  • Kuehne + Nagel offers CO2 neutral transports as of 2020

    As a pioneer in the industry, Kuehne + Nagel has also decided to proactively address the CO2 footprint of the transportation services performed by its suppliers – airlines, shipping lines and haulage companies. Kuehne + Nagel targets comprehensive CO2 neutralisation (Scope 3 of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol – GHG) by 2030. As a first step, all less-than-container-load (LCL) shipments will be CO2 neutral from 2020 onwards.

    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 are in accordance with the highest international standards.

    Over the past years, Kuehne + Nagel has considerably reduced its own CO2 footprint and will continue to pursue its efforts. Ongoing training programmes maintain and expand the environmental awareness of employees. For example, video conferencing increasingly replaces business trips. Direct Kuehne + Nagel CO2 emissions (GHG Scope 1 and 2) that cannot be avoided will be fully compensated as of 2020.

    Dr. Detlef Trefzger, Chief Executive Officer of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, comments: “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 to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C.”
