Our environmental commitment

We have always regarded it as one of the fundamental tasks for us to be ever thoughtful of environment and conduct eco-friendly business.

Well before entering the 21st century, the century of environment, we started fostering an appropriate working environment with emphasis on the relation between logistic business and natural surroundings in which every single person working within UTL group takes good care of the environment while eliminating waste and pollution, and addresses the issues of resource saving, nature conservation and environmental practice in his or her day-to-day work.

Nowadays, we recognize again that we are living in the era where, with accelerating global warming and worsening air pollution coupled with the rapid changes in geographic demands for resources and energy as background factors, due consideration for the balance between business and environment is called for more than ever. Based on this recognition, we have stepped up its approach to environmental issues and been making comprehensive efforts to promote, on top of individual activities rooted to his or her consciousness as a member of UT Logistics as well as local and global community, an extensive environmental management program, green logistics integral with transportation department and awareness-raising activities through environmental education.
