IFCO enables the Wiener Tafel’s environmentally friendly transport of frozen food

There are no translations available.

Vienna - New cooling vehicle donationThrough the donation of € 13,000, the logistics service provider IFCO enables the Wiener Tafel to acquire a gas powered frozen-food transport van and provides them with 500 reusable containers for transporting food.

Vienna/Pullach, 14 June 2012 – Together with Ulli Sima, city-councillor for the environment, and TV star Christian Clerici, a prominent Tafel supporter, Heimo Thaler, the managing director of IFCO-Austria, hands over a gas-powered van, capable of refrigerating and delivering frozen food, to the Wiener Tafel. For the first time in its 13-year history, the Wiener Tafel is capable supplying the needy with large amounts of frozen food.

“This acquisition was made possible by a strong sustainable network of cooperation partners and sponsors” said Ulli Schmidt, the managing director of the Wiener Tafel.

Besides IFCO, whose foldable, space-saving reusable containers will be used for environmentally friendly transport in new van, Mercedes Benz and SAP are, among others, supporters of the Wiener Tafel. Other possibilities of cooperation will be initiated within the framework of the WORLDWIDE RESPONSIBILITY project by the POWERGROUP, as is the case in other global projects in support of food banks.

The Wiener Tafel carries the EcoBusinessPlan Vienna certification (click here for EcoBusinessPlan) and supports environmental protection in all areas. In matters of transport and logistics, the use of alternate energy such as natural-gas and the gradual changeover to reusable transport containers play an important role – in comparison to one-way corrugated containers, foldable reusable containers allow an up to 53% reduction of CO2 emissions over the entire transport process.

“I am pleased to find that frozen foods can now also be transported by natural-gas powered vans. As natural-gas powered motors produce no respirable dust, the environment is directly protected and an example is set for the use of alternate sources of energy” said city councilor Ulla Sima, who is responsible for EcoBusinessPlan Vienna. The goals of the Vienna municipality are for both businesses and the environment to make and a receive a ‘clean’ profit through ecologically-sound business management and to secure high quality and financial advantages through the stewardship of environmental protection within companies.
