Transport and mobility





Every year, our lorries cover around 8,000,000 kilometres to deliver to our stores. We ensure that our fleet always operates at an optimum level with regard to sustainability standards and are steadily increasing the proportion of vehicles with Euro 6E emission standard approval. At the same time, we are continuously assessing the extent to which zero-emission vehicles can be added to our fleet. We estimate that we will be able to make the first delivery routes to our stores emission-free in the next few years. Telematics systems are installed in the vehicles that analyse the respective driving style of our colleagues behind the wheel. The findings help us to offer individual eco-training to teach them to drive in a fuel-efficient way that generates fewer emissions. Our drivers are regularly trained by team leaders who have been trained as eco-trainers.




By providing an infrastructure with a sufficient number of charging points for electric vehicles, we are participating in the development of electromobility in Germany at all our company locations. Employees can use these points to charge their private electric vehicles. The charging of the vehicles is almost emission-free as renewable energy sources are used at all our sites. Our aim is to continuously expand the number of charging points at our sites in line with demand.




We are constantly developing our mobility services in a sustainable way. This means that whenever new purchases are made, all available vehicle models with electrified drive technology are considered. The issue of climate action also plays an important role when it comes to the vehicles we use with conventional internal combustion engines. For example, the company only offers employees vehicle models with CO2-efficient engines. Thanks to the combination of CO2-optimised and electrified vehicles, the Ernsting’s family fleet has evolved in an environmentally friendly way.
