Bolloré Logistics China has partnered with start-up Akila to reduce its energy consumption. The three-year agreement is based on the provision of a digital solution that uses artificial intelligence to improve the company’s results in terms of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Akila’s solution will be deployed in the Songjiang (Shanghai) warehouse, with an area of 18,000 m2.
In addition to optimising its energy consumption, the platform will improve air quality throughout the site through accurate monitoring of HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) installations. As part of its “Powering Sustainable Logistics” CSR programme, Bolloré Logistics has set itself the target of cutting its Scope 1 and 2 CO2 emissions by 43% by 2027.
“As a global player in the supply chain, we want to incorporate sustainable solutions into our processes in order to promote the decarbonisation of the logistics sector. Our partnership with Akila will enable us to monitor our environmental impact and reduce it as much as possible,” stated Frédéric Marcerou, CEO of Bolloré Logistics Greater China.
