Transfesa Logistics has signed an agreement to join Forética, the leading organisation in sustainability and corporate social responsibility in Spain.

Transfesa Logistics’ adhesion as a partner is part of the company’s commitment to sustainable development, a fundamental pillar of the company’s strategy and for which it has been awarded by the #PorElClima platform for being one of the 10 best companies for its climate actions in 2022.

With this agreement, the company becomes the first private railway company to join Forética and will continue to develop alliances to help accelerate the modal shift of freight transport from truck to rail in order to decarbonise the transport sector, which is responsible for 27% of global CO2 emissions into the atmosphere in Spain.

Together with them and their network of more than 200 partners, we have access to the latest ESG trends and collaborate in the definition and materialisation of the different roadmaps for the transformation of the economy towards a more conscious one. transformation of the economy towards a more conscious, responsible and circular one, while reinforcing our own strategy in line with the expectations of the market and our main stakeholders”.

In this way, a network is created that works as a meeting point between the different members to promote the integration of social, environmental and good governance aspects in the strategy and management of each company.
