Packaging, paper, and resource recovery giant Visy has opted to use Maersk’s ECO Delivery product in Oceania.
The company aims to cut emissions through efficiency and investment in renewables and clean energy, reduce waste to landfill, and through efficient use of water. It also looks to reduce its carbon footprint in transportation.
“We have been a pioneer in sustainability since our inception, as this sits at the centre of our operating model,” said Sean Richards, Executive General of Visy Global Logistics.
“Using Maersk ECO Delivery in our shipping transport will lead to a more sustainable supply chain and help us actively minimize the impact on the environment.”
Maersk’s ECO Delivery product was initially launched in 2019 and is an Ocean transport offering that makes use of green biofuels, reducing CO2 emissions by more than 80 per cent.
Lee Sissons, Regional Head of Ocean Management for Maersk Asia Pacific, added: “We are pleased to partner with Visy to work towards a more sustainable future.
“ECO Delivery is the most sustainable ocean product available today, and we have seen the customer demand for sustainable transport drives exponential growth, and we expect more customers to opt for this solution. The cooperation with Visy is a great step forward in decarbonising shipping operations in Oceania.”
