A 20% cut in CO2 emissions over three years is something to boast about: HOYER, the Hamburg-based logistics specialist accomplished this in the years 2009 to 2012.

Greater concentration on intermodal transport business made a major positive effect. The company is aiming at a further 25% reduction in the ratio of CO2 per tonne-kilometer by 2020.

With the publication of the HOYER Sustainability Report, the company is for the first time publishing key figures of its own on sustainability and economic efficiency, making a clear commitment to long-term goals in terms of reducing emissions. The figures are based on the internationally recognised ECTA Responsible Care Method (McKinnon study), which make transparent changes over time in the widest variety of business sectors. HOYER is hence able to demonstrate that even chemicals and hazardous goods transport can be operated in an efficient and ecological manner.

HOYER is also participating in the chemicals industry Responsible Care Program in the fields of transport, cleaning and warehouse as well as being an active member of the Green Freight Europe Initiative transport logistics platform. Consequently, economic, ecological and social aspects of sustainability are equally taken into account. After all, acting responsibly with respect to environment, safety, health and security is of central importance for a family managed company such as HOYER to ensure long-lasting success – and a safe future.
