The fact that we have obtained the ISO 14001 label is a demonstration of our approach, and of our implementation of environmental management systems which contribute to the essential environmental goal of sustainable development.
In 2013 Berthod Transports SA won the special jury award at
Valais excellence certification, a crowning recognition of our environmental policy. This is expressed, for example, in the wish to reduce our speed by 3 km/h… to economise 3 litres per 100 km without any loss of productivity.
In practical terms, we used the geolocation system very early. This constantly controls our vehicles’ routes, and ensures that there is no superfluous use of fuel or driving of superfluous kilometres.
Secondly, almost all our lorry fleet complies with the Euro 6 standard, strongly limiting carbon dioxide emissions.
