Sitrans Logistique is working to achieve sustainable development by undertaking to reduce its CO2 emissions.
Sitrans Logistique signed the CO2 Charter set up by the French national agency for the environment and energy-saving (Agence de l’Environnement et de la Maîtrise de l’Énergie – ADEME) on 26 October 2012.
The objectives the company has already achieved are significant and correspond to a real everyday commitment to energy-saving:
> Governor kicks in on vehicle engines at 85 km per hour
> 80% of vehicles in the fleet are fitted with an automatic gearbox
> 100% of the company’s drivers are trained in energy-efficient driving; they take part in three or four training sessions on a simulator every year, they are accompanied while they drive, and IT feedback from the fleet is analysed on a personal basis
> 100% of the vehicles in the fleet are fitted with on-board IT equipment
> 80% of the vehicles in the fleet meet the Euro 6 standard
> Development of a gas-powered vehicle
> 100% of the vehicles in the fleet are also fitted with a system for cutting the engine out automatically if it idles for 3 minutes
In February 2017, at the first edition of the ‘Objectif CO2’ trophies, Sitrans Logistique received an approval certified by the ADEME - the ‘Objectif CO2’ label, awarded to the most virtuous transport companies having obtained a high level of performance in terms of energy and the environment.
As a result, Sitrans Logistique is involved in two aspects of the ‘Objectif CO2’ Programme launched in May 2016 - its Charter and its Label. This appears to be the solution for eco-responsible transport, the aim being to reduce greenhouse-effect gases and improve the energy efficiency of road transport, which accounts for more than 84% of the world’s transport of goods.
