How long have you been a customer of RCG?
Lenzing AG has been a customer of RCG since it was founded.
What do you appreciate about working with RCG?
We particularly value RCG’s professional approach. If we need support, RCG is always on hand to take care of our concerns and transport requirements.
What was the best experience you have had with RCG?
In 2019, there was a rail strike in France. Despite this challenge, RCG quickly moved our shipments of CS2 over to intermodal transport. This meant that our day-to-day operations were not affected by the strike. We very much appreciated this solution-driven approach.
What made you decide to use rail transport?
There are two main reasons why we prefer rail transport. Firstly, because it is simply the most efficient option for us when transporting large quantities of goods. Secondly, it is a question of the ecological footprint. We would like to shift even more shipments over to rail so we can do even more to tackle climate-change and environmental issues.
What does sustainability mean to you?
Adopting a long-term, forward-looking approach in the way we think and conduct our business operations, so that the company can continue to operate successfully in the market in the long term. The subject of sustainability is clearly anchored in the strategy of the Lenzing Group. Sustainability is the driving force for our development department. As a raw materials producer, we are at the beginning of the textile value chain, which is currently facing some critical challenges. We have developed the key focus areas of our sustainability strategy from the results of a materiality analysis. Based on the three dimensions “people – planet – profit”, we have defined seven core areas as part of our sustainability strategy in which the Lenzing Group is making a significant contribution and helping to bring about positive change. These cover sustainable procurement, the responsible use of raw materials, decarbonisation, sustainable innovation, a clear commitment to the value of partnerships for systemic change, and enhancing social and personal well-being.
What does rail travel mean to you?
For us, rail travel means reducing the impact on the environment, promoting responsibly planned travel services, and being able to transport large goods from A to B.
