In Madrid on Tuesday, Ebro received the Lean&Green Award from the Spanish Manufacturers and Distributors Association (AECOC) for its commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of its logistics activities in Spain. Awards were presented during the VI Sustainable Logistics Workshop organised by AECOC.
The award was granted in acknowledgement of the action plan presented by our subsidiary Herba Ricemills, audited by an independent external body, which aims to reduce the GHG emissions of logistics activities by at least 20% within no more than 5 years.
This commitment is one of the pillars of our General Sustainability Plan HEADING FOR 2030, one of the main aims of which is to minimise the environmental impact of our business activities.
Lean&Green (https://www.aecoc.es/servicios/leangreen-espana/) is the largest European collaboration platform aiming to reduce emissions associated with the supply chain. It is an international initiative aiming to help companies in all sectors to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions produced by their logistics activities, with a view to reaching the goals defined at the Paris Climate Summit (COP21) to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
