DB Schenker´s environmental work

  1. 1. DB Schenker Our environmental work
  2. 2. Transport and impact on the environment Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 The background to all the alarming reports. The climate issue is not a temporary trend - we have to act now! Carbon dioxide content in the atmosphere (1860-2000) Temperature changes (1860-2000)
  3. 3. Transport and impact on the environment Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 Transport is the only sector increasing its carbon dioxide emissions. The diagram shows the situation in Sweden, but the issue is global. Source: The Swedish National Environment Protection Board
  4. 4. The DB Group’s environmental work - resources at various level s Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 <ul><li>The climate issue is one of DB Schenker Group’s strategic areas. </li></ul><ul><li>The resources for working towards a sustainable transport system are located on various levels. </li></ul><ul><li>Land Transport: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DB environmental department, Berlin, Germany </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DB Schenker, PM Land, Essen, Germany </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DB Schenker, Market, Göteborg, Sweden </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DB Schenker Consulting, Göteborg & Stockholm, Sweden </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>DB Schenker, Division Land - each local district office in Sweden has its own environmental coordinator </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. DB Group's environmental work - climate goals for reduced carbon dioxide emission s Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 <ul><li>DB Schenker’s common climate objective is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20% per ton-kilometre by 2020. </li></ul><ul><li>DB Schenker in Sweden has set itself an even tougher objective - halving the emissions per ton-kilometre by 2020. </li></ul>
  6. 6. DB Schenker Sweden - environmental objectiv e Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 <ul><li>Our ambition </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To use all the means available to DB Schenker to become the most environmentally sustainable logistics provider in the world. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Our comprehensive environmental objective </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce our carbon dioxide emissions in every transport assignment by 50% through to 2020. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>We will reach our objectives by following a seven point programme: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>driver behaviour – eco driving at the right speed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>modernisation of our vehicle fleet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>better fuels </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>inter-modality and combined traffic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>optimisation of vehicle combinations </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>improved vehicle utilisation – higher </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> filling levels/reduced mileage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>smarter distribution in cities </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. DB Schenker Sweden - reduced carbon dioxide emission s Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 Improved use of capacity means reduced estimated carbon dioxide per transported ton.
  8. 8. DB Schenker Sweden - reduced overall emissions Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 An updated vehicle fleet and better use of capacity means a reduction in the quantity of particles, hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide per transported ton.

  12. 12. DB Schenker Sweden - Public transport for good s Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 <ul><li>Collective goods transport is as obvious as choosing public transport instead of taking the car. </li></ul><ul><li>Our aim </li></ul><ul><li>“ Using public transport for people and goods improves cities, creating less traffic and a lively city centre.&quot; </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategically located terminals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Routes for supplying goods transport in both directions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Offer city logistics solutions to the largest cities in Sweden </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vehicles adapted for city logistics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Modern and energy-efficient vehicles </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. DB Schenker Sweden - Follow up routine for transport operators Schenker AB, 05.10.2009 <ul><ul><li>Schenker sends out two surveys to its partner transport operators once a year. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The survey is sent by email and the answers are collected in a database. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>One of the surveys deals with vehicle specific questions - Euro class, fuel consumption, etc.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The other survey deals with 'soft questions'. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The answers are evaluated centrally and some of the hauliers are contacted. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The answers are sorted by Schenker district and sent to the corresponding ‘head office’ for a personal review between the haulier and the district manager. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In 2008, responses were received from hauliers representing 89% of the vehicles in Schenker’s national transport. </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Different methods of transport – a comparison Schenker AB, 06.10.2009 <ul><ul><li>Train </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Trains are generally very energy efficient and nearly always the best alternative for land transport from an environmental point of view, particularly in Sweden where trains run on electricity produced from hydro and nuclear energy (electricity generated by coal is not as environmentally friendly). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Truck </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>New trucks are often more energy efficient than older vehicles, but it is the regulated emissions such as particles (PM), ni trogen dioxide (NOX), sulphur oxide (SOX) and hydrogen (HC) that have decreased with every new Euro class. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ship </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Shipping is often energy efficient because of the large amount of goods transported per unit - speed also affects fuel consumption.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The current drawback is the high nitrogen and sulphur oxide emissions. Better fuels and cleaning techniques are available. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Airplane </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air transport requires a lot of energy and is therefore linked with high carbon dioxide emissions for each transported unit. The developmental focus here is on more energy-efficient engines and renewable fuels. </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. - Emissions calculations for DB Schenker customers Schenker AB, 06.10.2009 <ul><ul><li>A new emissions report will be launched in 2009. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The customer can access the emissions report by logging in to ‘MySchenker’ - login details can be ordered from Customer Services. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Applies to national and international land transport, conventional goods, refrigeration and parcels. </li></ul></ul>
