JAS Worldwide - Belgium Gets Lean & Green Award

By
January 3, 2018

Together with Gosselin Logistics, and Ahlers, JAS Forwarding Belgium NV receives recognition for actively reducing its impact on the environment.

Antwerp - Belgium - December 15th, 2017

JAS Belgium is pleased to announce that it is one of the first of three forwarders in Belgium to receive the Lean & Green Award presented by the VIL (Flemish Institute for Logistics) and the VEA (Union for Forwarders in Antwerp). The award recognizes companies who commit to reducing their CO2 emissions with at least 20% over a period of five years. As a service provider, JAS does not having any transport means of its own making this goal challenging!

JAS Worldwide - Belgium needed to compose an extensive Plan of Approach, measuring current CO2-emissions and presenting present and future efforts to reach the 20% goal. By linking every aspect of that plan to a key performance indicator, the JAS team would also be capable of measuring the impact of every part of the plan. The Plan of Approach was checked and verified by the University of Brussels, acting as a neutral evaluating party. As of December 2017 JAS - Belgium  received the Lean & Green Award, recognizing efforts on reducing the carbon footprint.

As a freight forwarder JAS controls a number of of supply chains, so it does have the power to create a modal shift. Together with our customers JAS analyzes their current streams and pro-actively looks for potential improvements within their supply network. JAS not only raises awareness and highlights the importance of sustainability within the JAS organization, but also amongst its customers and suppliers.

Sam Jespers, Implementation Manager at JAS Forwarding Belgium, is convinced of the necessity of initiatives such as Lean & Green, “Sustainability is a topic high on the agenda of the majority of our customers. By participating in the Lean & Green program we concretize our efforts. Our Plan of Approach isn’t an informal statement but a true effective action plan! I’m glad we’re in this together with Gosselin and Ahlers. Together, we can achieve more.”

All aspects of 2020 have undoubtedly been different and challenging. Placing an emphasis on the health of those around us became a primary focus and continues to be so, causing changes to traditions and disruptions to annual plans in order to protect those we care about.

At JAS, People have always made the difference and continue to do so. That is why in 2020 JAS made sure to take every precaution to keep our team and our customers safe, while still delivering good cheer. As we are living and learning to navigate this new era; JAS McAllen knew they had to maintain a safe social distance from the recipients of the annual JAS Calendar, but they still wanted to leave customers with a sense of how grateful JAS is to have them be with us for another year. Therefore JAS McAllen decided to make a caravan to deliver calendars in the parking lots of customers where possible.

There will be time to share again, meanwhile we continue to do business at a safe social distance and create new excitement in doing so.

Happy New Year 2021 from the JAS McAllen Team.
