By 2030, freight transport by road will increase by 30%. If we take no action, roads will become even more congested than today and CO2 emissions will grow exponentially. Lineas is already a frontrunner in modal shift, transferring freight from road to rail.
Geert Pauwels, CEO at Lineas: “The VOKA Charter is a great recognition for the team for all their efforts over the past years to not only promote the modal shift towards our customers, but also make our own ways of working more sustainable. It is a boost to keep pursuing our ambition to shift goods transport from road to rail all over Europe.”
Lineas’ mission puts sustainable development at the heart of Lineas’ core activities, leading up to 9 times less CO2, 6 times less energy consumed and 8 times less air pollution in the coming years. Next to these major environmental challenges, Lineas is also tackling other aspects of sustainability, like dealing with scarce resources, further investing in human capital and anticipating tomorrow’s needs.
