SSI SCHAEFER joins the 50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders initiative as the first material handling company to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. #ThinkTomorrow
The 50 Sustainability & Climate Leaders initiative is the response from the international business community, which demonstrates the desire, the drive, and the ability to take effective action in the fight against climate change. To actively contribute to achieving the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG), SSI SCHAEFER effectively promotes sustainable as well as efficient material handling solutions and strengthens corporate logistics.
The material handling industry is the backbone of almost every sector and provides services that no modern society can do without, enabling sectors to operate both locally and in a global environment. Having a functioning, sustainable material handling and supply chain is one of the success factors for most companies. Resources are finite and need to be used wisely. Given its experience and portfolio of sustainable solutions and innovations, SSI SCHAEFER has been invited to participate in the initiative. The company tagline of "Think Tomorrow.” is certainly fitting.
Steffen Bersch, CEO of the SSI SCHAEFER Group, explains, "The initiative we have joined is based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. We at SSI SCHAEFER are committed to these goals. As a leading international supplier of warehouse and logistics systems, we have been dealing with sustainable solutions for a long time. We need an economically efficient as well as sustainable logistics organization to reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions and costs while promoting short supply chains and healthy working conditions."
