Our environmental policy is based on sustainability

A green heart – Koch International may be blue on the outside but is green on the inside. We have made sustainable corporate development a mission and will consider this aspect in all our actions.

Our sustainability is based on various pillars. We pursue a number of environmental objectives but are particularly committed to socially and economically responsible action. In the forwarding and logistics industry in particular, the goal must be to anchor sustainable action in the minds of stakeholders. The environment as well as social and economic sustainability must be taken into account with every development. We must create a worthwhile future for future generations and champion sustainable development.

The topic of sustainability has been part of Koch International for many years. We need to start working together to conserve resources, have an ecological mindset and support social diversity in the company. To us, sustainability has become much more than a secondary consideration, it is one of the key points that we are currently pursuing and developing. We will establish sustainable innovations and test new technologies that support sustainability. We will also work closely together with our customers to find new ways and develop new ideas.

And we will do so on the basis of the Sustainable Development Goals. The following selection of goals provides an overview of our commitment to you.
