Kuehne + Nagel's Net Zero Carbon programme

Schindellegi, Switzerland: Kuehne + Nagel states that all its LCL shipments will be CO2 neutral from 2020 onwards, as a first step towards CO2 neutralisation across all its modes by 2030. This is in line with Scope 3 of COP 19’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

 

With the use of big data and new digital platforms, says K&N, the selection of transport routes and modes can be optimised from a CO2 perspective. The company adds that it has also decided to proactively address the CO2 footprint of the transportation services performed by all its suppliers - airlines, shipping lines and road and rail haulage companies.

 

Kuehne + Nagel’s Net Zero Carbon programme leverages three fields of action: detection, reduction and compensation of CO2. The company has started its own nature projects in Myanmar and New Zealand and has invested in various nature-based CO2 compensation projects, where carbon is being taken from the atmosphere. The emission credits obtained, it says, are in accordance with the highest international standards.

 

Dr Detlef Trefzger, CEO of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, said: "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 CO2 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 [COP 19] to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C."
