Environment

Introduction

In order to reduce the negative impact on the environment, we are committed to making processes more efficient, developing technologies and finding environmentally friendly solutions. To increase energy efficiency, we guide the way our employees consume and use renewable energy.

About our solutions:

Waste sorting

We sort and recycle waste generated from our operations. Sorted waste was recycled:

  • 74% in 2014
  • 81% in 2015
  • 84% in 2016
  • 81%  in 2017
  • 72% in 2018
Renewable energy

In April 2014, we launched the solar panel park of Välja Road logistics centre with a capacity of 82 kW. The energy produced accounts for about 10% of the logistics centre’s annual needs.

Depending on the season (height of the sun, angle), the maximum productivity is reached between 11 AM and 14 PM, which at that time covers 99% of the energy needs of the logistics centre. By consuming the produced renewable energy, we prevent the release of about 80 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year.

Separate loading area

To prevent heat and cold losses, we have separated the high storage from the loading area. Both areas are individually heated and temperature adjustable.

Lighting

95% of the lighting works with motion sensors. The shelf gaps are divided into three zones. Fluorescents or LED lamps have been used as luminaires.

We use transparent sunroofs in the warehouse for better lighting. The use of daylight ensures less use of resources to generate electricity.

Transport

Through traffic planning, we reduce unnecessary journeys. Freight is transported to specific areas and at designated times.

Employee involvement

All new employees receive quality and environmental training, which introduces the company’s quality and environmental policy, why a green worldview is important to the company, how waste is sorted.

We regularly review processes and implement development measures. Management sets measurable quality and environmental objectives that are consistent with relevant policies and take into account the current and future needs of both the company and its customers, as well as the company’s processes and overall strategic goals.

Informing partners

We pass on the promotion of an environmentally conscious way of thinking to our employees, customers and partners. We will speak at seminars and we are waiting for those interested to get acquainted with the solutions of our warehouses.

Green operations are one of our core interests and an indispensable precondition for long-term business.

On January 29, 2015, Logistika Pluss was awarded the “ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY COMPANY OF THE YEAR 2014” in the environmental management category.
