Kane Logistics www.kanelogistics.com
Kenco created a 3-year roadmap for transitioning to low-emissions solutions such as highly automated, partially “dark” or “lights off” warehouses. Virtually independent of human labor, these facilities reduce requirements for energy consumption from utilities such as lighting, air conditioning, water usage, and vehicle exhaust.
Kane Logistics works to reduce carbon emissions, pollution, and congestion with smarter trucks and delivery methods. The third- party logistics provider has been a SmartWay member since 2006 and utilizes modern, diesel-powered trucks and compressed natural gas equipment. GREEN INITIATIVES • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions • Use alternative fuels or energy sources • Reuse/recycling program • Reduce energy usage • Sustainable packaging • Sustainably source materials • Energy-efficient lighting
Despite operating in Alaska’s extreme conditions, Lynden’s fleets consistently score among the most efficient in the nation in terms of CO2 per ton mile as measured by the SmartWay Transport Partnership. Lynden designs its procedures and equipment to prevent accidental spills and manage stormwater pollution. The company’s trucks and planes are also designed with aerodynamic features to reduce drag, and more than 80% of its fleet is less than five years old. Lynden’s bulk tanker company consistently scores in the top 1% of tanker carriers in the nation for low carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and particulate matter emissions per ton mile. Lynden locations have been redesigned for energy efficiency, including replacing propane forklifts with electric models. GREEN INITIATIVES • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions • Use alternative fuels or energy sources • Reuse/recycling program • Reduce energy usage • Sustainable packaging • Sustainably source materials • Energy-efficient lighting, NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS Lynden is the first Alaska-based transportation company to be recognized by SmartWay (2008) and the first trucking company to earn the Green Star Award for Alaskan businesses.
Lufthansa Cargo www.lufthansa-cargo.com/green
In the past 25 years, Lufthansa Cargo increased fuel efficiency by 52% with fleet rollovers from the DC8 to the B777. With LH Group, the corporate goal is to halve the CO2 footprint by 2030 (basis 2019). Lufthansa demonstrates sustainability by innovation in aircraft technology (all B777 will have sharkskin by 2022), fuel efficiency (more realistic contingency fuel planning), in-flight operation (efficient flight profile concept), and handling (since 2020 only standard lightweight containers are in use). Lufthansa Cargo has its own environmental strategy and a worldwide ISO 14001-certified environmental management system, taking into account upstream and downstream processes, including sustainable procurement. GREEN INITIATIVES • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions • Use alternative fuels or energy sources • Reuse/recycling program • Use wastewater • Reduce energy usage • Sustainable packaging • Sustainably source materials • Energy-efficient lighting NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS Lufthansa Cargo customers can now determine the CO2 emissions of their shipment’s transport during
NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS Since 2012, Kane has recycled
65.7 tons of paper, 85,239 tons of plastic/stretch wrap, 738,060 tons of cardboard, 101.2 tons of cans/ bottles, 14.3 tons of steel, 191.8 tons of wood, and 87.7 tons of additional commingled materials.
