Agility has joined Maersk Line’s Carbon Pact initiative – pledging to cut C02 emissions by 15 per cent on containers transported by 2020.
The two will explore ways to cut emissions by transporting cargo on more fuel efficient ships, optimising shipping networks and routes, investigating how to integrate CO2 emission indicators into the regular business information flow and procurement of ocean shipping.
“Responsible companies are looking for innovative, commercially viable ways to reduce the impact of their business on the environment,” said Cas Pouderoyen, Agility senior vice president for Global Ocean Freight. “In Maersk, we have one of the most creative and committed partners in the shipping industry. Our Carbon Pact partnership with them will benefit Agility customers and the planet.”
