Sustainability strategies for leading ocean cargo shippers include targets to dramatically reduce carbon dioxide emissions from their global logistics networks and increasingly, to prioritize working with like-minded supply chain partners.
BSR – a global consultancy with more than 250 international shippers in its network – is advancing this mission.
Its “Clean Cargo Working Group” is an international business-to-business initiative made up of leading cargo carriers and their customers, dedicated to environmental performance improvement in marine container transport through measurement, evaluation, and reporting.
Big brand commitments to integrate environmental criteria into business decision-making is proving the business case for container carriers to join Clean Cargo Working Group, with Zim Integrated Shipping Services, Independent Container Lines and Arkas Container Transport recently joining the membership.
The group is in active dialogue with additional, major global carriers, as well as feeder lines, that are increasingly seeing the business value of collaborating in Clean Cargo.
“The growth curve in membership continues to increase,” says Angie Farrag, Associate Director of Transportation and Logistics at BSR, Clean Cargo’s Secretariat. “This is particularly due to companies such as Electrolux leading the way forward with their recent declaration to only ship with carriers that report environmental performance using the Clean Cargo methodology, starting in 2014.”
