Transwest's sustainability policy consists of a number of measures that have a measurable impact on climate, among other things.
To this end, we have associated ourselves with the SBTi.
The Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) is a global initiative that enables companies to set ambitious emission reduction targets in line with the latest climate science. It aims to encourage companies around the world to halve their emissions by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
TransWest commits to reduce its scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 42% by 2030 from the 2020 base year, and to measure and reduce its scope 3 emissions.
By setting these goals, Transwest is in line with the scenario of keeping global temperature rise below 1.5°C. As a result, we are also part of the UNFCCC Race to Zero campaign.

Furthermore, we follow the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Especially SDG 13 (Climate Action), SDG 7 (Affordable and Sustainable Energy) and SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) are within the scope of our sustainability policy.
Some of the actions we take:
- Transportation optimization: we invested in track and
trace systems. This allows us to perfectly locate the truck
and trailers and at the same time monitor temperatures.
As a result, we can intervene faster in case of problems
and plan trips optimally.
- Efficient energy management system: all electrical
appliances on our site are controlled by a single energy
management system. This enables us to ensure continuous
improvement of our energy consumption.
- Intelligent charging infrastructure for refrigerated trailers:
our parking lot is equipped with 150 charging stations to
electrically power the refrigerated trailers. This l lowers our
CO2 emissions while reducing noise levels.
- Installation of LED lighting in our warehouses.
- Efforts towards a more circular economy:
- We use residual heat from cooling processes to heat the offices.
- tires reuse by remixing and re-profiling
- water recovery and maximum use of rainwater
- Strict separation and collection of all waste streams
