The Environmental Impact of Transportation
Strauss invests efforts to minimize the various environmental effects of shipping, which is performed mostly by sub-contractors. Strauss monitors the mix of fuels that are used in the Group’s vehicles.
The chart shows that most of the fuels used in Strauss vehicles are gasoline (95 octane) and diesel, although at some of Strauss’s sites outside of Israel the use of fuels with lower environmental impact (condensed hydrocarbon gas, ethanol and natural gas) has commenced.
The main environmental impact of Strauss’s transportation fleet is air pollutant emissions as a result fuel consumption. The estimate of air pollutant emissions in the transportation fleet is based on accepted knowledge for pollutant emissions from transportation fuels. Most of the pollutants that are common in transportation emissions are NOx and CO gases.
