RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
We aim to reduce our CO2 impact across our value chain, from farm to cup.
WE FOCUS ON THE REDUCTION OF CO2 EMISSION:
• Net zero emissions in Scope 1&2 by 2030
• Net zero emissions in Scope 3 by 2040
• 30% reduction of waste to landfill by 2030
ELECTRIFICATION OF OUR FLEET
Our fleet consists of 5,000 vehicles of which the majority is used in operations (85%). As a result of the Green Car Policy launched in 2021, the Selecta fleet is transitioning to fully electric or hybrid. In 2022, we launched two lighthouse to replaced vehicles by full electric representing 75% of the fleet in Oslo and 100% in Amsterdam. We are extending these efforts across all markets in the next years.
ROUTE OPTIMIZATION AND TELEMETRY
We look after 410,000 points of sale across Europe from which 35% is covered by our telemetry program. This enables us to monitor stock and machine condition remotely and plan journeys dynamically to minimise travel. In this way, we have immediate insight into what machines need to be replenished and what products need to be pre-kitted.
In our operation vehicles, we use telematics to gain insight in the performance of our vehicles. Data is collected about driving behavior, fuel consumption and mileage. Telematics is implemented to improve the safety of our drivers and reduce the number of accidents, but also to further improve the sustainability of our fleet by reducing carbon emissions through ‘best driving practices.
To reduce our carbon footprint, we switch to green electricity contracts in our owned buildings. Currently, 56% of the electricity we consumed is generated from renewable sources. We have 2,487 solar panels with a capacity of 1,151 kWh.at the Pelican Rouge Coffee Roasters, located in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. At our offices, we are installing energy efficient lighting and heating as well as charging points for electric cars.
Most of the organic waste from the Pelican Rouge coffee roaster facility is collected and processed on a weekly basis into green electricity and heat in a biomass fermentation plant. Additional waste streams, such as plastic, are collected separately. In 2021, we set up a pilot to produce vibratory silent blocks out of the plastic waste. These blocks are developed to minimize noise nuisance from roadside pavements without losing the signalling function for drivers.
