ROTTERDAM/LONDON: February 08, 2016. Unilever says it has reached a new level of environmental sustainability by eliminating the sending of non-hazardous waste to landfill from over 600 sites in 70 countries including factories, warehouses, distribution centres and offices.

The company said the new level had been achieved by reducing, reusing, recovering or recycling - proving that by adopting a circular model, its waste becomes someone else’s resource.

Pier Luigi Sigismondi, Unilever’s Chief Supply Chain officer noted: “The global challenge of a growing population relying on limited resources is very real. Our zero waste to landfill goal underpins Unilever’s sustainable growth ambitions, as well as our commitment to become resource resilient and tackle climate change. By building a network of partners, we can eliminate waste on an unprecedented scale across the globe,” he added.

Unilever LNG truckThe announcement follows Unilever’s introduction of trucks powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) in a part EU-funded project called Connect2LNG that is establishing a network of fueling stations across Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Spain.

To date five LNG stations have been built in France and Germany where the long-distance truck routes linking the Atlantic, North Sea, Mediterranean and Rhine Alpine regions intersect.

“With Connect2LNG, we’re working with partners from across the value chain, including logistics companies, infrastructure companies and manufacturers,” said Mark Rickhoff, Logistics Transformation & Innovation (LTI) manager at Unilever. “We’re taking a step towards the overall reshaping the road freight industry in Europe, working towards a sustainable transportation future.”

Connect2LNG forms part of the logistics team’s contribution to Unilever’s Sustainable Living Plan of a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2020. LTI director Paul de Jong explained: “LNG offers a carbon dioxide reduction of 11.5 percent and a 35 percent reduction of the smog-causing chemicals, nitrogen oxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions, compared to diesel. Where it gets really interesting is the way LNG cuts fine particulates – the tiny particles linked to heart and respiratory illness – by 95 percent, and noise levels by up to 50 percent.”

Unilever says LNG is a more realistic and cleaner fuel for its truck fleets as it offers a 70 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions compared to diesel.
