Sustainability

As market leader in the storage and distribution of temperature controlled products, Kloosterboer continues to contribute to achieving a sustainable world. Kloosterboer is proactive in this field and takes the initiative when it comes to sustainable developments. This is an important ambition for our organisation and therefore, also for our employees. On a day to day basis, we work on continuously reducing the impact of our activities on the environment. Examples: 

  • developing automated warehouses that use 37% to 45% less energy compared to a conventional warehouse
  • installing wind turbines and solar panels (e.g. Vlissingen and Maasvlakte)
  • consolidation of transport and use of engery saving means and modes of transport (barge, rail, LHV)
  • energy-efficient LED lighting used in a well designed lighting plans across every Kloosterboer location
  • sustainable expansion according to the Dutch Green Building Council standards. An example of this is the BREEAM-NL certification, 3 star ("very good") new construction certificate awarded for the expansion of the Kloosterboer Delta Terminal
  • Kloosterboer is affiliated with the Lean & Green network and is the first cold store company to be awarded the Lean & Green Award. This is the first step towards achieving our ambition of reducing our CO2 emissions by 20% within 5 years
