Intermodal Global Logistics (IGL) has joined the “No Plàstic” environmental campaign. The aim is to replace plastic with recyclable materials, promote awareness of the problems generated by the abusive use of this material and its derivatives, as well as working to avoid the culture of using this component.

Since last June, the company, which is part of Alonso Group, is gradually removing all plastic bottles and glasses to replace them with other materials, such as steel or glass. Free water has also been distributed to all employees.

Annual reduction

The initiative encourages each company to indicate the approximate number of plastic units it believes it can reduce in a year, and then establish measures to achieve this. In other cases it is also possible to choose to recycle it properly.

Some companies have replaced plastic cups with personalised glass jars or glasses for each member of their team to reach the figure of one million fewer bottles.

Pioneering initiative

This environmental campaign has been coordinated by the Centro Portuario de Empleo de Valencia, Ecoport and Aportem-Puerto Solidario de Valencia. To date, up to 24 companies and associations from the port community have joined. This is a pioneering initiative in the ports of Spain.

IGL is a logistic operator of reference in the national and international scope. It has more than 10 years of experience in international trade and integral logistics.
