Green Worldwide Shipping, a leader in global logistics and supply chain management, is proud to join the Smart Freight Centre (SFC), an advocate for sustainable practices in the freight transportation industry. Supply chain decarbonization is critical to combat the impacts of climate change, and Green’s participation in the SFC community will allow Green to accelerate its greenhouse gas emission reduction goals and offer sustainable solutions to its customers.

SUPPORTING SMART FREIGHT CENTRE PROGRAMS

This strategic alliance marks Green Worldwide Shipping’s dedicated involvement in three programs led by the Smart Freight Centre — Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC), Clean Cargo, and Clean Air Transport.

The Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) program, a cornerstone of Green Worldwide Shipping’s commitment to sustainability, provides comprehensive methods and guidance for the decarbonization of logistics. By actively participating in GLEC, Green Worldwide Shipping aims to implement cutting-edge strategies that reduce carbon emissions across its global logistics network.

Clean Cargo focuses on decarbonizing marine transportation. As a participant in the Clean Cargo program, Green Worldwide Shipping is dedicated to advancing low-carbon practices within its maritime operations, contributing to the reduction of the carbon footprint associated with marine freight. This complements Green’s industry-leading participation in the Zero-Emission Maritime Buyers’ Alliance (ZEMBA).

Green is also actively engaged in the Clean Air Transport program, an ambitious effort to decarbonize air freight. Recognizing the unique challenges and opportunities in air transportation, Green seeks to pioneer sustainable solutions that address the environmental impact of air freight logistics.

“At Green Worldwide Shipping, our commitment to sustainable, responsible logistics guides our strategy and actions. Joining forces with the Smart Freight Centre and actively participating in the GLEC, Clean Cargo, and Clean Air Transport programs will let us drive positive change in the logistics industry,” states Anne Shudy Palmer, Director of Sustainability at Green Worldwide Shipping.

The Smart Freight Centre collaboration reinforces Green’s role as an industry leader committed to advancing sustainable solutions, reducing carbon emissions, and fostering environmental stewardship within the logistics sector.
