Minimising environmental impact

Minimising environmental impact

Logista is committed to minimising the environmental impact of its business operations.

Its Quality, Environment and Energy Efficiency Policy establishes guidelines and good practices which are designed to optimise the use of resources and prevent its processes from causing pollution – in strict compliance with regulations and the voluntary targets which the Group has signed up to.

Logista is therefore involved in various initiatives that aim to control and manage the current and foreseeable impacts of its operations on the environment, and to address key environmental aspects.

Logista has specified the main environmental and quality indicators relevant to its sustainable development, and monitors and evaluates these regularly, carrying out energy audits in each country and for each business.

In addition, Logista champions respect for the environment among its employees, customers, suppliers and society as a whole. Logista was one of the signatory companies to Spain’s 2020 ‘manifesto for a sustainable economic recovery’.

This declaration advocates a recovery towards a more sustainable and robust economy and calls for alliances that will ensure the stimulus policies put in place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic are aligned with both sustainability policies and the European Green Deal, in addition to being effective from a socioeconomic perspective.

The Quality, Environment and Energy Efficiency Policy is available for all employees and other stakeholders on the Group’s Intranet and on its corporate website.

Pursuant to the ISO 14064 standard, Logista has also calculated its carbon footprint, using the methodology set out in the GHG Protocol. The Environmental Management System of Logista’s businesses in Spain is also certified according to the ISO 14001 standard.

The Group promotes the renovation of its facilities, as well as the fleet subcontracted to more efficient and less polluting modes of transport, favoring the reduction of CO2e emissions, as well as other substances that deplete the ozone layer (ODS), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx) and other significant air emissions.

Environmental management

Logista includes environmental risks and opportunities in its multidisciplinary procedure for managing risks across the Group. The risk assessment process takes environmental risks and opportunities into account, including those arising from changes in regulations, the physical environment and other climate-related developments.

In 2021, Logista incorporated all of the recommendations issued by the “Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures” (TCFD) into the assessment of risks and opportunities related to climate change.

These recommendations not only apply to financial institutions but to any other organisation, particularly the four sectors potentially most affected by climate change: energy, transport, materials and buildings, and agriculture, food and forestry. The objective of this initiative is to provide information about the economic impact of climate change on the organisation, so that the Group’s stakeholders (whether they are clients, lenders or investors) can have a clear idea of the material risks that lie ahead.

The TCFD analysis carried out by Logista has considered two sets of physical scenarios (low emissions and high emissions) and two sets of transition scenarios (“Stated Policies Scenario” and “Future Policies for Sustainable Development”).


Emissions scenarios

a) Low emissions: Logista has selected the RCP 4.5 scenario as the common scenario for lower emissions into the atmosphere. The outlook in the RCP 4.5 scenario includes major mitigation action and as a result sees emissions into the atmosphere peaking around the year 2040 before beginning to decline.

b) High emissions: the company has chosen the RCP 8.5 scenario for analysing climate projections in a future with high emissions. The RCP outlook is a Business-as-Usual (BaU) scenario in which GHG emissions continue to rise at the current pace. This is a worst-case scenario of higher GHG emissions into the atmosphere and increased global warming.


Transition scenarios

a) Stated Policies Scenario (SPS): only policies that have been formally adopted by governments or are derived from current trends already observed in social, business, technological or market fields have been considered. For example, Spain’s National Energy and Climate Plans.

b) Future Policies for Sustainable Development scenario: the scenario adopted includes more ambitious reductions than current policies, in which the rise in global temperatures is kept below the 2ºC indicated in the Paris Agreement.

Logista completed an analysis of the above emissions and transitional scenarios, as outlined by the TCFD, and identified future risks and opportunities.

Logista subsequently assessed the economic impacts (impact on revenue, expenditure, assets, etc.), in line with the TCFD. The impacts on the Group’s specific services (products and services, supply chain/value chain, adaptation and mitigation, investment in R&D and operations) were also assessed, together with the Group’s resilience to impacts, i.e. its capacity to respond to physical and transitional risks and to take advantage of opportunities identified.

In order to fulfil the TCFD requirements, a cross-cutting procedure has been implemented in the organisation, involving all its members in the identification and assessment of risks.

