Stef pledges to cut vehicle greenhouse gas emissions by 30%

Paris, France: Stef is aiming to reduce its vehicles’ greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030 as part of its new climate initiative, “Moving Green”.

Stef has decided to prioritise low-carbon energy sources – it will gradually replace the use of diesel with the following: French-produced B100 biofuel, natural biogas for vehicles (bioNGV) and electricity. The group also plans to optimise its consumption by applying artificial intelligence to its transport plans and to new forms of eco-driving, a practice that is already widespread within the company. Finally, it is actively involved in the latest developments in the use of hydrogen, the energy of the future, and in ongoing tests on electric-powered lorries.

Stanislas Lemor, chairman and chief executive, said: “Climate change represents one of the biggest challenges humanity has to face. As the European leader in temperature-controlled food transport and logistics, it is Stef’s responsibility to make an active contribution to reducing CO2 emissions.

“The challenge we face is immense: how can we continue to supply food products to people, as our group has done for the last 100 years in Europe, in a more sustainable way that protects the planet? Today, we are outlining an initial response in the form of our 2030 climate initiative.

“We are committed to leaving a lighter footprint on our planet. More than ever, we want to make Stef a driver of change in its field when it comes to fighting climate change.”

The commitment to reduce CO2 emissions is built around three goals. As well as its vehicle pledge, Stef wants to use 100% low-carbon energy for its buildings by 2025 and to incorporate its subcontractors into the group’s environmental commitments.
