Kuehne+Nagel, LATAM group and Elite Group to purchase SAF for Mother's Day

Kuehne+Nagel, LATAM Group and Elite Group reached a new joint agreement to reduce emissions from the transportation of flowers for Mother's Day. There were 34,615 liters of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) purchased together, equivalent to the CO2 reduction of 70 tons of flowers moved in peak seasons from Bogota, Colombia to Miami, United States. This translates into the transportation of more than 1.6 million flower stems.

Kuehne+Nagel has made reducing emissions in the logistics industry a central element of its strategic Roadmap 2026 and Vision 2030. Yngve Ruud, Executive Vice President Air Logistics at Kuehne+Nagel, comments: “It is crucial to drive actions in the industry that emphasize the importance of establishing a sustainability strategy. Based on long-term collaboration, the impacts of the initiatives developed increase over time. The decarbonisation challenges faced by logistics companies are ambitious, and the only way to achieve them is by leading the conversation and actions around the ESG agenda at a global level”.

Andrés Bianchi, CEO of LATAM group cargo operators, adds "With this alliance, the commitment and effort of the LATAM Group against climate change are deepened, challenging ourselves to achieve net- zero emissions by 2050. Collaboration among the various actors in this industry is essential to progress at the pace necessary to meet our goals. We hope that examples like this will help generate more solutions that contribute to decarbonization and encourage the development of this type of fuel in South America, where there is great potential."