Under Logista’s climate-related risk and opportunities management system, the identification and assessment of risks, must be carried out at least once per year. In reality, this is carried out a lot more often than this due to the ongoing monitoring and review of the risk management process.

This risk management process is applied to all the Group’s business areas, departments and across all countries in which it operates (Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and Poland).

The results of this risk identification and assessment process are collated and reported to the Internal Audit Department.


Procedure for prioritising climate-related risks and opportunities

Climate change risks and opportunities are prioritised on the basis of the ratings obtained from applying the corporate methodology. However, all climate-related risks and opportunities, not only those with a significant impact, are taken into account in the Company’s strategy and objectives.

This methodology generally covers a period of between five and seven years, as a longer period would involve more uncertainties. However, depending on the type of risk, a longer period could be considered.

The procedure for prioritising climate-related risks and opportunities follows the same stages as the risk management procedure across the Group.

Logista has also prepared a TCFD-compliant report on climate-related risks and opportunities, fulfilling the requirements of the four declarations (governance, strategy, risk management and objectives and metrics).


Main environment-related risks and opportunities

Physical risks

Risk

Relevance

Explanation

Acute physical

Relevant

Acute physical risks mean those that are caused by events, including the greatest severity of extreme weather events such as cyclones, hurricanes and floods. Cyclones and hurricanes do not affect the countries in which Logista operates. Snowfall, storms and floods are possible, although their probability is low.

Floods or storms could cause an interruption to distribution operations at the Group’s warehouses.

The number and frequency of these events is very low. When these climate events have occurred, Logista’s rapid and effective response in the materialisation of this risk has resulted in a low impact. However, the fact that a service interruption may occur means that the impact of this risk should be considered very significant.

Chronic physical

Not relevant

Temperature and rainfall patterns may change, affecting animal species such as Lasioderma serricorne, commonly known as the tobacco beetle. Logista stores and distributes the final tobacco product, so the probability and the impact of any plague is much lower than at the manufacturer’s premises. This risk has therefore also been identified as not relevant.

Transitional risks

Risk

Relevance

Explanation

Current regulations

Not relevant

Logista is analysing the impact of carbon taxes on fossil fuels, because although Logista sub-contracts vehicles for its transport activity, incorporating them into its operations, any carbon tax that is applied to fossil fuels will affect Logista’s operational costs through its impact on the prices of transport providers sub-contracted by Logista.

Nonetheless, this type of risk has been identified as not relevant, with a moderate probability and a low impact.

New regulations

Relevant

Europe’s strategy to be the leading carbon neutral economy by 2050, hence exceeding the commitment made in the Paris Agreement, would require new regulations that would affect all business sub-sectors and companies. This strategy includes other objectives such as decarbonising transport.

This will also be complemented by increasingly greater restrictions on vehicles’ access to cities. It is envisaged that these restrictions, until now isolated and supported by local regulations, may become widespread in all cities, supported by a common regulatory framework.

The Group may be indirectly affected by this risk, since its transport operations are sub-contracted, and account for more than 90% of all Logista’s emissions.

This type of risk has been identified as relevant, with a moderate probability and a moderate impact.

Technology

Relevant

New technology designed to reduce carbon emissions from transport is relevant to Logista, since existing and future regulations are pushing in this direction, and 90% of the Company’s emissions are generated by its transport division’s operations.

This type of risk has been identified as relevant, with a moderate probability and a moderate impact.

Legal

Not relevant

Legal risks have been identified as not relevant due to the nature of Logista’s business operations.

Moreover, the Group considers that there is very little probability of this risk materialising and the impact if it did would be low.

Market

Not relevant

Logista distributes different types of products, and a change in consumer behaviour may affect the business of the Group in question.

This risk has been identified as not relevant to Logista.

Reputation 

No Significant

This risk has been identified as not relevant to Logista, since the Group’s business model helps to minimise the main climate-related impact.

Opportunities

Opportunity

Explanation

Efficiency of resources

Although Logista outsources its transport operations, this process is fully integrated into its business operations and taken into account when calculating the company’s environmental impact. The Group could reduce operating costs by using more efficient means of transport, which could also be key to allowing the Group to meet its carbon emissions reduction targets. 

