Our sector of expertise plays a crucial role in solving the emission reduction challenges on a global scale. We are committed to minimising our own as well as our customers carbon footprint and contribute with transport solutions and technology supporting this goal

We have a responsibility to help tackle the global climate crisis: as a business and through logistics offerings to our customers. We are committed to contribute to solving the emissions reduction challenges on a global scale, to unlock decarbonisation and to drive real and needed change.

However, the decarbonisation of shipping – a hard-to-abate sector - cannot be solved by one company alone. We need to collaborate with various players in the shipping, transport and logistics ecosystem and with other sectors as well.

Lasting progress on our journey to go greener means that the logistics solutions we offer need to become far more sustainable.

However, not all the technological solutions needed for the decarbonisation of our sector are available today. Tackling the direct and indirect emissions from our line of service is therefore a major challenge. Through partnerships and collaboration with industry experts it is our ambition to continuously implement ways to provide customers with superior and lower carbon logistics solutions.

Measuring and communicating our carbon footprint

Reducing our own carbon footprint is a journey beginning with understanding, measuring and reporting our CO2 emissions through our whole supply chain. During the last few years, we have been working intensively on our carbon accounting and the standardisation of our data collection protocols. Our goal is to get a thorough understanding of our baseline and the scenarios for our future emissions. Based on this, we will formulate an emissions reduction target and initiate actions to minimise our carbon footprint. The journey has already begun.

Along the way, we are aiming to continuously increase the accuracy of our carbon data, so that we can better make informed decisions based on facts that can guide our emissions reduction initiatives and help us monitor our performance against our objectives.

Communicating our carbon impact

We believe that transparency about carbon impact can accelerate progress in decarbonisation regardless of sector or industry. Also, it is imperative for us to give our stakeholders the information they need to make sustainable choices.

Every year, we communicate our carbon accounting, our targets and our achievements in becoming a greener transport and logistics company. Communication on progress is showcased in our annual Sustainability Report.

Greener reefer logistics at Padborg terminal


At Blue Water, we are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact. In Padborg, Denmark, we have switched from using diesel to electricity to cool down reefer trailers, in line with our mission to have a more sustainable presence in the transport and logistics sector.

"As a leading player, we recognise our central role in addressing the challenge of reducing emissions. We are proud to have made this sustainable change in Padborg," says Rene Busekist Ohlsen, Blue Water's Director Reefer Road. 

Transport service ensures less CO2 emission


CargoNet, Nor-log and Blue Water have created a solution shortening the time of delivery and reducing the CO2 emission during transport.

The rail solution reduces the number of trucks on the Norwegian road by approx. 4,000 units per year, and at the same time the reliability of delivery is higher, as the rail tracks are not affected by congestion on the roads. These benefits are important to Nor-log who specialises in high-quality reefer transport of food stuffs from Norway.
