OUR RESPONSIBILITY
CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility – should be a sign of FoodTankers. It means that we always will take responsibility for how the business impacts the society, both economically, socially and environmentally. FoodTankers strives to be a sustainable company.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
FoodTankers have a comprehensive view on our way of work. We want to contribute to the safe transports of people’s food and with a minimum of environmental impact. We only have one world to live in – we must care about the environment.
FoodTankers largest impact on the environment derives from our trucks. The fuel is a large cost item and therefore it will benefit both the climate and the company when we strives to minimize fuel consumption. We also strives to minimize the impact from our tanker-cleaning stations. We will also separate at source our waste and what is left over should be taken care of in an environmental friendly way.
HOW WE WORK ON THE ENVIRONMENT
FoodTankers will comply with legislations regarding the environment. Above that we should strive to minimize our emissions to air, ground and water and minimize the environmental impact when purchasing products and services. All employees and subcontractors should be aware of this environmental policy. Our work on the environment should be carried out in dialogue and with transparency and with increased performance every year.
We work with an Environmental Stair which means that as the first step we choose the way of transport. If possible we use intermodal transports like tank containers which can be carried both by truck, boat and train. The other steps are Traffic balance, Planning the right way, Driving in the right way, Fuel-efficiency and Use the right fuel. The Environmental Stair is explained more detailed in FoodTankers Sustainability Report.
All our drivers will be trained in product safety, customer treatment and driving behavior. Environmental knowledge and this policy should be a part of the training.
FoodTankers have a certified Environment Management System and uses only certified tanker-cleaning stations if possible.
FoodTankers is at the forefront with modern trucks with low-emissions. The development of how clean the vehicle fleet is should be reported in the Sustainability Report.
