There are many elements to be considered when it comes to moving consumer packaged goods in a sustainable way… transportation, warehousing and logistics of products from nature, to the factory, to your favourite store’s shelf.

Supply chains have become more complex over the past century, especially given the recent rise of e-commerce, allowing companies to extend their reach to source better, cheaper and sell to more distant markets. But this increased movement of goods affects our planet, through rising greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts. To discuss and learn from leading best practices in sustainable transportation and logistics, Kruger Products convened their third annual Leaders in Sustainable Thinking Roundtable, which brought companies together to discuss challenges and opportunities in finding more sustainable transit solutions.

Enabling Future Leaders to Think Sustainably – Kruger Products Develops Education Program

Students of today are the leaders of tomorrow. We have an opportunity to teach them right from wrong, good from bad and demonstrate by example how a vision can translate into action and make a difference in the world.

Big Companies can Make Big Differences

This ideology is the driver behind many decisions Kruger Products makes in terms of sustainability and corporate social responsibility. “We know that when we reduce our emissions by 15% or commit to a cause, we can make more of an impact than an individual choosing to reduce his emissions by 15% or donating to a cause,” says Steven Sage, VP Sustainability & Innovation Kruger Products. Making a difference is something that Kruger Products takes seriously, which is why it embarked on Sustainability 2015, it’s five-year journey to reduce its environmental impact, in the first place.
