New solutions are necessary if we as an industry, and as a global community, want to create faster change towards a more sustainable future
We believe that the best way to develop new solutions is by collaborating with others, which is why we are engaged in a number of partnerships.
When we engage in partnerships with other companies and political institutions to share resources and ideas for sustainable solutions, we not only benefit from a larger pool of capabilities, we also ensure greater buy-in when the time comes to implement those solutions.
We have partnered with Ørsted, GreenHydrogen, Energinet, Nel and Everfuel to investigate how energy production from offshore wind can be used to produce renewable hydrogen. That hydrogen is then to be used as fuel for zero-emission fuel cell based commercial heavy-duty transport.
The project aims to be the world’s first integrated offshore wind and electrolyser setup to produce renewable hydrogen and thereby decarbonise heavy-duty transportation through intelligent sector-coupling. DSV's role is to assess the suitability of hydrogen fuel cell trucks for commercial use and to test it in our own supply chain.
The Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG)
The Clean Cargo Working Group is a platform for forwarders, shippers and carriers to come together to accelerate the decarbonisation of the cargo shipping industry. We are proud to be a member of this forward-looking, collaborative sustainability initiative that through its more than 60 members represents over 80% of container cargo carried globally. The network is coordinated by the non-profit business network BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), which facilitates biannual meetings and webinars on a regular basis, resulting in project ideas and collaboration requests.
Sustainable Air Freight Alliance (SAFA)
We are also a full member of the Sustainable Air Freight Alliance (SAFA); a buyer-supplier collaboration between shippers, freight forwarders, and air freight carriers to track and reduce carbon emissions from air freight and to promote responsible freight transport. The platform will further sustainability-focused decision-making in businesses by assessing and comparing standardised carrier-level environmental and social performance data.
Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) was founded in 2014 by Smart Freight Centre and a small group of multinationals. It is an industry-led partnership to drive emission reduction and enhance efficiency across global logistics supply chains. It does so by providing companies with global standardized guidelines for logistics emissions calculation, reporting and reduction. GLEC is also a platform for the main players of the field to come together to discuss, learn and to work on mutually benefiting sustainability projects. At the moment GLEC has over 60 members.
We subscribe to the rating agencies EcoVadis, CDP, RobecoSAM and ISS ESG.
