The growth rate for freight transport is expected to increase by 60 % from 2010 to 2050. While the sector is set to grow at fast and steady pace, it is also facing increasing sustainability issues including social issues caused by insufficient standards for working conditions and safety in road transport.
On 30th of January, CSR Europe organises a workshop with a group of manufacturing and logistics companies to shape a collaborative platform to improve social standards and business practices in road transport logistics.
This workshop aims to:
- Discuss the needs for improving social standards in road transport
- Define the expected outcomes, concept and process of setting and implementing standards
- Create a leadership platform of companies willing to work together to improve social standards
- Agree on first outline of tasks and steps to be undertaken
