PUTEAUX (FRANCE): Bolloré Logistics launches SEAalternative, an offer to reduce carbon impact of ocean shipments thanks to the use of biofuel, aiming to meet International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations for a 70% reduction in ocean freight CO2e emissions in 2050 compared to 2008.

Previously available through two carriers, the SEAalternative solution is now available on any trade lanes and any carriers for one exceptional shipment or on a contractual basis.

Bolloré Logistics said the solution can guarantee up to an 84% reduction in CO2e emissions compared to conventional shipping, with respect to the physical limit as per Smart Freight Center guidelines.

SEAalternative utilises biofuel derived from used cooking oil, excluding palm oil.

This sustainable solution relies on an end-to-end seamless and verified process. Bolloré Logistics allocates the biofuel environmental attributes to the client’s shipment depending on the need and provides quarterly declaration. Carbon savings are then detailed in client’s CO2e dashboard and audited annually by a third party.

“SEAalternative offer forms part of Bolloré Logistics’ CSR Programme “Powering Sustainable Logistics” launched in 2018, to provide sustainable supply chain solutions to its clients. The new GHG emission reduction targets for Bolloré Logistics, in line with SBTi are to reduce by 22% absolute scope 3 GHG emissions from downstream transportation and distribution by 2030 from a 2022 base year. Thus, Bolloré Logistics encourages its customers to integrate sustainability into the management of their activities,” commented Odile Maarek, Organization, Methods and CSR Director at Bolloré Logistics.
