Dear BPW Partners, Employees and Friends,
in the world of transport, nothing remains as it was: digitalisation, lack of drivers, climate regulations and the corona pandemic pose new challenges to all of us. The courage to change and the willigness to make a difference, is therefore more important than ever before. In doing so, we are guided by the values of the Honourable Businessman in order to ensure the long-term success of BPW and to operate in harmony with our environment at the same time. We have a long tradition of living responsibility, which we express through our ongoing membership of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest and most important initiative for sustainable and responsible corporate governance.
In our current Sustainability Report, which we publish exclusively online since 2019, we show you how we live this corporate responsibility, how we keep it alive and how we continuously develop it. The framework for this is provided by the three main pillars of our sustainability strategy: Employees & Society, Product Responsibility and Environment & Energy. All our actions, measures and activities follow these fields of action.
To protect the climate, for example, we have been using 100 percent green electricity, some of which we produce ourselves, for several years. In 2020, we also switched completely to green gas. With lightweight components and intelligent trailer chassis, we are helping to reduce diesel consumption, tyre and material wear in road freight transport. But our commitment does not end at the factory gates. In addition to the health of our own employees, the health and appreciation of the truck drivers who keep our industry running is also a major concern for us. For this reason, we not only engage as a DocStop location to ensure the medical care of professional truck drivers on the road, but also support the initiatives #LogistikHilft (LogisticsHelp) and the PROFI e.V. (Pro Trucker Image) association.
We cordially invite you to read about our ideas, initiatives and progress for a better world in our current sustainability report.
Your personally liable managing partners
