Reduce sea transport emissions by 15% in 2022

We’re taking the lead in global sustainable shipping. By partnering with shipping companies Maersk and CMA CGM Group to use biofuel based on waste oils and LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas), we will reduce our sea transport greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent already in 2022.


Leading the way in sustainable shipping

We’re working toward halving our transport emissions by 2025. A big step on the journey is new partnerships with shipping companies Maersk and CMA CGM Group to use biofuel based on waste oils and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). The result? We will reduce our sea transport greenhouse gas emissions by 15% already in 2022. 

With the new agreements in place, 25% of our total sea freight (80,000 twenty-foot equivalent containers) will be transported using the most effective solutions for decarbonizing available in the market right now. 

   

The agreement with container logistics company Maersk involves using a second-generation biofuel that is a blend of used cooking oil and standard fuel. The biofuel generates 88% less greenhouse gas emissions compared to bunker fuel and is certified as a sustainable fuel by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) body. 

The agreement with shipping and logistics company CMA CGM Group will use CMA CGM’s CLEANER Energy LNG solution based on LNG and guarantee of origin biomethane, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared with bunker fuel. 

It’s not just about reducing our own carbon footprint. We hope to encourage overall market development towards more sustainable practices for shipping goods around the world.
