Logistics & Supply Chain Green Initiative of the Year:

Winner: DHL/JD Wetherspoon

JD-Wetherspoon-lohoAs a link with one of the biggest potential impacts on the wine industry’s environmental footprint, the logistics sector is under particular pressure to find ways of reducing its emissions without compromising on cost or efficiency.

While many companies are to be commended for the steps they have taken in the last year, the judges were particularly inspired by DHL’s joint 2012 project with UK pub chain JD Wetherspoon.

DHLIn addition to technical solutions and staff training aimed at raising awareness of energy saving measures, the two firms have established a “Go WEST” team, enabling employees to get behind wider initiatives such as Climate Week, World Environment Day and environmental charities.

With promising reductions achieved within the first year of this scheme, it offers a model for others that the green challenge can sometimes be tackled more effectively as part of a team.

Shortlist:

Carbotek

DHL/ JD Wetherspoon

Viña Santa Rita

Kingsland Wines & Spirits
