Transmec commits to sustainability

Transport and logistics company, Transmec Group, is investing in innovative technologies, implementing strategies to reduce emissions and promoting an eco-sustainability-oriented corporate culture.

The company plans to install a solar PV system at its headquarter in Campogalliano, Italy.

Harnessing an inexhaustible source like the sun, according to Transmec, will allow for the autonomous generation of clean and renewable energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“This sustainable energy will be used not only to meet the energy needs of the offices but also the warehouses, significantly decreasing the overall environmental impact of the entire company’s operations,” the company said in a statement.

“The project contemplates the installation of three photovoltaic systems – one dedicated to each warehouse – which will take approximately six months to complete.

“Each system will be equipped with a total of 1,076 photovoltaic modules, generating an annual energy yield of 617.37 MWh. This clean energy production will contribute to a reduction of CO2 emissions, resulting in a decrease of 4,146 tonnes of carbon dioxide over the next 20 years.”

Awareness of the environmental impact, though, is guiding the business’ decisions as it pushes towards the adoption of practices and solutions that reduce pollution and contribute to the creation of a more sustainable future.

The company said it has always demonstrated great sensitivity to sustainable development, continually implementing a range of environmental protection policies.

“In fact, each vehicle in our fleet is regularly replaced to ensure compliance with stringent community environmental regulations and European safety standards,” said Transmec.

“The Euro VI fleet and the use of eco-friendly semi-trailers have helped reduce consumption and emissions through the adoption of the best-available technologies.”

The company has also invested in intermodal transportation including group-owned terminals, trains, and trailers.

“By leveraging rail transport, a saving of 0.83 kg of CO2/km has been measured compared to road transport,” said Transmec.

“Another key element is compliance with legislative regulations and the provision of information and/or training for all personnel involved, both internal and external.

“This ensures a high level of compliance and environmental awareness. Finally, there has been an essential investment in driver training to promote safe and environmentally friendly driving. Through specific programs, it has been possible to reduce CO2 emissions and promote a culture of responsible driving.

“Transmec has demonstrated a full commitment to actively contribute to change with definitive actions, and this latest initiative represents another step forward towards increasingly conscious and proactive management aimed at a more responsible, sustainable and environmentally-respectful future.
