Kaneka Belgium awarded first ‘Lean & Green Star’
On April 6, 2022, Kaneka Belgium was awarded the first Lean & Green Star for its logistics operations. Kaneka earned the precious Star for realizing a 20% logistics CO2 reduction in the past 5-year period.
Kaneka implemented many projects and initiatives, including modal transport shift from road to water and rail, cutting down on shuttle transport by maximizing onsite warehousing space, and entering into strategic partnerships with transport companies and raw material suppliers to optimize transport efficiency. These initiatives were aimed at increasing supply chain efficiency and reducing transport emissions.
Kaneka will continue its efforts and is determined to surpass the 20% reduction they have already achieved. With sustainability high on the agenda, the Lean & Green program fits perfectly into the company's strategy.
Congratulations to the entire Supply Chain Team.
