVadis.
