Trailer manufacturer, Schmitz Cargobull, has published its second sustainability report, focusing on how the company has developed when it comes to the environment.

“The topic of sustainability is one of the great challenges of our time,” said Chief Operations Officer, Dr Günter Schweitzer. “Our industry is still at the very beginning when it comes to reducing environmental impact along the entire value chain and thinking of sustainability holistically.”

The original sustainability strategy, drawn up in 2022, focuses on three fields of action – products and services, environment and people – and includes all Schmitz Cargobull locations.

In addition, since 2023, 100 per cent certified green electricity has been used at all German production sites and CO2e emissions have been reduced by 29 per cent overall and 24.5 per cent per trailer.
