Kuehne + Nagel first to disclose CO2 emissions

Sep 05, 2017

From May 2017, Kuehne + Nagel has shown the total amount of CO2 emissions generated by seafreight shipments on its invoices to help shippers identify their carbon footprint from transport operations. The company claims to be the first in its sector to do this.

“Our goal is to raise visibility and awareness of the environmental impact within the seafreight supply chain,” said Otto Schacht, member of the Management Board Kuehne + Nagel International AG responsible for seafreight. “This will improve decision making with respect to carbon emissions. Due to our global IT operating platform we are able to deliver customised reporting and digital solutions not only in our core business, but also in areas such as sustainability. In order to meet the customer’s own CO2 reduction targets we can assist with moving the cargo, generating the lowest possible carbon footprint.”

The new CO2 disclosure on invoices enhances the existing calculator and is part of Kuehne + Nagel’s evolving carbon management programme
