The (climate) maligned industry

For many years, the transport industry has been criticised when it comes to climate and sustainability - but why? DTL - Danske Vognmænd and Jyske Finans want to change this perception and approach to the transport industry. A lot is already happening on the green agenda in the freight transport industry.

We are taking up the fight and showing the outside world how hauliers around the Danish country are adapting to the green transition. We will do this through a series of reports from hauliers who, in different ways, have managed to integrate agendas such as the environment, climate and sustainability in their own unique way in their particular business.

We also want to inspire those hauliers who have not yet joined the green wave. Through the reports, we focus on the many good and green initiatives that you can be inspired by. And yes, in this case it is okay to copy an idea or think about a business model that has emerged on the green wave.

Den Grønne Transportpris overrækkes til transportmessen i Herning.