In this regard, these savings could be achieved by using vehicles that are partially financed and/or subsidised, or by increasing Logista’s market share in cities with low emission zones.

Logista is also already developing its transport decarbonisation strategy to include measures such as transport by rail or switching to vehicles with low carbon technology.

Energy resources

Cost reductions in the very long term, resulting from falling production costs of electrical energy from renewable sources. Logista uses electricity from renewable sources at 99% of its premises.

The resources that Logista allocates to the prevention of environmental risks include:

Given the Group’s business activity, Logista does not have any environmental provisions or guarantees that could be significant in relation to the Company’s assets, its financial position or results. However, Logista is insured, applying the precautionary principle, through a civil liability policy that covers claims for personal injury and damages accidentally caused by sudden or unexpected contaminating events.

During the financial year 2021, the Group has not been subject to any relevant fine or sanction in environmental matters.


Climate change

The Group calculates and promotes the reduction of its carbon footprint, as part of its initiatives to minimise the environmental impact of its operations.

Logista calculates the carbon footprint of all its businesses and operations in the different countries in which it operates. This calculation includes the most relevant of the Group’s outsourced operations, such as 100% of the emissions resulting from transport and franchise operations, as well as indirect operations such as the purchase of goods and services. The calculation is based on the following recognised reporting standards: Greenhouse Gas Protocol, UNE-EN 16258:2013: Methodology for calculation and declaration of energy consumption and GHG emissions of transport services (freight and passengers) and ISO 14064-1:2019: Greenhouse gases - Part 1: Specification with guidance at the organization level for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions and removals.

An independent accredited entity verifies the carbon footprint calculation under the UNE-EN ISO 14064-3 standard, confirming the figures, reliability and traceability of the process.

The Group’s transport division also notifies its clients, free of charge, of the carbon footprint of their deliveries and travels.

  • Noise and light pollution

Noise during daytime and night-time hours is measured at each of Logista’s facilities as per the frequency stipulated by environmental regulations. If the measurements show values close to the legal limit, action plans have been established to correct the noise level.

Light pollution is not significant, so the Group has made no specific arrangements for this aspect.


  • Measures adopted to adapt to the consequences of climate change

The current risk management system provides for the analysis and definition of action plans to address the consequences that climate change may have for the Company in the short and medium term.


  • Measures adopted to reduce carbon emissions

The Group reduces emissions by continually optimising routes and renewing transport fleet agreements, including efficiency criteria, promoting a gradual increase in the fleet of vehicles that operate with less polluting fuels.

This year, Logesta has also strengthened its combined rail/road intermodal operations, enabling it to reduce CO2 emissions for long-distance goods transport, in line with Logista’s environmental strategy.

99% of the Group’s premises use renewable electricity, including all the Group’s directly managed centres in Spain, France, Italy and Portugal.

In addition, measures taken to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable forms of energy, which are described below in Energy Consumption, also foster the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.


  • Awards

Logista was once again recognised in 2021 as one of the global leaders in combating climate change, having been included in CDP’s prestigious ‘A list’ on the basis of the company’s 2020 climate report.

Logista is the only European distributor, and one of the only two global distributors, to be included in the ‘A List’ for the fifth year running. Only three Spanish companies, and 23 worldwide, have managed to maintain this distinction for five consecutive years.

Logista has also been recognised as a Supplier Engagement Leader by CDP in recognition of its commitment to our suppliers and efforts to reduce emissions across the supply chain.

Every year, Logista sends CDP information about the Group’s management of climate change at corporate level and at individual business level. This information can be viewed on CDP’s website.

99% of the Group’s premises use renewable electricity, including all the Group’s directly managed centres in Spain, France, Italy and Portugal.

  • Emission reduction targets
Global emission reduction target

Logista has developed its own Sustainability Index to identify opportunities for reducing emissions, based on the Science-Based Target (SBT) initiative.

After analysing the existing methodologies, Logista has taken the view that the GEVA method (Greenhouse gas emissions per value-added unit) is the most suitable method for its operations.

