Ocean Network Express Introduces Innovative Low-Emission Shipping Service: ONE LEAF+

In a significant step towards a greener future, Japanese shipping giant Ocean Network Express (ONE) has rolled out an exciting new service aimed at slashing emissions and boosting sustainability across the shipping industry. Dubbed ONE LEAF+, this innovative service is designed not just to align with the industry's decarbonization goals, but to lead the charge.

What’s in a Name? More Than You Think!

The name ONE LEAF+ might sound simple, but it packs a powerful message. LEAF stands for "low emission-able freight," emphasizing the service’s core mission to reduce environmental impact. The ‘+’ symbol isn’t just a design choice; it represents the progress ONE aims to achieve in decarbonizing the supply chain.

A Game-Changer in Sustainable Shipping

ONE LEAF+ is set to transform how businesses handle their shipping needs by offering a path to manage emissions effectively. This service integrates the use of alternative fuels that comply with current regulations, specifically chosen for designated vessels. The result? Customers can significantly cut down their Scope 3 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, taking a proactive step towards a more sustainable operational framework.

Transparent and Accountable

What makes ONE LEAF+ stand out is its commitment to transparency. Customers opting for this service will receive certification for their shipments, detailing the CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) savings. These certifications, verified by an independent third party, are not just pieces of paper; they are a testament to the tangible steps taken towards reducing environmental footprints. This feature is particularly beneficial for companies looking to monitor and report their progress on sustainability goals.

A Steadfast Commitment to Sustainability

Gilberto Santos, SVP of ONE’s global commercial service management, reiterates the company's dedication to sustainability. “At ONE, we are fully committed to our target of achieving net-zero GHG emissions by 2050," Santos states. The launch of ONE LEAF+ is a clear indicator of this commitment, arming customers with the necessary tools and insights to make environmentally responsible choices concerning their Scope 3 GHG emissions.

Looking Ahead

The introduction of ONE LEAF+ by Ocean Network Express is more than just a new service; it’s a pivotal move towards a sustainable future in shipping. As more companies and industries join this wave of change, the impact on global emissions could be profound. ONE’s initiative is a call to action for all, underscoring the critical role of innovation and responsibility in tackling climate change.
