Photo Special: Aramex reveals first hybrid bike
Middle Eastern logistics company Aramex has revealed its first hybrid Piaggio bike at the 12th Lebanon Motor Show this week. The event, which was held at Beirut International Exhibition and Leisure Centre, attracted 250 exhibitors, with organisers making a prediction of 150,000 visitors over the duration of the show.
Last year, CEO Fadi Ghandour outlined plans for Aramex to become the first carbon-neutral logistics company in the world. Among its targets were a 50 per cent reduction in emissions per shipment by 2009 and a 20 per cent reduction in fuel use. The company also aimed to have two per cent of its revenue from green services by that date. “We think that we should conduct ourselves responsibly in the community we live in, and one of the issues is the environment. Being in the transport industry, which is one of the biggest polluters on earth, it is not an issue we can ignore," he said.
