Committed to 100% carbon neutrality

Achieving carbon-neutral global less-than-container-load (LCL) services within a decade is part of the Rhenus strategy to spearhead the industry’s transition to sustainable logistics.

The Rhenus Group, a global logistics service provider, will neutralise the carbon emissions of all of its LCL products by 2030. Starting from 2022, cargo shipped with the Rhenus Consolidation Box out of Germany’s Hilden Gateway will be carbon neutral, with no additional costs to customers. The service will progressively roll out through all gateways in which Rhenus operates worldwide.

“We are not only striving to make logistics simple for our customers, but also doing our part to support the environment, such as investing in sustainability projects,” says Jan Harnisch, global chief operating officer at Rhenus Air & Ocean.

With green thinking firmly established throughout Rhenus operations, the carbon-neutral LCL product marks a new milestone in its sustainability strategy. The Rhenus Group launched the world’s first CO2 reduction programme for airfreight – Rhegreen – in 2019. Since 2015, Rhenus has undergone an annual assessment by EcoVadis, an independent agency that evaluates corporate social responsibility-related activities in accordance with international standards. For several years running Rhenus has received the Silver Status for this assessment.

Ongoing green logistics efforts worldwide include a seven-year continuous annual tree-planting activity in India; climate-neutral warehouse locations with green infrastructure like renewable energy and LED lighting, as well as electric mobility and recyclable packaging; energy management system implementation across Germany and the Netherlands; and a Rhenus Group corporate forest to support agroforestry projects.
