The Gauselmann Group has received an award for trialing new transport routes, the company announced this week. On March 8, the Eastern Westphalian company was presented with the “Premio Mejor acción en Medioambiente e Industrialización sostenible” (Best Environmental Action and Sustainable Industrialization Award) in Madrid.

The award was conferred by Infoplay, an information platform for the leisure and entertainment industry in Spain, honoring the group’s commitment to environmental protection. Philipp Obermark, Logistics Manager at the adp Merkur subsidiary, accepted the award at a special ceremony.

Speaking before numerous invited guests, Obermark thanked the jury and the organizers of the award ceremony in his speech. “As a family-run company, the Gauselmann Group feels a particular responsibility towards society, its employees and the environment,” Obermark stated.

“We are constantly looking for ways to make our production and transport operations more efficient and sustainable. We are therefore very pleased to receive this award in recognition of this endeavor, and see this honor as motivation to continue moving forward along our chosen path,” he added. 

The “Premios Infoplay al Juego Responsable y RSC” were presented for the fifth time. This is a charity gala at which awards are presented to both individuals and companies who have distinguished themselves through their special promotion of responsible gaming and through their social responsibility, noted Gauselmann Group.

With the conferring of the sustainability award, the jury has recognized the Gauselmann Group’s commitment to reducing emissions “despite the higher costs, longer transit times and additional planning effort involved,” noted the group.

The topic of sustainability has been an integral part of everyday operating activities across the Gauselmann Group for many years, the german business says. “New sustainable corporate development projects are constantly being implemented in an effort to save resources and protect the environment,” a statement reads.

At the end of last year, the Gauselmann Group decided to trial new modes of transport. During a several-month test phase, Merkur gaming machines were shipped by road from the production site in Lübbecke for onward transport by rail to the company’s central warehouse in Alhama de Murcia in Spain. 

This reduced CO2 consumption by around 55% compared to the Gauselmann Group’s previous method of transport, says the firm.
