Lindex switches to biofuels for all ocean freight
Fashion retailer Lindex has announced that all of its ocean freight will be decarbonised when the company now switches to using biofuels.
Almost 90% of Lindex’s goods are transported by boat and the company said the use of a sustainable fuel alternative is an important part of its plan to help lessen the environmental impact of shipping and reduce its climate footprint. To help achieve its goal, Lindex has chosen the DHL Global Forwarding GoGreen Plus service that provides biofuels produced from residual waste from the food and paper industries.
Johan Engen, director of logistics at Lindex, said: “Ocean transport accounts for a significant part of the global CO2 emissions and for us at Lindex, it is important to do what we can to have a positive impact. Switching to biofuels for all our ocean freight, was therefore a natural step for us and in our work to achieve our climate goal – to reduce the CO2 emissions throughout our value chain by 50% by 2030. We are one of the first players to take this step and hope to inspire others to do the same, so that we together can reduce the total climate impact from the world’s ocean transport.”
