Wärtsilä and CEVA Logistics were recognized for their successful efforts to reduce CO2 emissions by 60% at Wärtsilä's warehousing operations.

The two companies have been named as winners of the Lean & Green Star Award 2013, a program aimed at encouraging businesses and government bodies to move to a higher level of sustainability by taking measures that not only yield cost savings, but at the same time reduce the burden on the environment.

The achievement has been made possible thanks to the combined efforts of CEVA and Wärtsilä. One of the key factors in achieving the emission reductions was the decision to integrate nine local warehouses into one strategically favorable location in Kampen, the Netherlands. The Central Distribution Center in Kampen is the hub of Wärtsilä Global Logistics Services, and covers the entire material flow from order confirmation until the point of delivery at the customer's doorstep.

The award is given by Connekt, a Dutch agency which, in collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, has created the Connekt Sustainable Logistics program. Under this program, companies that are actively dedicated to making their logistics processes more sustainable, are considered for this prestigious honor. In 2008 CEVA won one of the first Lean & Green Awards for its best practice example of a CO2 friendly supply chain redesign for Wärtsilä.
