We’re introducing Ship Green, a new solution for climate-friendly, biofuel-based transport. This solution is accessible from anywhere at any time and does not require a long-term commitment. Ship Green can be added as an additional service to your existing booking, to have an easy and flexible way to reduce your environmental footprint for a more sustainable supply chain.
Here’s how it works. Using Ship Green, you can choose three different options that represent the different levels of the carbon dioxide (CO2e) emissions avoidance: 100%, 50% or 25% of your shipments’ ocean-leg CO2e emissions. Our Ship Green options are available for confirmed shipments on our Online Business Suite.
The emissions avoidance results from the use of biofuel instead of conventional marine fuel oil within our fleet. We guarantee that we use biofuel from 2nd-generation feedstock sourced from certified supply chains and produced from waste material, such as brown grease or used cooking oil – please keep in mind that no edible virgin oils are included in the fuel. The avoided emissions are allocated to shipments with the so-called “book and claim” approach, meaning that we can attribute avoided CO2e emissions to all ocean-leg transports regardless of the vessel and route used. Ship Green is currently available for dry cargo, but it will be expanded to other cargo types in the future.
At the end of every quarter, you will receive an emissions’ avoidance declaration verifying the total emissions prevented through Ship Green. The underlying emissions’ avoidance calculation is based on the renowned emissions-accounting methodology of the Clean Cargo Initiative (CCI).
Join us in our path towards achieving climate neutral fleet operations by 2045!
