Another Freight Forwarding and Logistics Outfit Aims for a Carbon Neutral Future
SWITZERLAND - WORLDWIDE - Another freight forwarding and logistics group has made its intentions clear as regards addressing the reduction of CO produced during its day to day activities.
By launching its Net Zero Carbon programme, Kuehne + Nagel says it is actively contributing to the reduction of CO in transport activities around the globe. In addition to the continuous reduction of its own CO emissions, the company now offers its customers solutions for reducing the CO footprint of their supply chain. With the use of big data and new digital platforms, the selection of transport routes and modes can be optimised with greenhouse gas reduction in mind.
Kuehne + Nagel has also decided to proactively address the CO footprint of the transportation services performed by its suppliers, including airlines, shipping lines and haulage companies. The company is targeting comprehensive CO neutralisation (Scope 3 of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol-GHG) by 2030. As a first step, all less-than-container-load (LCL) shipments will be CO neutral from 2020 onwards.
Kuehne + Nagel's Net Zero Carbon programme leverages three fields of action: detection, reduction and compensation of CO. The company has started its own nature projects in Myanmar and New Zealand and has invested in various nature-based CO compensation projects, where carbon is being taken from the atmosphere. The emission credits obtained are in accordance with the highest international standards.
Over the past years, the Schindellegi headquartered group says it has considerably reduced its own CO footprint and will continue to pursue its efforts. Ongoing training programmes maintain and expand the environmental awareness of employees. For example, video conferencing increasingly replaces business trips. Direct Kuehne + Nagel CO emissions (GHG Scope 1 and 2) that cannot be avoided will be fully compensated as of 2020. Dr. Detlef Trefzger, Chief Executive Officer of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, commented:
"As one of the leading logistics companies worldwide, we acknowledge the responsibility we have for the environment, for our ecosystem and essentially for the people. Today's announcement is based on a package of measures to fight CO emissions and provide sustainable and innovative supply chain solutions, hand in hand with our suppliers and customers. We thus support the aim of the Paris agreement to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C."
