Transport collaboration with CHEP sees Mahou San Miguel reduce its CO2 emissions by 12%
Mahou San Miguel joined CHEP's Collaborative Transport Solutions program in 2015. The program, with more than 225 customers throughout Europe, is designed to optimize truck routes, sharing transportation with other customers or with CHEP. This is possible thanks to the creation of a community of manufacturers where more sustainable transport models are promoted, supported by intelligent and transparent communication technologies.
During 2018, Mahou San Miguel managed to reduce the CO2 emissions associated with its road transport by 12.4% compared to 2017. Most significantly, both the brewer and Taisa Logistics, its integrated logistics operator, reduced their empty transport miles by 300,000 km and saved 400 tons of CO2 emissions.
Mahou San Miguel is also part of CHEP’s zero-emission platform program. CHEP offers its clients the possibility of compensating their annual carbon footprint, derived from pallet movements, by purchasing carbon credits from Natural Capital Partners and through the choice of a project, which each company chooses in relation to its CSR policy and geographical presence.
Since joining this initiative, the brewery has managed to reduce more than 2,000 tons of CO2. The last project chosen by the brewer was aimed at improving access to energy in India, a country in which it has a subsidiary, through the distribution of solar generators of electricity and photovoltaic solar energy, in collaboration with SELCO Solar Energy Access.
