HMM, Hellmann develop green transport solution

HMM, Hellmann collaborate on Green Sailing Service

HMM has assisted Hellmann Worldwide Logistics (Hellmann) in reducing carbon emissions by implementing the Green Sailing Service, an eco-friendly transportation solution.

The Green Sailing Service is a carbon insetting platform that enables customers to lower their carbon footprint proactively and address Scope 3 emissions effectively. The methodology for this service is advised by PwC Korea. 

Carbon Insetting directly reduces carbon emissions in the sector where they are emitted during their business activities, whereas Carbon Offsetting works by purchasing certificates or funding a carbon reduction project outside the business realm.

For the Green Sailing Service, HMM has used second-generation marine biofuel, consisting of 30 per cent biodiesel derived from non-food biomass (Used cooking oil methyl ester (UCOME)) and 70 per cent high-sulfur fuel oil (HSFO). The amount of CO2 saved using marine biofuel was allocated to Hellmann for the Scope 3 emission reduction during maritime transport.

HMM currently uses biofuels on its designated vessels to generate less carbon emissions on a lifecycle basis (Well to Wake). Other alternative fuels, including LNG and methanol, are expected to be available in the latter half of the year or early next year.

In addition, the carrier will issue a ‘Green Sailing Service Declaration’ that contains the amount of carbon reduction and alternative fuels used based on relevant documents. Third-party certification will also be provided in the near term.

“We are delighted to experience one of the finest examples of successful cooperation between industries making meaningful progress toward a net-zero future,” said Shin Kim, Chief Container Business Officer (CCO) of HMM. 

“Together with Hellmann, we will continue to develop mutually beneficial relationships and, at the same time, welcome anyone with whom we can share the ambitions for environmental initiatives and find a way to go green.”

“As a sector with a substantial impact on global CO2 emissions, we carry a significant responsibility to foster greener logistics,” said Jens Wollesen, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.

“Through our collaboration with HMM and active involvement in the Green Sailing Service programme, Hellmann is reaffirming its commitment to sustainable practices in the sea freight industry.”

Just recently, HMM was recognised for its sustainable practices and corporate transparency on climate change by the international environmental non-profit CDP, securing an A- score.
