Electrolux will use more sustainable fuels for 25% of its total sea freight, by partnering with Maersk and CMA CGM to use biofuel based on waste oils and LNG, aiming to reduce its sea transport greenhouse gas emissions by 15% in 2022.
Electrolux wants to halve its transport emissions by 2025, and to reach this target two agreements have been signed with Maersk and CMA CGM. With the new agreements 25% of Electrolux Group’s total sea freight will be transported using the solutions for decarbonizing.
80,000 TEU will be transported by using Maersk’s biofuel, which is based on certified waste oils such as used cooking oil, and CMA CGM’s solution based on LNG and guarantee of origin biomethane.
The agreement container logistics company Maersk involves using a second-generation biofuel that is a blend of used cooking oil and standard fuel.
To ensure significant emissions reductions in this decade and to help our customers decarbonize their supply chains, we are offering the most sustainable product available in the market right now
said Kim Pedersen, Head of Sales & Marketing, Maersk.
The agreement with shipping and logistics company CMA CGM Group will use CMA CGM’s CLEANER Energy LNG solution based on LNG and guarantee of origin biomethane, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25% compared with bunker fuel.
Finally, Vanessa Butani, Electrolux VP Sustainability, stated that by promoting more sustainable shipping practices, the company demonstrates its dedication about reducing its carbon footprint and working together across industries to drive the market for low-emission fuels.
