Wageningen, March 26: On January 19, 2021, Alfa Accountants and Advisors and Greenautomatic started a pilot amongst entrepreneurs in the transport and logistics sector to offer non-financial reports: Environment Social Governance reports, in short ESG reports. Both organizations work on and support the development of a sustainable economy. The pilot is in line with this and gives customers insight into how they can create sustainable value in their own organisation and in society.
Sustainability is a more urgent topic on the agenda for many entrepreneurs. “Most companies and organizations see the need for sustainable entrepreneurship because it influences the continuity perspective of their company. In practice, however, there are several questions. Entrepreneurs are struggling how to integrate sustainable business practices within the organization, ”said Fou-Khan Tsang, Chairman of Alfa’s Board of Directors. Alfa and Greenaumatic want to provide insight through simple but relevant ESG reports and help customers to become more sustainable. Both organizations want to challenge customers to look ahead to a sustainable future.
Sustainability in the transport sector
There is still a lot to be gained in the field of sustainability in the transport sector. Alfa works for more than 350 customers who focus on transport and logistics. It is not surprising that the pilot therefore starts with a select group of transport customers of the organization. The pilot is divided into two phases. “We will enter into discussions with a select number of customers in the first phase of the pilot. We test the reports and ask for targeted feedback ”, says Patrick de Veer, founder of Greenaumatic. Based on this, the ESG reports are further structured technically and the process optimized. In the second phase, we will further expand the group of Alfa customers. “We believe it is important that customers integrate sustainability into their business decisions,” said Tsang. Alfa and Greenaumatic want to seek feedback from customers whether the ESG reports are valuable for them as transport operators. A successful pilot can be the start of offering an integrated service to a wider spectrum of Alfa customers in different industries and sectors.
