Dear BPW Partners, Employees and Friends,
the transport and logistics industry is always in motion – but at the same time it needs stability. It needs reliable vehicles and solutions. And it needs innovations, because it is only with new technologies and fresh ideas that stakeholders in the industry can meet the diverse requirements that they face. We have been confronted with entirely new challenges during the coronavirus pandemic. This global crisis has also shown how important sustainability is on all levels of social and economic life. Sustainability thinks in the long term. As a company, BPW has always embraced this way of thinking. Taking responsibility for employees and customers, for training young people and for nature and the environment is part and parcel of what we do. This is demonstrated, among other things, by our membership of the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest and most important initiative for sustainable and responsible corporate governance.
Our latest sustainability report shows how this corporate responsibility manifests itself, what it consists of and how it is constantly developing. Three areas of activity provide the framework: employees and society, product responsibility, and environment and energy.
We are continuously improving the efficiency of our own production and are able to actively save energy, for example through the change of welding processes. We have a consistent green focus for power and now only use eco energy. We develop solutions such as eTransport, our scalable electric drive axle, or ePower, an energy recovery system that enables zero-emission refrigerated transport. These significantly reduce diesel consumption and CO2. Lightweight construction and intelligent trailer running gear also save materials, tyres and fuel – and therefore costs, too. Within all of this, we are always aware that BPW is powered by the people who work for the company. We support them and their health with numerous measures and opportunities. And we never forget the men and women behind the wheel of the trucks. We are involved with campaigns and organisations such as DocStop, #LogistikHilft and the PROFI association (Pro Fahrer-Image e.V.) for their benefit.
We would like to invite you to find out more about our activities and get to know our company a little better in our latest sustainability report.

Environment and Energy
Taking responsibility for future generations is a natural part of the BPW business. That is why the company focuses on protecting the environment and nature in all its activities. For example, BPW has been using power exclusively from carbon-neutral sources since 2017. Efficiency throughout the supply chain is being constantly improved and emissions are being continuously reduced in the company’s fleet. A great amount of energy is saved through state-of-the-art production processes and precious resources such as water are consistently conserved.
