PARIS/COPENHAGEN: June 24, 2019. Bolloré Logistics and Maersk have agreed to reduce their CO2 emissions by 20 percent per container by 2025.

As part of the collaboration Bolloré Logistics will join the Ship Recycling Transparency Initiative (SRTI) to support Maersk and SRTI on improving ship recycling conditions in the shipping industry.

‘We are looking forward to collaborate with Bolloré Logistics on how to improve sustainability performance as well as reduce CO2 emissions from their ocean transport with Maersk,” said Mads Stensen, Senior Sustainability developer at Maersk. “Collaboration across the supply chain is crucial for us to raise the sustainability bar in the logistics and transport industry.”

Bollore and Maersk sign carbon pactIn a related move, H&M Group has become the first Maersk customer to use a carbon neutral fuel that has been tested and validated by the Dutch Sustainability Growth Coalition and Shell earlier this year.

It is certified as a sustainable fuel by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) body.

“The biofuel trial on board Mette Maersk has proven that decarbonized solutions for shipping can already be utilized today, both technically and operationally,” explained Maersk COO Søren Toft. “While it is not yet an absolutely final solution it is certainly part of the solution and it can serve as a transition solution to reduce CO2 emissions today.”

Taking a full lifecycle view, including emissions from upstream production and transportation, the fuel can reduce CO2 emissions by 85 percent compared to bunker fuel claims Maersk.

“Our high ambition to become climate positive by 2040 requires cooperation and engagement from all parties in the supply chain. We want to use our size to be a force for good and enable scaling innovative solutions, such as the carbon neutral ocean product, for a greener commercial transport,” commented H&M Group COO Helena Helmersson.

“We believe this is the only commercially viable path to make the required investments our industry requires to reach the carbon neutral target. We are so pleased to see a significant shift in sentiment and involvement from customers, fuel suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and competitors towards sustainable solutions,” added Toft.
