'Lean and Green' deliveries in the Netherlands



As part of the Dutch government's Lean and Green initiative, our business in the Netherlands undertook to cut CO2 emissions from its distribution activities by 20% between 2007 and 2012. Other leading organisations making the same commitment included Hema, Coca-Cola and Douwe Egberts.

Royal Grolsch took a number of actions including changing its deliveries to coincide with times when the roads are quietest, typically at night. This has helped to reduce emissions by almost 22%.

Lean and Green is an initiative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and now has 173 participants.
