Natural resources are being depleted, living habitats are becoming scarce, and people are harming nature more and more every day. Ekol’s first priorities involve achieving sustainable growth by developing environmentally friendly business processes and projects. As such, the company supports nongovernmental organizations that work to protect wildlife. It pursues business models with an environmental focus and raises awareness among its employees with the conviction that companies must do their part to leave a more liveable world for future generations.
Every day, Ekol provides services in all corners of the globe, aspiring to use natural resources optimally and creating a more sustainable business model, while employing the Intermodal transportation model it introduced in 2008. By doing so, the company saves 365,000 trees each month.
In a single Intermodal trip, Ekol achieves the following savings without having to cover a 2,429-km long road;
- 823 liters of fuel
- 2221 kg of CO2
- 5,8 kg of NOX
- 0,08 kg of particles.
WWF Green Office Program
Ekol Logistics is pleased to be the first ever logistics company in Turkey to get involved in the WWF Green Office Program. As part of the program, it formulates and implements improvements in savings in the areas of Waste Management and Electricity and Paper Usage. The work is focused on increasing awareness among personnel.
Indeed, the Green Office Program entails awareness training for employees at Ekol facilities. Training sessions cover such topics as “WWF, Green Office, system/ecosystem, ecological footprint, water footprint, and climate change.”
In 2014, Ekol succeeded in becoming Turkey’s first logistics company to obtain the Green Office Certificate, following a final assessment by the WWF.
