Kuehne + Nagel Offers CO2 Neutral Transport in 2020

Kuehne + Nagel has made its first step toward a carbon neutral future. The company has committed to making all less-than-container-load (LCL) shipments CO2 neutral as of 2020.

The decision was made to proactively address the CO2 footprint of the transportation services performed by its suppliers, including airlines, shipping lines and haulage companies. 

Kuehne + Nagel’s Net Zero Carbon program will follow three courses of action: detection, reduction and compensation of carbon dioxide. The company has already started its own nature projects in Myanmar and New Zealand and has invested in various other nature-based CO2 compensation projects 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,” Dr. Detlef Trefzger, Chief Executive Officer of Kuehne + Nagel International AG, said in a press release.
