IMCD: Lean & Green Star Award
In 2011 IMCD Group, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, was the first distributor to be awarded the Lean & Green Award. One year later IMCD is amongst a select group of 16 companies, out of an eligible 250, that successfully reached the set goals in order to be awarded the Lean & Green Star award. The Lean & Green award is given to companies that commit themselves to significantly reducing their CO2 emissions, submitting a satisfactory action plan that is subsequently assessed and approved. Additionally, the Lean & Green Star award is given to companies that could demonstrate their fulfilment of the above mentioned targets. After review of IMCD’s carbon footprint for 2010, 2011 and 2012, the Group proved to have reached the objectives.
The Star Award is a part of the innovation programme Sustainable Logistics by Connekt, an independent network of companies and authorities, collaborating to achieve a sustainable improvement in mobility. The Sustainable Logistics programme was initiated by the Dutch Ministry of Transport and it supports logistics companies in their drive to significantly reduce CO2 emissions while increasing profitability.
