• Net Zero Carbon

How Kuehne+Nagel will make
all shipments CO2 neutral by 2030


The Net Zero Carbon programme was launched by Kuehne+Nagel in September 2019. The company has set itself two important goals: Firstly, all company sites around the world will no longer leave a CO2 footprint from 2020 onwards. Secondly, all shipments by suppliers in the Kuehne+Nagel network (airlines, shipping lines and haulage companies) will be CO2 neutralised by 2030. With this programme, we are taking responsibility for the environment whilst at the same time helping our customers achieve their own environmental targets. Kuehne+Nagel is committing to three areas of action within the Net Zero Carbon programme: visibility, reduction and offsetting of CO2 emissions.


Kuehne+Nagel has been consistently committed
to sustainability for over a decade


million CHF – the amount Kuehne+Nagel will invest in the next two years in afforestation.


Kuehne+Nagel's Net Zero Carbon Programme


Transparency about logistics CO2 emissions:
Kuehne+Nagel has developed online solutions that show its customers how much CO2 their shipment produces. Big Data and predictive analytics are used to offer innovative CO2-neutral solutions. The SeaExplorer online portal is the first of its kind to offer seafreight customers transparency on CO2 emissions for every single port-to-port option, regardless of which shipping company is used.



Reducing CO2 hand in hand with our partners:
Kuehne+Nagel is working closely with its suppliers to reduce the CO2 emissions of customer shipments and ensure the sustainability of the entire supply chain. The company has entered into a number of sustainability pacts and supports the development of bio-fuels and synthetic fuels.


Nature-based projects remove CO2 from the atmosphere:
Despite all the efforts to reduce them, it is currently still not possible to cut 100% of CO2 emissions related to shipments. For this reason, Kuehne+Nagel participates in nature-based offsetting projects around the world, which remove CO2 from the atmosphere. These voluntary offsetting measures support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
