Hapag-Lloyd AG and DB Schenker have signed an agreement for emission-reduced container transport based on the use of waste- and residue-based biofuel.
The deal follows the launch of Hapag-Lloyd’s ‘Ship Green’ programme in May. This allows customers to avoid emissions with a “Book & Claim” chain of custody whereby Hapag-Lloyd purchases biofuel and adds it to selected vessels’ fuel mix, then allocates this to individual shipments regardless of the vessel and route. The underlying emissions avoidance calculation is based on the emissions-accounting methodology of the Clean Cargo Initative, a standard widely used by carriers, freight forwarders and shippers.
