Hellmann and HMM collaborate sea-freight solutions 

Hellmann and HMM collaborate to advance sustainable seafreight solutions 

Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has committed itself to the strategic goal of making logistics of the future more sustainable in all product segments, thereby contributing to the Paris Agreement on climate change. In the field of seafreight, the global player wants to significantly reduce its Scope 3 emissions, demonstrating its dedication to long-term sustainability.

Actively engaging in the movement to decarbonize the container shipping industry, Hellmann is fostering collaboration with customers and carriers to optimize supply chains. This involves jointly developing strategies for carbon emission avoidance and reduction, fortifying its sustainability portfolio, and further enhancing carbon emission reporting as well as emission reduction solutions for its customers. 

Following first initiatives including the compensation of all port-to-port emissions from its global LCL business in 2022 and 2023 along with the introduction of further enhanced carbon emission reporting solutions, Hellmann is now taking its seafreight sustainability ambitions to the next level by forging a strategic partnership with South Korea’s national flagship carrier, HMM, as an official participant in its Green Sailing Service. 

HMM’s carbon insetting solution enables Hellmann to actively reduce its carbon footprint and effectively manage Scope 3 emissions through the use of second generation marine biofuel being bunkered in HMM’s vessel fleet. These Scope 3 emission reductions achieved and specifically allocated to Hellmann are ultimately being made available to its clients, supporting them in reaching their Scope 3 emission reduction targets. Furthermore, the partnership enhances Hellmann’s capability to provide comprehensive end-to-end carbon insetting solutions, including the reduction of emissions from landside transportations, as an integral part of its seafreight services.

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

“As a sector with a substantial impact on global CO2 emissions, we carry a significant responsibility to foster greener logistics. Through our collaboration with HMM and active involvement in the Green Sailing Service, Hellmann is reaffirming its commitment to sustainable practices in the seafreight industry. By providing our clients with insetting solutions, we directly reduce CO2 emissions where they are being produced rather than merely offsetting them. I firmly believe that this approach is the right long-term path forward for the global container shipping industry to make a meaningful impact and to enable our customers to decarbonize their supply chains,” says Jens Wollesen, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Hellmann Worldwide Logistics.
