Review Environment Day 2018
From January to December 2018, Kuehne + Nagel held the "Environment Day" all around the world. The purpose of this Day was to promote environmental awareness. Employees and the families were challenged to make a difference - at the workplace and at home. From Singapore to Brazil, from North to South, our employees gave free rein to their imagination and contributed to a better tomorrow. Thank you for each and every effort - we are looking forward to the next edition: The Environment Day 2019!
The Environment Day in Bangladesh was the first of a year round series of activities targeted to prevent water pollution, tree planting, carbon emissions reductions, and noise, river and air pollution. The Day started with a street rally with the slogan “Save the Earth”, planting 300 trees around the city, and a drama performance by our employees with the theme “plant more trees and do not waste water”.
In the United Kingdom the Environment Day was set to promote environmental awareness. Amongst the many initiatives Kuehne + Nagel fully equipped another three locations with LED lighting and reviewed the use of plastic across all operations which resulted in removing plastic cups from drinks machines in many locations. A lot of effort was put in reducing fuel by using telematics to monitor, inform and train drivers to improve their driving styles. Moreover, in a local school Kuehne + Nagel employees helped planting 200 trees!
Saudi Arabia and Bahrain
Kuehne + Nagel employees and their families in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain drew paintings with the theme “Environment Day”. Apart from that, the campaign “think before you print” was introduced in all sites together with a paper usage training, and the plastic free initiative included the distribution of porcelain cups and carry bags to promote reusable items.
