Kuehne + Nagel sets new standards in green house emission reporting
In order to provide its customers with reliable CO2 emission data Kuehne + Nagel uses its self-developed state-of-the-art tools Global Facility Carbon Calculator (GFCC) and Global Transport Carbon Calculator (GTCC).For both tools the company has successfully obtained re-certification from Bureau Veritas according to the global ISO standard 14064-3 for all business units and its own subsidiaries. Therefore the correctness of the methodology applied in the emission calculations has been officially certified.
Kuehne + Nagel has implemented a strong environmental policy which is strictly adhered to along the entire supply chain including all modes of transport and interfaces. Transparent and certified standards are integrated in the company’s Quality, Safety & Health, Environment and Security-guidelines.
“Our customers establish sustainability reports and therefore must be able to completely rely on the data they receive from their partners”, says Juerg Meier who is responsible for global QSHE at Kuehne + Nagel. “In this respect, key points are the methodology for the calculation of the green house emissions, the transparency and continuous improvement of this methodology and all reporting standards applied. We have certified all processes on a global scale and therefore provide our customers the foundation for their own sustainability reporting.”
Integrated part of the strategy
Kuehne + Nagel is firmly committed to climate change issues. Therefore the environmental and sustainability policy is an integrated part of the overall strategy. The company’s environmental management system and the environmental performance are constantly being reviewed and optimised. A global team of specially trained staff ensures the correct management and analysis of the data stored in the facility carbon emission data base used by Kuehne + Nagel for the evaluation of direct and indirect emissions.
