Maersk and Bestseller to start carbon-neutral ocean transport partnership

AP Moller - Maersk has signed a fully carbon-neutral transport agreement on ocean services with the global fashion and lifestyle group, BESTSELLER.

The open-ended agreement on lifestyle logistics covers all of BESTSELLER's global transportation requirements and includes inland logistics and container freight station (CFS) handling (warehousing).

The Maersk ECO Delivery is a biofuel that is carbon neutral and manufactured from recycled sustainable biomass. It is certified as a sustainable fuel by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) body. The global agreement on ECO Delivery and long-term logistics partnership between Maersk and BESTSELLER will enter effect as of 1 September 2021.

“This is a solution that makes a real difference as ECO Delivery uses sustainable biofuel to power selected Maersk-vessels and helps BESTSELLER make progress towards their ambitious sustainability goals,” said Vincent Clerc, Executive Vice President and CEO Ocean & Logistics, A.P. Moller - Maersk.

BESTSELLER has an ambitious climate strategy with clear reduction targets in line with the Paris agreement with the ultimate goal of becoming climate positive. BESTSELLER has through the Science Based Targets Initiative committed to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions with 50% by 2030, and scope 3 GHG emissions from purchased goods and services and upstream and downstream transportation by 30% over the same timeframe.

“In BESTSELLER, we are continuously exploring ways of improving our environmental footprint and we see the option of leveraging biofuel for our sea transportation as an important course of action,” commented Bestseller's CFO and Head of Logistics, Thomas Børglum-Jensen.