Logista has reviewed this methodology and adapted it to include its transport operations within its reduction targets, since it is the most pertinent in terms of emissions within the Group. The proposed unit of reference therefore includes the distances covered.

This indicator shows the Overall Performance of Logista’s emissions because it includes Scope 1 (which includes transport activities with operational control), Scope 2 and Scope 3 (which include all emissions related to transport activities without operational control: upstream and downstream emissions) emissions, as well as emissions from franchise transport.

Logista has considered CDP recommendations concerning year-on-year reduction and included an annual emissions reduction of 2.1%. Logista includes the majority of Scope 3 emissions in this target, and exceeds the percentage recommended by SBT, since 95% of Logista’s emissions are categorised as Scope 3. The result is an Overall Target which accounts for and includes 95.5% of all Logista’s emissions (considering Scopes 1+2+3).

Measures adopted to improve energy efficiency

Logista is implementing several action plans in order to achieve fuel and energy consumption savings, such as: optimising routes, upgrading fleets, adjusting the volume of existing infrastructure, setting local targets and reduction initiatives in our main warehouses, implementing energy efficiency criteria in new and existing premises, etc.

Energy audits are carried out regularly on the Group’s principal processes and warehouses. The results are used to identify and prioritise actions to reduce consumption.

Other actions undertaken by Logista to reduce energy consumption include:

  • LEED/BREEAM certification for all new Group facilities. The Company has established a mandatory internal requirement that all new facilities comply with LEED/BREEAM efficiency standards.
  • The continuous implementation of corporate and local projects (monitoring consumption, lighting replacements, improving insulation, updating equipment, etc.).

Measures adopted to improve renewable energy use

As a Group committed to renewable energy, Logista aims to consume green energy in all its directly managed offices in Spain, France, Italy and Portugal.

In the 2020 financial year, Logista consumed 50,563 MWh, of which 50,185 MWh corresponded to the purchase of renewable energy. In the 2021 financial year, Logista’s electricity consumption fell to 49,912 MWh, with the purchase of renewable energy accounting for 49,476 MWh. This renewable energy consumption entails an estimated saving of 13,746 metric tonnes of CO2e compared with conventional energy consumption, taking into account the different emissions factors in each country.


Measures adopted to ensure sustainable mobility

Logista is part of the national mobility committee set up by Spain’s General Traffic Directorate (DGT) and works on the ‘Autonomous Ready’ project driven by the DGT and Barcelona city hall.

This project aims to lay the foundations for the testing and approval of autonomous vehicles and to define a regulatory framework that guarantees safe and sustainable urban mobility.

Meanwhile, temporary (remote working) and permanent (flexitime, compressed hours) measures introduced by Logista in 2021 are in line with the needs of cities in relation to the staggering of employee travel around times of peak traffic and congestion.

Water consumption

The discharging of wastewater is not considered a relevant aspect at Logista because, due to the Group’s type of operations, this water is sanitary and is discharged into municipal water systems.

Good practices implemented to minimize water consumption include the installation of energy saving devices, consumption monitoring, panels and awareness campaigns, and the certification of all new Group installations under LEED / BREEAM efficiency standards.

In the 2021 financial year, water accounted for 0.006% of the Group’s environmental impact, because it is only used for sanitary purposes (0.015% in 2020).

In the 2021 financial year, 106,744* m3 of the supply network was consumed, in accordance with local limits. In 2020, water consumption from the supply network stood at 104,017 m3 and was in line with the established local limits.

Efficiency measures

Efficiency measures for improving the use of raw materials include the recovery of reusable cardboard boxes through a system involving specific continuous improvement actions.

In addition, the Group’s Environment, Quality and Energy Efficiency Policy includes, among its commitments, the implementation of policies and good practices for the rational use of resources, where the formula underpinning its processes is optimisation.


  • Circular economy, waste prevention and management. The Group has significantly reduced waste and emissions produced by its operations through the use and recovery of reusable cardboard boxes, via a system already implemented at Logista’s centres in Spain, France, Italy and Portugal, and in its specialist express courier service for parcels and documents.

Due to the nature of its operations, the main types of waste currently generated by the Company are paper and cardboard, wood (pallets), municipal waste, plastics and oils.


Hazard classification (Kg)
