Switzerland’s logistics provider Agility Logistics has signed an agreement with Danish shipping giant Maersk Line to cut CO2 emissions by 15% per container transported for Agility shipments by 2020.

The deal is part of Maersk’s Carbon Pact Challenge, an initiative which aims to drive down harmful emissions and reduce the environmental impact of container shipping, the Danish container carrier said.

Under the contract, the parties will look for ways to cut emissions by shipping cargo on more fuel efficient ships, optimizing shipping routes, and taking other alternative steps to reduce CO2 emissions such as investigating how to integrate CO2 emission indicators into the regular business information flow and procurement of ocean shipping.

“Responsible companies are looking for innovative, commercially viable ways to reduce the impact of their business on the environment,” Cas Pouderoyen, Agility Senior Vice President for Global Ocean Freight, said.

The International Maritime Organization says ocean shipping accounts 3% of the world’s global CO2 emissions and 10% of global O2 emissions from transportation.
