Message from the Executive Management Board

Dear Readers,

It is an honour to introduce you to our Sustainability Report for the year 2023 and share our progress, initiatives and commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.

In my first year at Kuehne+Nagel, I have experienced firsthand the dedication and commitment of our employees to sustainability. 

We are proud that Living ESG is an integral part of our Roadmap 2026 strategy. It encapsulates our commitment to ESG and guides our actions to support a sustainable future.

In 2023, we have proven our commitment to environmental aspects, such as investing in renewable electricity or the deployment of biofuels to reduce emissions. We also turned our attention to the social dimensions of Living ESG. We achieved high participation in our company-wide employee engagement surveys and developed a robust social framework to positively impact society and the environment. 

On top, we strengthened our sustainability governance to ensure we have an aligned approach across the organisation to deliver the best outcomes for employees, customers, and partners.

Moving forward, we will continue to focus on reducing emissions along the value chain and providing our partners with actionable insights based on emission data. Simultaneously, we will continue to carefully listen to our customers and employees as we strive to create an extraordinary experience. 

With this report, I invite you to explore how we have integrated ESG principles into our business practices and learn about our progress and achievements.

I hope you will join us on this journey to support a sustainable future!
