Working Towards Decar­bo­niza­ti­on and Redu­ced Green House Gases

You might have read about one or more of Samskip’s latest sustainability initiatives during the last months. From new generation zero emissions container vessels to Carbon Capture Utilization Systems, we continue to push the limits of sustainable practices as we invest both in the future of our organization as well as the future for the maritime industry as we reduce our carbon footprint.

In our con­ti­nuous efforts to decar­bo­ni­ze our acti­vi­ties and sup­port the indus­try, one of Samskip’s actions was to beco­me a mem­ber of Smart Freight Cent­re. SFC is an inter­na­tio­nal non-profit orga­niza­ti­on focu­sed on redu­cing green­house gas emis­si­on from freight trans­por­ta­ti­on and gui­des the logi­stics indus­try to track and redu­ce its Green­house Gases (GHG) emissions.

 We joi­n­ed SFC for a cou­ple of reasons. First, to share our ope­ra­tio­nal data in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with our indus­try peers. The con­so­li­da­ted data is then aggre­ga­ted to pro­vi­de an over­view to mea­su­re the over­all car­bon foot­print along with the impact for each sai­ling rou­te. This infor­ma­ti­on is then used to crea­te a car­bon foot­print frame­work that is fur­ther shared with rele­vant stake­hol­ders. To achie­ve this, we have also joi­n­ed the Clean Car­go Pro­gram led by the Smart Freight Centre.

Working with the SFC also gives us the abili­ty to work with their GLEC Pro­gram (Glo­bal Logi­stics Emis­si­on Coun­cil). As spe­cia­lists in mul­ti­mo­dal logi­stics, being part of the GLEC Pro­gram will sup­port us in cove­ring all the moda­li­ties we uti­li­ze for fle­xi­ble and sus­tainable logistics.

We feel it is our respon­si­bi­li­ty to share our data and col­la­bo­ra­te clo­se­ly with our indus­try peers towards the decar­bo­niza­ti­on in logistics.

Pedro Vas­con­cel­los, Samskip Head of Sus­taina­bi­li­ty, “The work we plan to do with Smart Freight Cen­ter is an intri­ca­te part of our con­tin­ued efforts towards more sus­tainable prac­ti­ces. Our col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve work will sup­port our tar­get of rea­ching Net-Zero by 2040.“
