CJ Logistics said Thursday it signed an agreement with organizations dedicated to sustainability, to collaborate on initiatives to reduce plastic and develop more eco-friendly products.  
 
The agreement was signed Wednesday with Art Impact, a social enterprise for sustainable fashion and ethical consumption, and the Korea Association for Supporting the SDGs (sustainable development goals) for the United Nations.  
 
A core objective of the deal will be collaboration with the SDGs committee, in order to meet international standards for plastic waste reduction. The SDGs, which list 17 objectives for progress on the most urgent humanitarian issues, were adopted in 2015 on the 70th anniversary of the United Nations. 
 
In line with its eco-friendly initiatives, CJ Logistics in May signed a deal implementing electric and hydrogen-powered commercial trucks.  
 
“Environmental issues like fine dust pollution and plastic waste have been raised globally, and there are voices calling for absolute environmental protection, which is an intensified version of eco-friendliness,” said a spokesperson for CJ Logistics.
