The initiative, promoted by the Spanish Group for Green Growth, was created with the aim of raising awareness of the importance of climate action and the opportunity for companies to commit to sustainable solutions.
It currently has the support of 9 large companies, including Correos, Iberdrola and Telefónica.
Transfesa Logistics is once again committed to sustainability by joining the new campaign of the Spanish Group for Green Growth (GECV). Under the name #Ambición2022, the initiative was created with the aim of raising awareness of the sustainable solutions being implemented by different companies.
The need to continue facing climate, geostrategic and economic challenges has motivated the creation of this campaign. Made up of almost ten companies, including Correos, Iberdrola and Telefónica, it seeks to highlight the value of sustainable actions by different companies.
The aim is to integrate a vision that incorporates the opportunities associated with growth, employment, competitiveness and improved energy security in an environmentally friendly way.
The advantages offered by this change are also highlighted, since “beyond being a necessity, it is an opportunity at European and global level”.
This is how Gonzalo Sáenz de Miera, Chairman of the GECV and Director of Climate Change and Alliances at Iberdrola, explains it. “It is time to accelerate the commitment to the green economy, not only for environmental reasons, but also to reduce our energy dependence, achieve more affordable energy and promote more resilient and sustainable production and consumption processes, taking advantage of industrial opportunities and job creation”, he stresses.
Transfesa is part of #Ambition2022 for its sustainable initiative “Freight belongs on rail”, which aims to reduce emissions from freight transport by up to 80%.
This campaign is committed to the intelligent combination of rail and road transport in order to achieve the climate objectives by 2030, by reducing emissions and external transport costs and moving from a 4% share to a 10% share.
With the collaboration of major organisations such as Renfe Mercancías, Adif, the European Parliament and the Spanish Railways Foundation, among many others, the aim is to raise awareness of the role that trains can play in the fight to decarbonise the transport sector.
Freight belongs on rail was born in Germany on the occasion of the European Year of the Railway, and was brought to Spain by Transfesa Logistics. Valencia, Alicante, Barcelona and Logroño are some of the cities that have witnessed this initiative, which continues its journey through Spain to make visible the role of the railway in the transition to sustainability.
