To reduce emissions from ocean freight, Grundfos uses the GEODIS Sustainable Marine Fuel Insetting programme. Grundfos, founded in 1945, is one of the world’s leading water technology companies, with over 20,000 employees on a mission to deliver solutions to the world’s water and climate challenges.
“Every year, Grundfos ships more than 20,000 containers across the oceans, and it is our ambition to do so in a more sustainable manner,” says Dirk van der Heijden, senior director of global freight.
The use of alternative fuels allows us to decarbonize and reduce our own emissions while also stimulating the freight industry a more sustainable future. The GEODIS Sustainable Fuel Program aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by replacing fossil fuels with alternative and renewable fuels. These discounts are linked to certificates issued to goods owners through a mass-balance setup1. The sustainable marine fuels offered by GEODIS are supplied by the Dutch company GoodShipping, and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% when compared to traditional fossil fuels.
