COP22: Signature of the Moroccan Green Logistics Charter

November 30th, 2016

Morocco has drawn up a new charter for green logistics. Around fifty institutional, business and logistics organizations including Bolloré Logistics and also a dozen professional associations and federations covering the logistics and transport, export, food, construction, fishing, consulting and engineering sectors signed this new charter at the COP22 in Marrakesh.

On November 11th, the Moroccan Logistics Development Agency organized a ceremony for the signing of the Moroccan green logistics charter in partnership with the Moroccan General Business Confederation. This event, part of the Moroccan Green Logistics initiative, was an opportunity to discuss “Green Logistics” best practices within a global framework and highlight current or forecast green logistics initiatives in Morocco.

The General Management of Bolloré Logistics Morocco is planning a campaign with two key focuses: raising team awareness about the challenges of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in transport by promoting the CO2 calculator* to allow customers to assess the carbon footprint of their transport operations; and also subcontractor selection according to the Group’s CSR criteria.

The charter’s signatories pledge to support and promote projects and initiatives contributing to the development of green logistics on different levels, for the development and operation of environmentally efficient infrastructures and installations, the use of clean materials and equipment, the adoption of clean practices for logistics management, training, research and development as well as standardization and certification.
