CSR logistics also means combining economic success in the long term with the protection of the environment and social responsibility.
As a LSP, ECS recognizes the environmental impact of its business and the responsibility to find solutions. Therefore, continuous improving of the environmental sustainability is part of our daily operations and business decisions.
Several years ago, ECS started the EHS² program (Environmental, Health, Safety and Security). The program is based upon the ISO14001 standard, fully integrated in our ISO 9001 Quality Management System and contained two main focus areas related to the environment: the area of logistic services and the area of warehousing and offices.
A work in progress…
As ECS realized that short term goals are only the beginning to (environmental) sustainability, in 2014 the CSR project was launched in order to develop long term initiatives and goals (in dialogue with all stakeholders) and formalize these initiatives by participating in external programs such as GRI reporting and EcoVadis.
