Kuehne+Nagel goes CO2 neutral from 2020

Schindellegi, Switzerland: Kuehne+Nagel plans to be CO2 neutral by 2030. As a first step, all less-than-container-load 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,” the company says. “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.”

Detlef Trefzger, chief executive, 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.”
