The project, which had its first test at the end of last summer, is part of the company’s ‘Lean & Green’ initiative. Its objective is to decrease in 20% the CO2 emissions of the Supply Chain in a period of 5 years.
Among other actions, Saica is working with Carreras to use Iveco Stralis NP trucks in all mid and long distance transportation, so the CO2 emissions will be reduced in 22.3% compared to regular diesel trucks. The new Iveco vehicle, with a 460 CV engine, has the same payload as a traditional truck and a range of up to 1,500km, but with a lesser carbon footprint.
For Saica, ‘Lean & Green’ project has great importance due to its impact in the decarbonisation of the transportation. Besides, is an example of our commitment to work with suppliers and customers to achieve a sustainable development throughout the production cycle.
