Biofuels and blends: renewable fuels for greener air travel

The goal of the international air transport industry is ambitious: Global air traffic should achieve carbon-neutral growth by 2020 and reduce net carbon emissions by 50% from 2005 to 2050.

Significance of sustainability on the rise in logistics

Strategic sustainability management is becoming more and more important in the transport and logistics sector, and there are several reasons for this: greater environmental awareness among the general public, increasing pressure on costs in the use of resources as well as legal requirements.
