LC3 is the first trucking company in the world to receive the “Iway Well Developed Supplier Unit (IWDSU)” title, awarded by Ikea to partners that stand out for their commitment to ethics, safety and the environment. With this prestigious recognition, the Swedish furniture giant has confirmed its willingness to strengthen the partnership with the Gubbio-based logistics company, which uses LNG to power its truck fleet, in the context of an integrated vision of sustainable development.
“Please continue the great work on Iway and we look forward to continuing to collaborate and improve together,” was the message sent by Ikea to the Italian company for having maintained and shared the standards and requirements set in its code of conduct, called Iway, which defines fundamental environmental and social criteria.
“LC3 has always made environmental protection one of its cornerstones, through the use of alternative fuels with low environmental impact and green technologies. Choices we made to help make our planet cleaner every day are proving, as never before, to be fundamental for the economic development of the country and for the relaunch of employment. This recognition makes us particularly proud, because it strengthens an already solid link with a company that, like us, aims to improve livability in a logic of sustainable economy. When you can work together and share the same objectives, you are no longer just a customer and a supplier, but a partner in growth,” said President of LC3 Michele Ambrogi.
Since its inception 10 years ago, LC3 has made the environmental mission its business model. It was the first operator in Italy to choose LNG as a vehicle fuel, actively contributing to a drastic reduction of pollutants and with a strong commitment to transforming road transport. Now the company is ready for the next challenge, biomethane produced from agricultural waste or solid urban waste, which can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 95% compared to diesel.
