Green and Sustainable Warehouses

Green and Sustainable Warehouses
  • Construction materials. The use of sustainable construction materials contributes to a lowering of the ecological footprint of warehouses. Using non-toxic paints, high-value insulation, installing skylights or natural light access points lead to a more efficient building;
  • Energy efficiency. Solar panels and stormwater management systems improve energy efficiency and self-sufficiency. Other improvements include the use of light-colored materials and natural native landscaping. High-efficiency climate control systems can help to manage building temperature and airflow for reduced heating and cooling expenditure. The use of solar panels is once again a major impact factor here.
  • Equipment. Using electric-powered lift trucks and stacking cranes instead of internal combustion engines, the total emissions of the storage area go down. The utilization of synthetic pallets, advanced designs in trucking.
  • Operations. Improved inventory and transport Management systems have a major impact on the sustainability of warehousing operations.
