What does Lean and Green do?
Lean and Green is a programme aimed at encouraging businesses and government bodies to move to a higher level of sustainability by taking measures that not only yield cost savings, but at the same time reduce the burden on the environment. Lean and Green makes a distinction between the mobility of goods and mobility of people. If an organisation can demonstrate through a plan of action that it will be able to reduce its CO2 emissions by 20% in five years’ time, it becomes eligible for the Lean and Green Award. If the objective in the plan of action is actually achieved, the organisation is awarded its first Lean and Green Star.
With the Lean and Green Award, organisations can show that they are actively engaged in making their logistics and mobility process more sustainable. That is something to be proud of. Winning the Award makes your organisation part of the Lean and Green Community, which now consists of more than 250 Lean and Green Award winners.
The Lean and Green Stars help the programme to ensure that the process of increasing the degree of sustainability in organisations continues to move forward. Organisations that actually achieve their objective to reduce CO2 by 20% receive the Lean and Green Star as a symbol for fulfilling their Lean and Green aim. The next stars are being developed in cooperation with the participating organisations.
