Hapag Lloyd announced that it has signed a Carbon and Sustainability Pact with Kuehne + Nagel, aiming to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in their common container-transport activities.

The Carbon and Sustainability Pact that both companies signed, incorporates a 17 percent reduction in CO2 emissions per container moved by Hapag-Lloyd by 2020 compared to 2017.

The agreement between the two companies also allows for potential for additional reductions on selected routes.

Furthermore, Hapag-Lloyd will make it possible for Kuehne + Nagel to use information about the CO2 emissions of the ships in Hapag-Lloyd’s fleet, which has previously been verified by the independent Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG), in its communications with customers.

With the new agreement, both companies commit to a series of additional actions to better protect the environment.

“For example, there are plans to optimize the movement of empty containers as well as to identify alternatives to truck transports using ships or trains. In addition, there are also plans to use the most modern and eco-friendly reefer equipment whenever possible as well as to use containers with steel rather than wooden floors where appropriate,” Hapag-Lloyd said in an announcement.
