Economy and Ecology are interlinked and if you want to reduce your ecological footprint as well as your expenses, we invite you to join the LEAN & GREEN Programme and the LEAN & GREEN Club.

LEAN and GREEN is an international stimulation programme for businesses and authorities, implemented by Connekt: a Dutch non-profit network for sustainable mobility. It aims to encourage businesses and government bodies to move to a higher level of sustainability, by taking measures that do not only yield cost savings, but reduce the burden on the environment at the same time. The LEAN and GREEN label was launched in Luxembourg on June 25th 2014. A third party audits the Sustainable Logistics Label, making sure it withstands the requirements of authenticity needed in Europe.

What's in for you:

  • One programme - multiple advantages: The programme is compatible with sustainable requirements like Objectif CO2 (France) and can be a gateway to comply with existing or upcoming mandatory regulations. This programme helps you to get in line with the objectives like COP 22 and labels like Iso 14001 or EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS).
  • Savings mean savings: Reducing your emissions by 20% is not only an ecological action but provides also financial benefits. By joining the movement, you automatically make your process leaner and reduce your costs.
  • You cannot enhance what you do not measure: The programme enables you to get an overview of your transport and logistics processes and your ecological footprint. By following our calculation methods, you will learn how much CO2 you produce - and how you can reduce that. 
  • Wide recognition: The label is broadly recognized while the programme itself is now available in 16 countries in Europe and North America: The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden (pilot project), Canada and the United States of America. Companies that have achieved the Lean & Green 1 Star level can also join the Europe-wide programme. Lean & Green International supports the incorporation of various national sustainability programs into an international label.
  • Find new solutions and collaboration possibilities: After achieving your programme and receiving the star label, the key to further excellence are collaborative projects. One star-labeled companies are capable to look together for new ways to enhance their savings even further.
  • Stronger together: Instead of working out how to reduce your emissions by yourself, we provide solutions in a community approach. Next to the individual support, common workgroups bring together all the actors to learn from each other. While every company has different requirements and challenges, it is possible to find new solutions by broadening your point of view.
  • Enhanced customer acquisition: You can differentiate yourself from lowcost competitors who show no concern for environmental questions by providing this genuine ecolabel to your existing and potential customers. Shippers expect sustainable services and are increasingly refraining to work with companies that have no or low standards.
  • The network always wins: The LEAN & GREEN family spans now over 550 members. When you participate, you can access this community to find new solutions and solution providers.

Initiated in the Netherlands in 2008 by the agency Connekt, the LEAN and GREEN phenomenon now concerns more than 600 companies in the European Union.
