Sustainability

Understanding efficiencies, reducing carbon footprints

For us, sustainability is an overall approach to business—a way to add value, improve efficiencies and invest in the long-term success of our customers, carriers and employees.

We understand the importance of green logistics and use our business model to reduce waste and convert unproductive capacity into productive solutions. Our initiatives include:

  • Reducing empty kilometers—and fuel consumption—by selecting efficient modes of transport and optimising every load
  • Developing transportation and network optimisation strategies for our customers, who improve efficiency savings through consolidation. This results in fewer shipments, fewer transport kilometers and lower greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reducing paper usage and costs to support sustainability

C.H. Robinson is a proud sponsor and partner of the Green Freight Europe initiative. This initiative strives to become the leading independent voluntary programme for improving the environmental performance of freight transport across Europe. As a steering member of this pan-European carbon reducing programme, we will actively contribute to our objective of making freight transport more sustainable.
