A leading player in remote monitoring solutions, Worldsensing has announced a move to further improve the sustainability of its supply chain through a partnership with Spain-based Naeko Logistics.
This will see Worldsensing ship its technology to more than 270 engineering companies and partners in over 60 countries via a provider that, it says, shares the company’s strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials.
Naeko is one of Spain’s foremost logistics providers in terms of ESG performance and is currently seeking B Corporation certification, the highest level of institutional recognition in this field, according to Worldsensing. Naeko’s ESG commitments include investments in renewable energy generation and 100% recyclable packaging.
Worldsensing, meanwhile, says its monitoring technology addresses four of the United Nation’s sustainable development goals, including improvements in affordable and clean energy and building resilient infrastructure.
“Our commitment to society and the environment extends across our supply chain,” Steve Cahill, Worldsensing’s Chief Operating Officer, said. “That’s why we are particularly pleased to have forged this partnership with Naeko.
“Naeko’s investment in social and environmental measures, from sponsoring local sports clubs to migrating to a zero-emissions vehicle fleet, are fully in line with our own ambitions for sustainability and civic responsibility.”
Recent ESG initiatives at Naeko have helped save 250 t of CO2 since 2019 and include a 100 kW solar array for renewable energy at the company’s head office, low-power LED lighting in the company’s Sant Boi warehouse and the replacement of plastic and non-biodegradable packaging with 100% recycled or recyclable materials.
“ESG performance is a critical part of our culture,” Naeko’s CEO, Xavier Roma, said. “We are delighted that this has been a key factor in sealing our partnership with Worldsensing, a company that shares our environmental, social and governance values.
“We are also happy to be working with a company that helps safeguard communities and ecosystems through the improved monitoring of critical infrastructures such as dams and mines.”
Worldsensing, through its Loadsensing industrial monitoring solution, allows mining operators to implement remote data collection and real-time monitoring to reduce time spent on mine readings and improve decision making in critical situations. This includes monitoring tailings storage facilities, among other infrastructure.
