According to Maersk, OBE Organic, an Australian organic beef exporting company, has become the first refrigerated meat exporter in Oceania, to vastly lower the ocean emissions of its North America exports. OBE Organic’s entire supply chain is fully certified organic, from buying certified organic cattle from producers, having the cattle processed at modern certified organic abattoirs to selling grass fed organic beef worldwide. The company is taking further steps to reduce its carbon footprint with Maersk’s low emission ECO Delivery product which reduces CO2 emissions by more than 80%.
According to the company, the choice of Maersk ECO Delivery for sea freight to North America provides direct carbon savings rather than carbon offsetting, in line with aims to act upon their sustainability initiative.
“Since its introduction in 2019, customer demand for Maersk ECO Delivery has grown more than 170% year-on-year. Maersk is also working to expand the ECO Delivery product to 3rd party verified low emission landside Logistics & Services products to serve customers across the entire value chain with green solutions.” Said Henrik Jensen, the managing director of Maersk Oceania.
