TIL Logistics Group Signatory to Climate Leaders Coalition

Listed transport and logistics company, TIL Logistics Group Limited (NZX: TLL) is proud to be a member of the Climate Leaders Coalition, which was launched on 12 July 2018.

The coalition comprises 60 businesses - including Z Energy, Westpac, Ngai Tahu Holdings, Vector, Air New Zealand, Spark and NZ Post as well as TIL Logistics Group - which have joined forces to tackle the issue of climate change. The coalition’s goal is to help New Zealand transition to a low emissions economy and, in doing so, create a positive future for New Zealanders, business and the economy.

TIL Logistics Group welcomes the stance being taken by the coalition to drive positive change, with CEO Alan Pearson saying: “TIL is proud to be one of the first signatories of the Climate Leaders Coalition. We are committed to working together as part of the coalition to create a sustainable future for New Zealand and make it a great place to live and work - now and for future generations. This not only makes good sense for our country, but also good economic sense for our business.”

TIL Logistics Group is committing resources to its efforts to lower emissions through improving its own operations, with a number of initiatives including:

• Cornerstone partner with Z Energy for the use of Bio Fuels across TIL’s 1,000 truck fleet in New Zealand (see article);
• Engagement of in-cab technology, such as ERoad, to monitor Driver behaviour for fuel efficiency;
• Use of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to reduce emissions;
• Investment in LED lighting across all TIL Logistics Group’s warehouses. New facilities are designed to maximise energy efficiency as much as possible; and
• Investing in video conferencing to reduce flights and travel.

“We will continue to identify and invest in new initiatives to further improve our fuel efficiency, cut our electricity use and reduce waste”, says Alan Pearson.
