Sustainable logistics: Three practical examples
So-called ecological solutions should be truly sustainable, not just “green”, appealing or marketing-interesting. Therefore, we invite Professor Vladimír Kočí, who is the head of the Institute of Sustainability and Product Ecology of the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague and who also deals with LCA, i.e., analyses that try to reveal/calculate the real impacts of the solution on the environment. We will first look at the overall importance of logistics and transport in sustainability strategies in companies and how LCA studies can help companies achieve their sustainability goals. Subsequently, we will focus on several specific logistics or packaging projects and evaluate the extent to which they can be considered sustainable. At a practical level, we will try to reveal where the line lies between ecologically and economically beneficial project and greenwashing.
Three examples of green logistics that will be presented at the EASTLOG congress:
- LNG vehicle test, in which Budějovický Budvar and Iveco are cooperating. Vojtěch Lechner (Budějovický Budvar) and Miroslav Hnát (Iveco) will present.
