Welcome Message

Dear Reader,

 


At Kuehne + Nagel, value is in the centre of all our actions. Every day, our more than 75,000 employees create value for our customers and business partners. And our employees themselves are valued by colleagues, leaders and management. By operating safely, responsibly and respectfully in all endeavours, our organisation creates value for the environment we work in. Thus, we build the foundation to be a sustainable company. 

 

Yet our understanding of sustainability goes far beyond: As a worldwide operating logistics provider, it is our conviction that avoiding inefficient and unnecessary transportation is best suited to safeguard our global resources. By using pioneering technology and driving digital transformation we meet this logistics challenge with smart intelligence: Kuehne + Nagel uses its expertise, big data and predictive analytics know-how to increase efficiency in logistics, and in partnership with our customers, to optimise supply chains around the globe. We further create solutions that support our customers in achieving their own sustainability goals: As the first global logistics provider we disclose CO2 emissions on all seafreight invoices and thus support our customers in their decision making with respect to carbon emission. Together with Hapag-Lloyd, we have agreed on significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions in our common container transport activities.

 

But our commitment to sustainability also extends to our own operations. We have made sustainability an integral part of our daily business behaviour. We constantly monitor, evaluate and manage the economic, social and ecological impact of our activities. While all markets are undergoing a substantial change, Kuehne + Nagel is committed to Leading the Transformation. This ambition applies for our business activities, but is also well reflected in our approach to sustainability. By acting sustainably we create strong value for our customers, colleagues and all stakeholders. With this report, we invite you to join our journey towards a more sustainable future.
