What we stand for
We act responsibly
GLS takes its responsibility towards its staff, society and the environment seriously and is committed to equality, to education and to minimising environmental impact.
Environmental focus areas are greater energy efficiency, increased use of renewable energy and emissions reduction.
Through optimised route planning, GLS manages to shorten its delivery routes. Furthermore, the number of low-emission vehicles is steadily increased. The Group also considers green aspects in new buildings projects, for example installing heat pumps and rainwater harvesting systems.
The majority of GLS companies already operate an ISO 14001-certified environmental management system.
GLS is committed to a close relationship of mutual respect with all staff and transport partners.
Social institutions are supported on a regular basis, both with donations and with the free provision of transport services.
Sustainability at GLS means:
- use of low-emission vehicles
- environmentally-friendly new buildings and modernisation
- reduction in fuel, paper and electricity consumption
- continuing professional development of our staff
- close, long-term partnerships with our transport partners
- social responsibility in practice nationally and locally
