First climate neutral forwarder
The sustainable transition is in full swing. At Rotra, however, we believe that the fight against climate change cannot move fast enough. We are impatient and want to be able to leave a healthy planet to the next generation(s). In cooperation with our sustainability partner Climate Neutral Group, Rotra has chosen to work 100% climate neutral and as a result Rotra is the 1st climate neutral forwarder in the Benelux. How we do that? By measuring, reducing and offsetting.
Within our domain, we analyze our sustainability performance and determine our footprint. Through these measurements we are able to see what is already going well and what can be improved. Thereafter we ensure that all reduction initiatives arising from the footprint analysis are measurable, so that we can see together what we are working towards: 49% reduction in 2030 and zero emission in 2050. However, in our transition to zero emission, CO2 is still released into the atmosphere. We cannot fix this overnight. That is why we are taking action now and immediately fully compensate our residual emissions. In collaboration with Climate Neutral Group, we offset all emissions at all our locations by investing in certified sustainability projects such as planting new trees, wind energy projects and projects to protect rainforests. Our reduction and offsetting plans are assessed by an official (independent) auditor.
