Lidl Switzerland has once again been able to reduce CO2 emissions in logistics and has been awarded 2nd Star Lean & Green for this. Overall, Lidl Switzerland reduced CO2 emissions in transport and logistics by another 13% between 2017 and 2020.
Retailer Lidl Switzerland will switch to fossil-free branch delivery by 2030. Over 30 LNG trucks, 4 CNG trucks (100% Swiss biogas powered) and an electric truck are already in use for Lidl Switzerland. There are two LNG filling stations, which are gradually being converted to fossil-free LBG (liquefied biogas). Lidl Switzerland already operates more than 60 percent of its logistics kilometers that are diesel-free and rely on biofuels, synthetic as well as solar energy.
Ole Roger, Head of Logistics at Lidl Switzerland: “Our goals are ambitious: fossil-free by 2030. But we are well on our way to achieving this goal. We are already driving more than half our logistics kilometers using alternative driving concepts. Now we are in the right place proud to have 2nd Star Award from Lean & Green. This shows us that we are on the right track with our strong commitment.”
Next goal: the third star
Lidl Switzerland wants to improve even more in this area and has now set itself the goal of achieving the third star from Lean & Green. This requires an additional 5 percent CO2 reduction within two years.
