LATAM Group, Cargo Clients in Brazil Partner to Offset 5,000 Tons of CO2

LATAM Cargo Brazil has revealed at Intermodal South America 2024 that it will initially offset more than 5,000 tons of CO2 in partnership with the companies Brix Cargoand Unicargo. These are the first cargo business clients in Brazil to join the "1+1: Offset to Conserve'' program, aimed at offsetting flight emissions.

In a long-term commitment, clients will offset 2,500 tons of CO2 in the region, an amount that doubles to 5,000 tons thanks to LATAM Cargo's contribution, covering all emissions generated by Brix Cargo and Unicargo cargo shipments during 2023. In line with its sustainability program, LATAM group ensures that its cargo clients take responsibility for compensating only 50% of their emissions, while the cargo company will be responsible for offsetting the other half. The companies' contributions will benefit certified projects that seek to conserve strategic ecosystems in South America.

"Brix Cargo and Unicargo have been long-time partners of ours. We are delighted that they are the first companies to offset the emissions of the flights carrying their cargo. LATAM is committed to contributing to aviation that reduces or offsets its greenhouse gas emissions, with a network of clients helping us in this mission," says Otávio Meneguette, LATAM Cargo's Director in Brazil.

"Brix Cargo is proud of its partnership with LATAM in the "1+1: Offset to Conserve" program. This partnership with LATAM reinforces our commitment to a more sustainable future for the cargo transportation sector. We believe that neutralizing emissions is fundamental to mitigating the effects of climate change and protecting the environment. In this way, we reiterate one of our company's most important values, which is Social and Environmental Responsibility," says Leandro Gonçalves, CEO of Brix Cargo.

"We are proud to announce our partnership with LATAM for the settlement of carbon credits on our freights, reaffirming our ongoing commitment to sustainable and responsible practices. Unicargo works with suppliers and already offers customers a solution to meet their scope 3, neutralizing the freight they carry.  This action highlights our efforts to contribute to the environment through the search for innovative solutions for a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future," says Wanderley Soares, CEO of UNICARGO.
