Green Technology & Sustainability Bulletin 2021


Welcome to CILT's first Green Technology and Sustainability Bulletin. Focusing on the green agenda and considering the role we can play as an Institute has been a focal point of my Presidency. Climate change is a clear and present danger to our planet, and in response we as professionals must change the way we operate. Sustainability and decarbonisation come with many challenges, but also many opportunities. We must work hard to keep our members informed, and make sure we are best placed to meet those challenges and ensure a sustainable future for all.

I am delighted at the response we have received, not only to our Green Series webinar programme, but also to our Call for Research and the request for members in all regions to send their statements in support of the Green campaign. Through our social media channels, we have raised awareness of the green agenda by posting statements from members around world describing why green technology and sustainability issues are important to them and the action they are taking in their countries. 


The bulletin contains contributions from members in over 20 countries on green technology and sustainability issues affecting the logistics and transport sector, and can be seen by clicking here

In this bulletin we share more than 40 articles, papers and recordings, with contributions from members in 20 different CILT countries examining green technology and sustainability issues in relation to the transport and logistics sector. The Bulletin covers a diverse range of industry topics from the greening of bus fleets in Australia to green supply chain management of the sugar industries in Sri Lanka; from empowering green healthcare supply chain practices in Malaysia to nurturing sustainable practices in logistics and transport organisations in Zimbabwe. I urge you to read some of the pieces, and then follow the advice in the article on Sustainability: A Global Challenge for Us All, to 'stop, pause, and reflect on your environmental impact'.

I am proud of the way members from all parts of our global family have joined together in support of this vital campaign. Together we really can make a difference.




Dato’ Ts Abd Radzak Abd Malek
International President, CILT
