World’s most admired company, CJ Logistics is actively involved in global standard CRS and CSV activities.


Realization eco-friendly logistics at the global TOP level

Efforts to solve various environmental problems such as climate change and biodiversity conservation are also affecting business activities of companies. In particular, as strengthening indirect emission management outside the company becomes an issue, reducing the environmental impact at the logistics and delivery level is required. The transition to eco-friendly logistics is essential as a future growth engine for CJ Logistics. Accordingly, CJ Logistics has selected green logistics as a major issue and is making efforts to respond preemptively.

Environmental management promotion system

CJ Logistics is striving to establish a sustainable environmental management system by carrying out various strategic tasks in consideration of the global logistics business as well as the proactive elimination of potential environmental risks. The construction sector recognizes the environmental impact of construction activities in all sectors of the construction industry, including design, construction, project management, and service, and does its best to manage environmentally friendly projects such as conducting environmental impact assessments and managing pollution factors.
We organize and operate an organization dedicated to environmental management for environmental executives, safety and environmental team of the headquarters, and environmental personnel of each workplace. Through this, we systematically and preemptively integrate and manage environmental issues throughout the company.

Carbon emission reduction activities

Energy efficiency

We provide efficient transportation routes and operation methods by analyzing big data to save energy in terms of logistics and delivery. In addition, we introduced a transport recovery algorithm to shorten the total travel distance and minimize the proportion of vehicles operating in empty vehicles to contribute to fuel efficiency and carbon emission reduction and promote Eco Driving education to improve driving habits that consume excessive energy such as engine idling to carry out energy management activities. In addition, CJ Logistics is promoting various reduction activities, such as installing and replacing indoor lighting in distribution centers with high-efficiency LED lighting devices and installing solar energy generation facilities on the roof of the distribution center to reduce energy consumption in buildings.

Utilization of renewable energy

As the transition to a low-carbon economic system is accelerating worldwide, the use of renewable energy sources is expanding to respond to climate change and reduce environmental footprint. CJ Gemadept, a Vietnamese logistics subsidiary, has installed 10,880 solar modules on the roof of a refrigeration logistics center located in the Mekong Delta on an area of 25,000 square meters. They are producing 7,066MWh of renewable energy per year, aiming to reduce carbon dioxide by 4,840 tons per year by reducing electricity costs by about 25% every year. CJ Logistics will continue to strengthen eco-friendly and renewable energy logistics, and as a global leading logistics company, it will strive to fulfill its social responsibilities and practice sustainable management.

Water and Wastewater Management

Recognizing the seriousness of the water shortage and the importance of resource conservation, we are managing water consumption and wastewater discharge at all business sites by establishing water usage targets and monitoring the performance. Our logistics business sites do not use water other than household water, but in the case of Haesley and Jeju Nine Bridges Golf Clubs, they introduced service facilities, showers, low-flow toilets, and water tank storage compressors that have been certified for water conservation to minimize the use of water resources. In addition, in order to eliminate the discharge of water pollutants that have an impact on the environment, Jeju Nine Bridges is contributing to reduction of water pollution and energy by using a membrane-integrated advanced wastewater treatment method to simultaneously remove organic materials, nitrogen, and phosphorus with low power consumption.

Efforts to Reduce air Pollutants

Logistics company should make efforts to reduce air pollutant due to the cargo vehicles. Ministry of Environment announced that truck emit 6 times fine particulate than passenger cars. Especially old truck that grade 5 in exhaust emission emit 10 ~ 22 times more than recent truck. As a result, public-private partnership become more important to clean air environment. CJ Logistics signed a ‘Business agreement to reduce fine particulate from trucks’ with the Metropolitan Air Environment Agency to reduce fine dust emissions from trucks. Through this agreement, we are working on a low-pollution measures against trucks that we owned by the company or those entering the company regularly such as scrap car removal about old trucks, attachment of emission reduction device and follow-up management. Also, we are actively promoting wheel washing , car washing and eco-friendly driving to reduce scattering dust occurrence against entering vehicles. To reduce these emissions, CJ Logistics will intensively manage aging trucks to minimize the environmental impact of vehicles and reduce fine particulate.

Waste Management

In order to comply with domestic/internal regulations and dispose waste generated at domestic/foreign business sites legally, 'Waste Management Guidelines' are established to properly store, transport, and dispose waste, and is systematically managed through the 'Allbaro System' of the Ministry of Environment. To minimize waste generation, we are developing plans such as optimal design, material purchase, work improvement, management efficiency, and waste reduction. Recently, state-of-the-art systems for logistics packaging prevent over-packaging by commercializing 'Eco-friendly Smart Packaging', reduce plastic and improve resource use efficiency by using paper box tape. We will continue to make efforts to prevent resource depletion and minimize environmental pollution by establishing and spreading an efficient resource management system and to achieve a virtuous cycle of resources.

