Go Clean - Go Green

Kuehne + Nagel has adopted the "Go Clean - Go Green" initiative and joined 14 ocean carriers and 12 shippers as member of the "Clean Cargo Working Group" (CCWG). The CCWG carrier members are measuring the actual consumption of bunker fuel and apply a common methodology for calculating and providing their individual trade-lane based CO2 emissions per gram/TEU/km. With numerous theoretical formulas and no globally accepted standard available at this time, the facts and figures delivered by members of the CCWG are the most realistic and, therefore, credible.

We are in the process of incorporating these numbers in carbon calculator and customer emission reports, enabling shippers to obtain reliable information with respect to their seafreight supply chain's carbon footprint. The ultimate objective is for us to assist customers with developing an environmental friendly supply chain model, optimising the routing, carrier and vessel selections and reduce the carbon footprint caused by redundant inland movements for the positioning and re-positioning of equipment.
