The environment, an important factor of KNs business strategy. What do we focus on to reach our yearly targets? The tools we use to be more environmentally- friendly Measure Improve Implement Communicate Ensure
Environmental aspects Carbon footprint & the GFCC Targets for 2013
What are KNs main focuses when setting yearly targets? Electricity and Gas: Usage for: Lighting, heating, battery-charging, air conditioning, ventilation, computers, other office facilities (e.g printers, photocopiers, etc..) Transport: Fleet of vehicles with many environmental impacts: Depletion of scarce resources, Co2 emissions & other emissions leading to smog and acid rain. Water: Anything harmful that enters the surface water drains may pollute streams, rivers and kill wildlife. Noise: Noise can have a significant effect on local communities.
Disposal Only where all other alternatives have been exhausted Energy recovery Use of waste as an alternate source of fuel Recycling - Source segregation of materials - Separation of waste types required by law (Animal by products, Liquids, Hazardous Waste) - Mechanical or Biological separation of waste Reuse Return and refill schemes: Printer Cartridges, bottle/can deposit schemes, etc Prevention Damage reduction Stock control and rotation Culture Awareness Minimization WASTE MANAGEMENT HIERARCHY How does it work?
The consequences of environmental breach are not just financial. A firms reputation is some of the highest risks and could be essential for the survival of a business. Therefore it is crucial to understand the environmental aspects on our sites. What is Pollution? It is the release of chemical, physical, biological or radioactive contaminants to the natural environment that causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to our ecosystem.
Establish an appropriate environmental policy, Identify the environmental aspects in order to determine the environmental impacts of significance, Identify applicable legal and other requirements to which the organization subscribes. Identify appropriate environmental objectives and targets, Establish a structure and a programme(s) to implement the policy and achieve objectives and meet targets, Perform audits and take preventive and corrective actions to ensure both that the policy is complied with and that the environmental management system remains appropriate.
Contract Logistics targets for 2013 ! K+N UKs strategy is to deliver growth through innovation. By converting new and innovative ideas into win/win solutions for ourselves and our customers we create real value. 15% reduction / FTE and 15% reduction / m2 Premises C02 emissions 1% improvement each year Fuel I Increase recycling by 40% I Increase recycling by 40% Recycling At least 30 new ISO14001 certified sites globally & 100% successful renewals of current certifications ISO 14001
Kuehne + Nagels carbon management programme designed to : Calculate Calculate customers carbon footprint, Identify Identify carbon reduction potentials in their transport and logistics activities Offset Offset their remaining emissions. Carbon Intelligence
What ? What ? An inventory of all of the emission sources From where From where? An organisation, product, process or person. Its role? Its role? measuremonitor reduce To measure, monitor and reduce Co2 emissions. Site emissions include: Site emissions include: Office heating, cooling systems & Refrigeration Lighting, computers and electronic appliances. Additionally, in some countries Kuehne + Nagel operates fleets of trucks that necessarily need to be accounted for the companys overall footprint. Glossary: Fossil fuels gas, oil, coal Direct & Indirect emissions gas, electricity...
We aim to be the forwarder leader in environmental measures Global Transport Carbon Calculator (GTCC) Global Facility Carbon Calculator (GFCC) Global Strategic Carbon Calculator (GSCC) Our Carbon Intelligence toolkit is based on two main components : The Global Facility Carbon Calculator (GFCC): The Global Facility Carbon Calculator (GFCC): A site-level report enabling to prioritise actions to reduce energy, fuel and water consumption The Global Transport Carbon Calculator (GTCC): The Global Transport Carbon Calculator (GTCC): One of the most powerful tools in the industry for the measurement and reporting of CO2 emissions caused by sea, air and road transport activities. The GTCC allows Kuehne + Nagel to provide its clients with reports on their carbon footprint by transportation mode. Carbon Intelligence
Highlights priorities for action, by identifying and measuring the larger sources of emissions on site Enables comparison between similar sites through the use of the emex software. Provides energy usage needed for Carbon Reduction Commitment [will be a tax] and fuel usage for Logistics Carbon Reduction Scheme Tables and graphs give green notice-boards Baseline set up and target achievements
Scope 1: All direct emissions (company owned fleet) Scope 2: Indirect emissions (consumption of purchased electricity) Scope 3: Other indirect emissions (waste generated in operations) Global facility carbon calculator
Who are they? 2-way channel trialschange GFCC Kuehne + Nagel employees who volunteer to become Site Environment Champions. They act as a 2-way channel for advice and information, conduct trials, be an advocate for change, prepare and publish the GFCC monthly performance report. What do they do? Raise awareness on environmental issues. Provide guidance to staff and influence site activities to reduce CO2 emissions and costs arising from fuel, energy and water usage and the disposal of waste.
Duty of care Duty of care: A person is responsible for avoiding acts or omissions that could be likely to cause harm to the environment. Polluter pays principlePolluter pays principle : Those who pollute should bear the costs of damaging the environment. Producer responsibility Producer responsibility: Making sure businesses that manufacture and sell certain products are responsible for those products once they become waste.
Water Resources Act 1991 Regime set up to conserve, manage and control pollution of water resources and abstraction. Only put rain water down the surface water drain! A little guidance : Only put rain water down the surface water drain! Water Industry Act 1991 Set up private water authorities. Dont put anything into a fowl drain but sewage without the permission of the water authorities!

Classifies waste management according to their desirability. The 3Rs (Reduce, Use & Recycle) are meant to be a hierarchy, in order of importance.
CO2 reporting Scheme designed to reduce carbon emissions How does it reduce them? Charges public and private sector organizations that consume large amounts of electricity and gas.
Pollution prevention Guidelines Their objective: Prevent pollution entering watercourses and groundwater by means of guidance, rather than legislation. Hazardous Waste regulations Sets out a regime for the control and tracking of the movement of hazardous waste.
Cardboard re-processing - over 200,000 tonnes of cardboard reprocessed per annum Plastic re-processing - over 15,000 tonnes of plastic reprocessed per annum Over 800 million "units" handled through recycling units per annum Repairs and maintenance of RTP Hygiene - in house and independent bacterial swab testing Bio degradable cleaning agents Water recycling Recycling of steam energy Latest technology in low energy consumption
Kuehne + Nagel UK has been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard, a mark of excellence awarded to organisations in recognition of their measurement, management and reduction of carbon emissions.
WHAT HAS BEEN SET UP WITHIN CONTRACT LOGISTICS ? CONTRACT LOGISTICS, THE EXTENSION TO YOUR BUSINESS !! The extension?

On average every person in the UK throws away their own body weight in rubbish every three months. Over a third of all UK energy use, and 38% of its carbon emissions, are accounted for by transport - mostly road traffic. Housing in the UK accounts for 30% of total fuel use and energy- related CO2 emissions.
Controls are set incorrectly In some cases timers and thermostats are set to switch equipment or light on when it is not needed. Equipment is not switched off All equipment including lights, computers, heaters and catering equipment should only be switched on when needed. · Heated or cooled air is lost Unnecessarily leaving warehouse doors, office windows or cold stores open when they no longer need to be causes excess air to be lost unnecessarily. Equipment is damaged or faulty When equipment Energy efficient floodlighting and street lighting 50-75% reduction in energy use. LED lighting high efficacy Properly engineered LED has a comparatively long life – in the order of 50,000 hours thus reducing maintenance costs LEDs reach full light output instantly SON or SOX lamps
Various ways of saving energy in KN buildings