Introduction of Eco-friendly Packaging

CJ Logistics is focusing on developing packaging technologies and their deployment at business sites in order to address concerns around packaging waste whose volume surged with advances in e-commerce. Accordingly, ice packs and tapes that had been used as packaging sub-materials have been replaced by papers. In particular, ‘Neoforet’, which is paper-based absorber developed to replace vinyl-based absorber, is being used in addition to existing packaging materials like ice packs and tapes that are being replaced by paper materials. Furthermore, eco-friendly smart packaging solution against excessive packaging driven by innovation in packaging technology makes it possible to choose a box that fits product size and bundle unit, precisely measure empty space and fill it with appropriate absorber. By developing packaging technologies and solutions to adopt them, we will keep pushing ourselves to make best use of our resources and keep waste to minimum.

Resource circulation contribution activities

Through collaboration with Ministry of Environment, CJ Logistics contributed to reducing plastic waste by manufacturing recycled empty bottles from high-quality PET bottles. Upon acquiring approval for regulatory sandbox, the Company collected PET bottles discharged from hotels via our delivery service, thereby helping build an ecosystem around resource circulation.
On top of that, the Company signed MOU with LG Chem. On Mar. 2023 on recycling plastics and building circular economy for waste materials in logistics centers. We plan to take the MOU as a platform to manufacture recyclable wrap by collecting stretch film for packaging, which is being disposed in logistics centers, as part of the activities to create resource circulation system.

Participation in plastic reduction campaign

Amid the rapid increase in the use of disposable plastic products in the aftermath of COVID-19, CJ Logistics CEO Kang Sin-Ho is committed to reducing the use of plastics in daily life and implementing the eco-friendly campaign ‘Go! Go! Challenge’ was posted on the official social media with photos and messages to encourage participation in the in-house plastic reduction campaign. In the ‘Go! Go! Challenge’ as a participatory social media campaign that started with the purpose of reducing unnecessary plastic used in daily life, we make a commitment to ‘one thing we need to avoid doing (GO)’ and ‘one thing we should do (GO)’ in our daily lives, and it is conducted in the form of designating the next participant by the participant in order to reduce the use of plastics. As part of CJ Logistics’ ESG management for a sustainable future, CEO Kang Sin-Ho selected ‘Erase the carbon footprint (GO)’ as a thing not to do and ‘Leave a green footprint (GO)’ as a possible action. He expressed his will to more actively carry out and spread the various eco-friendly activities that are being implemented.

Distribution of upcycled uniforms

CJ Logistics distributed 2,000 eco-friendly ‘ECO+ uniforms’ made by recycling waste plastics to field employees. Each eco-friendly uniform produced was made with 14 plastic bottles (500ml), and the total amount of waste plastic used in 2,000 uniforms was 28,000 bottles, which has the effect of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide (1,680kg) absorbed by 560 pine trees in one year. In addition, CJ Logistics has strengthened the storage function by adding a lining to the design of the most demanded vest in the field to enhance thermal insulation and adding a zipper-type pocket and pen holder in consideration of the actual use of the employees. On the front side of the uniform, the safety keeper certification mark and the ‘UN SDGs Association’ mark, symbolizing the ‘Children’s Traffic Safety Campaign’, are included so that the image of ‘delivery that protects the environment and safety’ can be captured. CJ Logistics will lead green logistics by continuously practicing plastic upcycling to contribute to resolving the rapidly increasing problem of plastic waste.

Establishment of plastic reduction and circular logistics system

In July 2021, the Ministry of Environment and the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province Starbucks and other public-private partnerships held a ceremony to create a clean Jeju without a disposable cup. CJ logistics will move the reusable cup collected through the return machine to the cleaning place through the delivery vehicle, and then deliver it to the Starbucks store after washing. We plan to build an eco-friendly logistics system through the introduction of electric cars. We will continue to work with public-private organizations to create synergies in order to create an eco-friendly ecosystem through plastic use and reduction of disposable products based on logistics expertise and infrastructure.

Protection of Ecosystem

CJ Logistics is taking actions to minimize the potential side effects of our business on biodiversity near our business sites by investigating the negative effects. Haesley Nine Bridges and Club Nine Bridges in Resort Business Division are designed and developed in ways that minimizes damage to nature and environment and protect the geographical features as they are. The nature of bent grass planted across the course heavily requires fertilizers but both clubs introduced a system that prevents contamination of surrounding soil and streams by using eco-friendly fertilizers only and recycling them, thereby protecting the environment. Thanks to natural landscaping to the extent it does not damage nature and environment, the golf course is home to eagle-owl, which is an endangered species, and Korean buzzard, kestrel and snakehead fish, which are grade two endangered species hardly found near the course.
Haesley Nine Bridges and Jeju Nine Bridges became the first South Korean golf club to be certified as a sustainable ‘eco-friendly golf club’ by UK’s GEO* in nature, water resources, anti-pollution, energy, supply chain and local communities.
The efforts to preserve the ecological environment of business sites and their surroundings will continue in respect of biodiversity.

GEO(Golf Environment Organization) : The globally-renowned eco-friendly certification organization that certifies eco-friendly golf courses after assessing sustainability and environmental friendliness of golf courses around the world, gives advisory services and operational support to make international golf competitions an eco-friendly one.
