the world's first CO2 reduction program in airfreight
Corporate social responsibility is important, especially in view of future generations. With RHEGREEN, Rhenus shows how it takes sustainability seriously. The CO2 reduction program is an initiative that Rhenus Air & Ocean has developed for airfreight shipments. You now have the opportunity to choose the most environmentally friendly option for the transport of your airfreight to a certain destination at no extra cost.
RHEGREEN is a completely new airfreight service developed by Rhenus Air & Ocean. The service is also the world's first CO2 reduction program for airfreight. RHEGREEN gives you the opportunity to choose the most efficient aircraft from a sustainability point of view. Not only can you reduce emissions but you can also communicate this to your stakeholders within the framework of your CSR policy.
RHEGREEN calculates CO2 emissions per route
RHEGREEN is a calculation method based on available types of equipment, fuel consumption and distances to be covered. In short: RHEGREEN calculates which aircraft is most efficient in terms of CO2 emissions per route. An external party has validated the transparency and independency of the calculation method. This validation confirmed that by making the greenest choice, a CO2 reduction of 10 to 40 percent per shipment can be achieved.
Available from and to more and more airports
RHEGREEN is offered on flights from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport to seven destinations: Chicago, Mexico City, Mumbai, Shanghai, Singapore, San Francisco and Hong Kong. Soon, RHEGREEN will expand to more destinations and rolled out worldwide within the Rhenus network, which will make it possible to book this service from other airports as well.
Combine modalities and sustainability
Within Rhenus Air & Ocean we offer various services, from oceanfreight to airfreight. Both services benefit from the worldwide Rhenus network. Ultimately, you decide which logistics service you want to choose and a wide choice is important. RHEGREEN now offers you - in addition to speed, price and reliability - this new sustainability choice.
