Sustainability indicators

A well-informed emission reduction strategy is key to us and our customers, and that’s why quantifying the environmental impact of logistics has been a major concern for all. Today, there is indeed a great need for sustainable indicators that monitor and measure the overall progress of GREEN LOGISTICS toward sustainable development. At KALEIDO, Ideas & Logistics, we have reviewed the major international sustainability indicators (carbon footprint, water footprint, acidification, eutrophication, cumulative energy demand, etc.), and we believe they do not cover enough features to be considered as measures of sustainability.

Accordingly, we have opened a line of research inside GREEN LOGISTICS that encompass the identification of a logistic sustainability indicator. We have started measuring the carbon footprint of our projects and we are now designing a sustainability indicator that weights the economic costs against the environmental impact of our operations.

KARBON TRACK is a web based application designed to calculate the Carbon Footprint of any logistic project and report it, according to the GHG Protocol methodology standard.

Green Logistics

  • Kaleido -

Too often in the past, logistics has been viewed as a cost-driven service. Besides, even if the idea of energy efficient, clean logistics has been around for long, it is just now that this «green» word has become the center of attention. Probably because today trendy topics are: climate change, rising energy costs, declining fuel reserves and alarms about the depletion of aquifers. The list goes on, but whatever reasons may be, GREEN LOGISTICS is a concept whose time has come. GREEN LOGISTICS is all a matter of focus on a\reducing energy use and b\improving the supply chain management system. And, as it is driven by efficiency, there is no compromise with financial results or with social responsibility. For us, GREEN LOGISTICS is a responsibility in regards of the society and an opportunity to develop the LEAN philosophy.

At KALEIDO, Ideas & Logistics, we have put together a team of specialists in GREEN LOGISTICS that work in close collaboration with our LEAN experts, primarily to invest in a sustainable business model through efficiency but furthermore to make the logistics of our customers green.

To do so, we have used various technological capabilities that help us achieve more efficient operations thus reducing GEI emissions.
Our major initiatives have been so far: the acquisition of electric machinery for our logistic centers, replacing conventional with LED lighting and installing solar thermal panels and the implementation of GREEN LOGISTICS model solutions. To monitor the results we have followed the requisites established by the GHG protocol: we have undertaken a climate change plan along with the verification of the carbon footprint (by an organization accredited by the ENAC). These are just a few examples of a challenging new logistics that lie ahead of us.
