Offering a sustainable alternative fuel for Ocean freight is another step within GEODIS sustainability efforts.   Sustainable Marine Fuel (SMF) is indeed a key element to mitigate ocean transportation's impact on climate change. It is in fact one of the most effective measure at the present time to significantly reduce the environmental footprint of our activities.   Made from sustainable feedstocks (mainly cooking oil), it is very similar in its chemistry to traditional fossil fuel. The result of SMF use is a significantly reduced amount of additional carbon introduced into the global carbon cycle of at least 75%. This is one of the strategic paths followed by GEODIS to help reduce CO2 emissions from ocean freight.   GEODIS SMF is an “insetting” solution that offers our customers the possibility to act directly on their transportation. Specifically, GEODIS customers can now decarbonize their complete ocean freight supply chains as the new service offer a fuel-switch on behalf of the customer.             GEODIS is now offering its customers a new and easier way to contribute to the reduction of their carbon footprint by choosing sustainable biofuels.   Need for more information on this solution?
