In the pursuit of Scope 3 emissions management, South Korea’s HMM has supported German-based Hellmann Worldwide Logistics in diminishing its carbon footprint through the adoption of the Green Sailing Service – a sustainable transportation solution.

This platform, introduced by HMM, serves as a carbon insetting initiative, empowering customers to actively reduce their environmental impact and efficiently tackle Scope 3 emissions.

“We are delighted to experience one of the finest examples of successful cooperation between industries making meaningful progress toward a net-zero future. Together with Hellmann, we will continue to develop mutually beneficial relationships and, at the same time, welcome anyone with whom we can share the ambitions for environmental initiatives and find a way to go green,” says Shin Kim, Chief Container Business Officer (CCO) of HMM.

“As a sector with a substantial impact on global CO2 emissions, we carry a significant responsibility to foster greener logistics. Through our collaboration with HMM and active involvement in the Green Sailing Service program, Hellmann is reaffirming its commitment to sustainable practices in the sea freight industry. By providing our clients with insetting solutions, we directly reduce CO2 emissions where they are being produced rather than merely offsetting them. I firmly believe that this approach is the path forward for the global container shipping industry to make a meaningful impact and to enable our customers to decarbonize their supply chains,” says Jens Wollesen, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.

Scope 3 emissions arise from actions involving assets beyond the ownership or control of the reporting entity, yet are influenced indirectly by the organization within its value chain.
