How Kuehne + Nagel will make all shipments CO2 neutral by 2030

The Net Zero Carbon programme was launched by Kuehne + Nagel in September 2019. The company has set itself two important goals: Firstly, all company sites around the world will no longer leave a CO2 footprint from 2020 onwards.

Secondly, all shipments by suppliers in the Kuehne + Nagel network (airlines, shipping lines and haulage companies) will be CO2 neutralised by 2030. With this programme, we are taking responsibility for the environment whilst at the same time helping our customers achieve their own environmental targets.

Kuehne + Nagel is committing to three areas of action within the Net Zero Carbon programme: visibility, reduction and offsetting of CO2 emissions.

With “Net Zero Carbon” we address CO2 reduction in transport and logistics services worldwide.

In addition to our own CO2 neutrality, we will offer our customers solutions for reducing their supply chain’s CO2 footprint, using big data and predictive analytics, as well as new digital platforms supporting the selection of transport routes and modes that emit substantially less CO2.

Our emissions reduction targets are in line with Science Based Targets, a joint initiative by CDP, the UN Global Compact, the World Resources Institute and WWF.

Net Zero Carbon is our global programme to neutralise our CO2 footprint. Key elements include:

  • Carbon management: Maintain effective carbon management throughout all operations
  • Environmental products & services: Provide environmentally sensitive products to our customers
  • Supplier environmental performance: Environmental criteria to procure and select logistics services
