Being an environmentally responsible company means getting the balance of economic, social, and environmental factors right.
To keep the world safe and clean for future generations is a priority for Girteka. By working with us you contribute to these important objectives.
We strive in our daily work to maintain the highest environmental standards throughout our company. We work to conserve resources like energy and water, to raise awareness among employees and in the community.
Greener trucks and trailers
We have the youngest and most environmentally friendly fleet available. Girteka has a modern fleet of over 9 000 trucks with an average age of just 2 years. They meet Euro 6 emission standards. Compared with earlier models, they release much less CO2 and other pollutants into the environment. And our trailers use the latest fuel-efficient cooling technologies, with solar batteries to charge the cooling units.
Girteka has a well-implemented Environmental Management System (EMS) which is certified under the ISO 14001 standard. That reassures clients about our green commitment and helps us continually improve.
The main goals of our EMS are:
- to reduce pollution, CO2 emissions, and waste
- to increase the sorting and recycling of waste
- to build awareness by involving employees and partners in efforts to protect the environment
- to apply green criteria for purchasing
- to comply with environmental legislation
- to prevent potential environmental incidents and be ready to address any that might occur
Some of our other practical green initiatives include a focus on intermodal forms of transportation, energy-efficient office buildings, and the use of eco-friendly paper and electronic invoicing.
