KWE Launches “KWE Green Consolidation” Service Utilizing SAF
Nov. 14, 2023
Starting in December 2023, Kintetsu World Express, Inc. (Minato-ku, Tokyo) will launch "KWE Green Consolidation" in Japan, a service that will make use of the environmental attributes of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
Since 2021, KWE has been actively participating in the SAF programs of its major partner airlines, harnessing the advantages of SAF to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 3) in its own supply chain. In August of this year, we also submitted a commitment letter to the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) to set group-wide Scope 1 and 2 emission reduction targets and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050- a commitment that has recently been accepted.
As a freight forwarder, setting specific and achievable reduction targets for Scope 3, which accounts for the most significant portion of our greenhouse gas emissions, poses a substantial challenge. It is essential to further promote the use of SAF, which is currently considered the most effective emission reduction method, and we have been exploring the possibility of creating a framework to share the environmental attributes of SAF with customers who use our consolidation service.
As the first step, beginning December 1, 2023, we will offer a service in which we will allocate the attributes of SAF to our consolidated cargo bound for Hong Kong every Tuesday from Kansai International Airport and make it available to customers who wish to use it. This service will contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the supply chains of our customers who are committed to reducing their environmental impact, and we will be able to provide them with third-party verified emission reduction certificates.
For more information on this service, please contact your local KWE sales representative.
Our commitment to decarbonizing international transportation remains strong as we continue our efforts to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
