FORWARD Belgium, the Belgian Freight Forwarding Association, a professional association that represents the interests of the Belgian shipping industry (formerly VEA) presented its first awards for sustainability achievements on November 16, 2021.
The association had launched an awards programme called “FORWARD Goals for Sustainable Development” to encourage its members to invest in green and sustainable solutions and to contribute to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015.
FORWARD members who are awarded the FORWARD GOALS distinction are able to demonstrate to their clients that they place a high priority on sustainable entrepreneurship and using the latest best practices for lowering the environmental impact of transport.
Symbolising sustainability and ecology, the FORWARD Awards are made of wood.
Not only did Ziegler win the Gold “FORWARD Goals for Sustainable Development” label, but also received a second special “Sustainability Award” for our Cargo Bike and innovative city logistics solutions.
These two awards are undeniably a recognition of our initiatives to intentionally implement green logistics practices and become a model of good environmental methods in our sector. And we look forward to doing more!
Ziegler. Now Even Greener.
