German toy manufacturer Schleich has announced it is handling its sea freight on a CO2 neutral basis with Kuehne+Nagel, as it offers a complete solution for CO2 neutralisation with it Net Zero Carbon.

Even in the currently volatile market environment, solutions for climate-neutral supply chains remain popular. Schleich GmbH, a German toy manufacturer of realistic animal figures, has decided to neutralise its entire sea freight CO2 footprint with the help of Kuehne+Nagel.

“The decisive factor was Kuehne+Nagel’s Net Zero Carbon programme, which sets new standards with CO2 neutral logistics. We are pleased about this cooperation set on common values for the environment and people,” says Dirk Engehausen, Chief Executive Officer of Schleich GmbH.

As part of its Net Zero Carbon programme, Kuehne+Nagel offers Schleich a complete solution for CO2 neutralisation. By choosing particularly climate-friendly sea freight connections and compensating the remaining emissions with CO2 certificates, the sea freight of the German toy manufacturer is shipped in a climate-neutral way. 

With Net Zero Carbon, the company has also set ambitious climate targets for itself. By the end of 2020 the aim is neutralising the company’s own CO2 emissions (Scopes 1 and 2 of the greenhouse gas protocol); by 2030, this will be extended to all transport by suppliers such as airlines, shipping lines and haulage companies (Scope 3).

Otto Schacht, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel International AG, responsible for Sea Logistics, comments: “Our new partnership with Schleich shows that Kuehne+Nagel has its finger on the pulse with its Net Zero Carbon programme. Our ability to offer Schleich a coordinated package for the CO2 neutral handling of sea freight was decisive. We are pleased to actively support Schleich in their ambitious climate goals.”
