Nippon Express has begun offering the NX-GREEN SAF Program in Japan, enabling its customers to purchase sustainable aviation fuel to reduce CO2 emissions within supply chains.

The NX-GREEN SAF Program, which began service at NX Europe in July 2023, is a carbon-insetting programme that can be used to reduce CO2 emissions from all air transport services provided by the NX Group.

Air transport utilising SAF can reduce CO2 emissions by about 80% compared to conventional fossil fuels. The programme is available for transport services arranged by the NX Group, which is the first Japanese forwarder to offer such a service without restrictions on the choice of airlines.

Customers participating in the programme will be issued with a CO2 reduction verification statement verified by SGS, one of the world’s largest certification bodies.

To address climate change, the NX Group has set the goals of reducing its own CO2 emissions (SCOPE 1 and 2) by 50% from 2013 levels by 2030, and of helping realise carbon-neutral societies by 2050 (Scope 1, 2 and 3).

The group submitted a letter of commitment in May 2023 to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to have its targets validated.Subscribe to the FINN weekly newsletter
