ONE Launches New Eco Shipping Solution

ONE Launches New Eco Shipping Solution

Shipping giant ONE (Ocean Network Express) has announced the launch of a ‘reduced emissions service’ open to customers who wish to proactively manage the emissions associated with their logistics and supply chain operations. 

The new service, entitled ONE LEAF+ (which stands for Low Emission-Able Freight), purports to offer customers a series of benefits. These include: 

  • Reduced carbon footprint - this will be achieved by ONE using regulation-compliant alternative fuels on designated vessels. This will allow customers to reduce their Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions directly.
  • Additional transparency - customers will receive certification that quantifies the CO2e savings achieved by their shipment with ONE LEAF+. These CO2e savings will be independently verified by a third-party.
  • Enhanced partnerships - ONE has stated that it will be working with several partners to initiate and implement new sustainability initiatives. 

To achieve its reduced carbon footprint, ONE has stated that it will be using a regulation-compliant biofuel. This is Used Cooking Oil Methyl Ester (UCOME) feedstock, which according to ONE, ‘generates about 84% less well-to-wake CO2e emissions considering B100 compared to Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO)’. 

ONE has also highlighted that UCOME is a ‘second-generation biofuel made from used cooking oil which meets the EU RED definition of waste or residue. UCOME is a type of Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME), which follows more stringent criteria’. 

To provide even more reassurance to potential customers, ONE has ensured that its processes and methodologies for ONE LEAF+ voyages have been certified by third-party verification body, ClassNK. ClassNK is widely regarded as a leading authority on the book-and-claim process for carbon emissions savings in the transportation sector. 

Further, ONE has stated that all certificates issued with the ONE LEAF+ service will be in-line with the following international standards; ISO 14064-3:2019 (Specification with guidance for the verification and validation of greenhouse gas statements), and ISO 14067:2018 (Greenhouse gases carbon footprint of products).

Commenting on the launch of the new service, Gilberto Santos, Senior Vice President, Global Commercial Service Management at ONE, said: 

“At ONE, we are fully committed to our target in achieving net-zero GHG emissions by 2050. The launch of ONE LEAF+ underscores our commitment to sustainability and provides our customers with the tools and transparency they need to make informed choices about their Scope 3 GHG emissions”.

ONE is currently working towards achieving net-zero by 2050 (including both Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions).
