Conad Joins Sustainability Network Ecologistico2
Italian retailer Conad has joined Ecologistico2, a network of Italian companies promoting environmental protection and sustainability throughout the supply chain.
The network was created by ECR Italia, an association of leading industry and distribution companies that aims to innovate processes and improve the efficiency of the producer-distributor-consumer chain.
By joining Ecologistico2, Conad will share the activities it has undertaken to improve the environmental impact of its logistics activities and the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Conad has already implemented an action plan for the supply chain of its private label products. Thanks to logistics optimisation in terms of vehicle saturation and fleet modernisation, the greater use of alternative transport, and the introduction of centralised hubs, Conad has managed to increase the efficiency of its transport by 3% between 2014 and 2016.
