WE ACT WITH SPIRIT.
We're happy to leave our comfort zone!
It's the only way to...
...contribute to sustainable development!
...noticeably transform the world!
...live up to our responsibilities!
We orient our actions on the targets for sustainable development, which were drawn up by the United Nations. These are the SDGs, the Sustainable Development Goals. This allows us to offer significant value added to our customers, and to actively promote the transport transition as an attractive employer. Overall, not only do these targets set us a guideline for our actions, we also make a promise to our customers and to society. We are firmly convinced that our consistent alignment on the SDGs can bring about both ecological and social changes.
We have made a conscious decision to concentrate on three priority SDGs, and four more of the seventeen SDGS, that we as a company can have the greatest influence on, now and in the future. We deliberately take a holistic approach and consider all possible directions for defining and implementing targeted measures with the greatest possible impact.
SDG9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Our strength lies in our flexibility.
Logistics networks are essential to our globally-networked economy. Disrupted supply chains mean missing goods and production stops, which affect every single person. We focus on building up a sustainable, resilient, high-quality and reliable combined transport infrastructure in order to support SDG 9 and strengthen worldwide supply chains. In the process, we network regions in combined transport, concentrate goods across regions, work with synchromodality and create cooperation.
SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth
We will only grow as a company if we grow together.
As a company, we are planning to grow through sustainability and innovation, not least to reach climate targets, and will secure and create jobs in the process. These successes are the result of teamwork and the appreciation shown towards all employees. With satisfied employees we can also continuously improve our processes, because everyone can contribute and drive forward their ideas. The many employee service anniversaries are also a clear sign of the healthy working atmosphere we have. Consequently, SDG 8 is a central element of our corporate philosophy.
SDG 3: Good health and well-being
We create a healthy and safe working atmosphere.
Health and satisfaction are closely linked. What is essential here is that our employees feel good – physically and mentally. This is why occupational safety, appreciation and responsibility towards our employees are right at the top of our agenda.
SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy
Active transport transition – but not without the energy transition!
We are driving forward the transport transition and count on alternative drives, which create growing demands for clean energy. Reducing total emissions long-term can only be achieved if the energy transition and the transport transition go hand in hand. This means SDG 7 is of decisive importance in order to sensibly shape the conversion to sustainable drives, both financially and ecologically.
SDG 4: Quality education
Education – our most important tool.
Our society and our requirements at work and in everyday life change every single day. So it is all the more important to be prepared, both personally and as a company, to meet changed conditions in all areas of life, to stay curious and to keep learning throughout life. Because movement – whether on the roads, the rails, on the water or in our heads – is the prerequisite to be able to flexibly react to the most varied scenarios.
SDG 17: Partnerships for the goals
Many people can move much.
All people and organisations working together is the basic condition for implementing all the SDGs. Everyone must make their contribution. Working together and dialogue with each other will reinforce this. This is what SDG 17 stands for, which is why we are actively committed and see ourselves as part of a large movement. We can achieve much more if we work together as partners in collaboration with other players!
SDG 13: Climate action plan
Actions speak louder than words
It's a sad fact that even in the long term, it won't be possible to plant enough trees, set up enough insect hotels or irrigate enough marshlands to meet the United Nations' goal of global climate neutrality by 2045. But this is exactly why we need to act together with urgency, and at CONTARGO, we're working constantly to find practical solutions which help us to contribute to decarbonisation. We are also massively affected by the effects of climate change.
