This year, ALS has chosen to invest in 600 tonnes of Certified Emission Reduction units (CERs). By a comfortable margin this investment exceeds the Nordic region’s calculated, yearly emissions from transports of samples, both from clients and between our laboratories. But we want to do more:
Our ambition is to make actual emission reductions and are therefore proud to announce the investment in six electrified cars with an expected delivery in the spring of 2021. With the new cars, ALS will electrify a big part of our logistics network for sampling pickups as well as transports between our laboratories in Stockholm, Oslo and Humlebæk.
The cars we have invested in are Volkswagen ID.3 and ID.4 that are manufactured in a sustainable manner. In the manufacturing of model ID.3, 100 % renewable energy is used in the production of battery cells and also at the plant where both models are produced. Unavoidable emissions is compensated by climate protection projects. You can read more here (external link).
Through our investment in CERs, we feel confident this will have guaranteed positive climate effects. You can read more about the project we have invested in here (external link)
ALS wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
