Geodis offers sustainable fuels for air and sea transports

The logistics company Geodis is now offering sustainable fuel solutions for sea and air transport worldwide to contribute to the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

Sustainable marine and aviation fuels are derived from non-fossil sources while they are produced by food and agricultural waste and mainly cooking oil.

Moreover, their use helps the reduction of at least 80% for air and 90% for sea transport in CO2 emissions over the cycle from production to fuel consumption, along with a reduction in other pollutants.

"With these new solutions for air and sea freight, we offer our customers an additional way to decarbonise their entire supply chain," said Chief Executive Officer of Geodis, Marie-Christine Lombard.

These alternative fuel sources are classified as 'insetting' or 'integrated carbon reduction’ because they occur within the means of transport's own value chain, unlike conventional carbon offsettings, such as solar panels, wind turbines and tree plantations, which are not involved directly in the operational sphere, according to a statement.

"Biofuels are currently the most effective way to significantly reduce the environmental footprint of transport activities," noted Philippe de Carné, GEODIS Executive Vice President Business Development, CSR & Innovation.
