Greencarrier and CMA-CGM plan to cut CO2

Greencarrier Freight Service and CMA-CGM Scandinavia have initiated a long-term collaboration project to cut their joint CO2 emissions by 30 per cent by 2020.

The aim is to develop sustainable logistics solutions that will also be made available on the market. One example is a joint solution involving sea transport to Gothenburg and further transport to Torsvik, where trucks have now been replaced by rail transport. This change has resulted in a 70 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions.

On an annual basis, at least two new sustainable logistics solutions will be developed to replace traditional solutions and reduce their environmental impact.

“Greencarrier and CMA-CGM Scandinavia have been working with sustainability questions for many years, and it was thus simple and natural for us to begin collaborating. We also have well-defined long-term climate objectives and this makes it easier to develop good solutions that can be offered directly to the market,” said Peter Nevhagen, CEO of Greencarrier Freight Services International.
