WASTE DISPOSAL. The challenge is the restructuring of waste cycle. Waste can be re-used and can be an added value, through four R’s: Recovery, Reduction of energy, Recycle, Re-Usage.
INVERSE MANUFACTURING. The challenge is re-using of products that have ended their life cycle. This can create a new value for the product, and it will greatly reduce the impact of materials that have ended their cycle.
CUT HARMFUL EMISSIONS . The challenge is to respect the environment by reducing emissions.
Transport and Distribution
IMPROVING THE LOADING FACTOR IN TRANSPORTS. The challenge is to saturate your vehicles loading capacity with transported goods. 100% for both outbound and inbound trips improving what is currently performed in the average of global transport (30%-50% only).
EFFICIENCY AND TCO OF VEHICLES The challenge here is to reduce the Total Cost of Ownership, investing on the transportation mix to reduce management costs and reduce environmental impact.
INTERMODAL TRANSPORT. The challenge is to balance service and emissions. Developing inter-modal solutions, setting goals and monitoring results.
People and processes
TRAINING. The challenge is to be aware of the impact of the company’s sustainable activities. Inform and train on values, sustainable best practices, CSR and sustainability in general. Stakeholders, employees and managers are all addressees.
