Cargus won the bronze medal for management in sustainability given by EcoVadis, one of the largest rating and certification agencies in the world. The distinction is all the more important as it is the first of its kind obtained by Cargus and, therefore, a recognition of the commitment in implementing the sustainability principles on medium and long term.
EcoVadis assessed our performance considering 4 main pillars: environment, fundamental human rights at work, ethics and sustainable procurement. With a total score of 55 out of 100 possible points, Cargus won the bronze medal, thus being in the first half of the top companies evaluated by EcoVadis.
“A business exists because of people and communities. And our mission, as the first and one of the most important courier companies in Romania, is to improve the life of the communities we belong to – through quality services, but also through a sustainable way of doing business. That’s why we build Cargus not only as a leader in innovation, but also as a company that cares about the balance and well-being of the team, and values the environment,” says Olivier van Houtte.
Cargus’ mission to protect the environment is strategically focused on three main pillars of responsibility: increasing the low-emission vehicles fleet (Euro 5 pollution-proof vehicles and testing alternative vehicles), increasing the number of shipments to Cargus SHIP & GO points (to reduce carbon emissions), launch sustainable packaging and develop “green” partnerships.
