Our commitments to the planet

Our Moving Green programme

As a player in the food supply industry, our Group is aware of its responsibility towards the planet: for over 20 years, we have been taking action to reduce our environmental impact.  

Our "Moving Green" roadmap was created to accelerate this commitment, focusing on 3 key areas: sustainable mobility, a responsible cold chain and support for all stakeholders.


Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. As a European leader in temperature-controlled food transport and logistics, STEF has a responsibility to actively contribute to the reduction of CO₂ emissions.

Concrete objectives 

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from our vehicles by 30% by 2030

Committing our subcontractors to a more virtuous approach to the environment

Training and raising the awareness of our teams to mobilize them and encourage them to take action for the environment

#1 For sustainable mobility 

It's part of our brand purpose : we're committed to supplying people in a safe and sustainable way.

We are actively participating in the transition to a low-carbon world. 

  • We optimise our transport plans by making loads denser and reducing the distances travelled.
  • We are reducing the emissions and fuel consumption of our vehicles by renewing our fleet and by ​practising eco-driving. 
  • We favour alternative fuels (biodiesel, biogas, etc.) and are testing new technologies.

#2 For a responsible cold chain 

We are taking concrete action to reduce our energy consumption.

  • We systematically carry out energy audits through our energy management system (EMS). 
  • We use artificial intelligence to control our refrigeration facilities.
  • We are deploying photovoltaic panels at our sites, which now enable us to cover 10% of our electricity consumption. 

#3 For our suppliers

We help our partners, and our entire ecosystem, to play their part in the ecological transition.

  • We work with our subcontractor partners to take a more environmentally-friendly approach. We help them to renew their vehicle fleets and incorporate a carbon footprint reduction clause.

#3 For our employees

Our commitment is a collective one. Its success depends on everyone getting involved.

  • Our aim is to make every employee a key player in reducing the carbon footprint in their professional and personal lives.

Our environmental initiatives

To protect people's health and reduce our impact on the environment, STEF has taken numerous steps to improve the performance of our vehicles' engines and refrigeration units, preserve biodiversity and implement reverse logistics approaches.
