JAS Worldwide, a global supply chain and logistics company, announced its partnership with Lune, a leading provider for funding high quality climate projects.

The collaboration will enable JAS customers to contribute to climate projects and compensate for difficult-to-abate logistics emissions, says a release from JAS.

"As the transport and logistics industry contributes approx. 11% of global CO₂ emissions, JAS sees that it has an important role to play in tackling the challenge of reducing the industry’s impact. In addition to reducing CO₂ emissions from freight, JAS aims to extend its influence beyond the logistics value chain and enable its customers to take action by contributing to impactful climate projects around the world. However, navigating this commitment with credibility poses a unique challenge, given the carbon credit market's prevalence of projects with questionable impact and limited transparency."

JAS selected Lune as its partner for carbon offsetting because of its shared commitment to transparency and positive impact, the release added. "By leveraging a rigorous vetting process and comprehensive six-point evaluation criteria, Lune curates a list of high quality climate projects such as reforestation, mangroves restoration, concrete mineralisation or enhanced rock weathering. The initial projects chosen by JAS Worldwide are aligned with the Oxford Offsetting Principles best-in-class portfolio."

Andrea Goeman, SVP, QHSE & Sustainability, JAS Worldwide says: "By offering our customers not only biofuel insetting and network optimisation solutions but also offsetting opportunities through our partnership with Lune, we help them achieve their environmental goals while keeping our promise to make a positive impact.”

Erik Stadigh, Co-Founder and CEO, Lune adds: “Working with JAS Worldwide, we are excited to bring a new level of integrity and clarity to end-to-end sustainable logistics. Our collaboration sets a new standard for how the logistics sector can contribute to a climate positive world."
