    Cutting out greenhouse gases

    With ocean freight you already chose the transport mode with the lowest carbon emissions. But even the most sustainable cause sometimes needs some help in accelerating the environmental commitment. That’s why we made an upfront investment in biofuel to make it easy for you to act now. Reach your goals and help to make ocean freight net-zero on a global scale.

    Bring on the benefits with marine biofuel

    • Marine biodiesel is effective in cost and sustainability and builds a bridge to the new eFuels based on renewable energy.

    • Biodiesel is a "drop-in" solution that requires no extensive refitting for CMA vessels.

    • With DB Schenker biofuel solutions you have a proof for your efforts to take action and shape the future.

    • To supply you with an effective and highly stable solution, DB Schenker commits and invests upfront to secure advanced marine biofuel.

    Delivering carbon neutrality by 2040

    We think ocean freight is not just about reaching a port, but also about reaching your sustainability goals along the way. That’s why we are taking concrete steps to become carbon-neutral* by 2040. It all starts with marine biofuel: By replacing fossil fuel with renewable biofuel, we help reduce well-to-wake emissions by 16% annually. And because decarbonizing freight is best achieved through cooperation, we team up with innovators in sustainable technology as well as governmental and private institutions like the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Getting to Zero Coalition and the Arctic Commitment.
