Schenker Australia Pty Ltd and Schenker (NZ) Ltd have announced they are now ISO 14001:2004 certified, having established an Environmental Management System that will ensure sustainable operations across Australia and New Zealand in the long-term. The audit and certification was undertaken by Bureau Veritas Pty Ltd. “Having achieved the ISO 14001:2004 certification shows that we are on the right track as a company and that our Environmental Management System builds on and complements the other initiatives we have in place already such as reducing truck movements by shifting containers to rail freight and successfully introducing intermodal transport concepts,” said Ron Koehler, CEO of DB Schenker in Australia and New Zealand. The certification is part of the DB Group’s sustainability strategies and environmental protection programmes and initiatives and in particular DB Schenker/s commitment to Green Logistics. The DB Group will reduce its specific carbon output worldwide, i.e. its carbon emissions relative to its transportation volume, by 20 per cent between 2006 and 2020.
