  • Juan José Guajardo-Fajardo collected the award on behalf of the company at a ceremony held at El Beatriz, Madrid.

Logista, one of Europe’s largest logistics operators, was honoured in the Sustainability and SDGs category with Actualidad Económica’s 100 Best Ideas award for its innovative initiative to recycle old uniforms.


Logista has collected more than 3.5 tonnes of textile material from its old work uniforms to turn them into blankets that have been woven at various social inclusion workshops. The company thus shows its commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility while supporting social inclusion initiatives.


This project, run alongside Circoolar, is an initiative that combines the circular economy and social commitment, since the blankets produced were donated to the Red Cross for people at risk of social exclusion.


The award was collected by Juan José Guajardo-Fajardo, Logista’s HR, Marketing and Communication Manager, at a ceremony held at El Beatriz Madrid, which brought together the winners of the 100 Best Ideas and was chaired by Rocío Albert López-Ibor, Minister of Finance and the Civil Service of the Region of Madrid.


Juan José Guajardo-Fajardo highlighted during the event that: “This award is a recognition of Logista’s continuous effort to integrate sustainable practices into all our activities. Our uniform recycling project is just one example of how we seek to reduce our environmental impact and contribute to a fairer and more sustainable future
