HORIZON TAKES THE PATH TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY



2021-11-22

Horizon Auto Logistics have entered into an agreement with Oak Journey, through its parent company UNI, to build a sustainability strategy. Horizon currently operates in several markets within the Automotive Logistics sector, providing a full suite of supply chain services for finished vehicles from production to the end market. Besides Horizon Auto Logistics, the company further operates under the brands Fast Auto Logistics and Fast Terminal International. Says Per Folkesson, Group CEO of Horizon Auto Logistics: “We have a number of sustainability measures in place at our operating facilities but are driven by creating a more comprehensive and aligned vision. We see sustainability as a range of commitments, not only environmental, but also society and economics which we believe are integral for future generations and we are motivated contributing within this field. It’s a mindset. Within our industry, the focus is logically on a carbon free future, so the EVization we are now seeing is important, but it is not clear to us the environmental impact from the lithium batteries longer term. Nor do we believe the sourcing cycle of components to produce the batteries is fitting particularly well within a sustainability framework. We see hydrogen as a more viable alternative for propulsion, although it requires significant investment in infrastructure to serve the general market. With the assistance and expertise of Oak we will create a roadmap of realistic and impactful sustainability measures, and importantly we will hold ourselves accountable measuring the results.” Says Mauro Castex, CSO of Oak Journey: “A Sustainable Business Model requires a roadmap that reflects the company’s purpose and takes real world experience to include Environmental, Social and Governance - ESG principles into the organization’s strategy and operations. It also takes the commitment of leadership to bring people and technology together to drive meaningful action and value for all stakeholders. OAK Journey’s purpose is to co-create a roadmap with Horizon by putting ESG at the core of its business model, tracking and measuring its performance for building a possible and better future, step by step.” About Horizon Auto Logistics: Horizon Auto Logistics is a global Automotive Logistics Integrator providing a variety of professional value-added services to the Finished Vehicle, Heavy Equipment and Project Cargo Industries.
