Environmental impact

Your organisation alone is responsible for your company’s profit. The environment is our shared responsibility! Each one of us is responsible for actively participating in the global environmental changes we want to see. The UNI-TROLL solution is designed for a greener future and is our contribution to a sustainable supply chain.

UNI-TROLL has taken note of the vision of COP 21 and carefully studied the World Economic Forum’s alarming report on plastic: it estimates that around 269,000 tonnes of plastic are floating in the world’s oceans. There is clearly an urgent need for practical and down-to-earth tools for decision makers worldwide in order to help reduce the consumption of resources in a world that is expected to have nine billion inhabitants by 2050. One such tool is the UNI-TROLL trolley system.

 

We proudly support five important goals

In 2015, the UN adopted a common plan for sustainable development, peace and prosperity for humanity and the environment, now and in the future. The plan is supported by 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which state that ending poverty and exploitation must go hand in hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality and stimulate economic growth – while addressing climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.

 UNI-TROLL’s strategy specifically supports 5 sub-goals in the plan, described by the UN as:

  • SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 8
    Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
  • SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 9
    Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster inno-vation.
  • SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 12
    Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
  • SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 13
    Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
  • SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 17
    Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

A vision of global sustainable supply chains 

The UNI-TROLL concept is based on a vision of sustainable supply chains and a circular economy, and is an effective tool for reducing environmental impact. Why not share the distribution and warehouse tools that keep the wheels of international production and trade rolling? When you do not need your UNI-TROLL trolleys, they are in principle available to others who have the same needs but a slightly different logistics pattern. You’ll save a lot of resources on one-way packaging, your environmental impact will be reduced, your costs will be adapted to your actual needs, and as co-owner of a pool, you will have the opportunity to earn money on your trolleys in your own off-season. We believe this model makes a lot of sense, and this is the vision behind UNI-TROLL’s pool concept.
