Climate change

Climate change is one of the biggest threats facing humanity. In recent years, measures have been implemented in every sector of economic life, aimed at
mitigating adverse effects on the environment. Logistics and the supply chain are an important part of economic activity. In Greece, the first steps towards green practices in the field of logistics have begun to be taken. However, it is necessary to intensify their application immediately, in order to mitigate the environmental footprint of the sector. In the immediate future, everything shows that government and social pressures on companies to take environmental measures will intensify.
Transport and logistics are the second highest emitting industry on the planet, responsible for 11% of global carbon emissions. At the same time, over 70% of the total carbon emissions for most businesses around the world come from their supply chains.

For this reason, Sidiropoulos Transport SA , from the end of 2023, began to measure its environmental footprint. Where possible, we minimize our environmental footprint at all stages of the supply chain. With the appropriate software and the necessary measurements, we make decisions to reduce our environmental footprint, mainly in the routing of transport vehicles. In this way we can lay the foundations for the development of a green supply chain.


In addition, the renewal of the vehicle fleet is a necessary condition for the protection of the environment, reducing emissions and contributing to the development of the “green” supply chain. In recent years, our company’s fleet has increased with the addition of 18 new technology trucks, resulting in lower fuel consumption and less environmental burdens. Our goal is at some point all of our company’s fleet to be environmentally friendly.
