Schleich GmbH, one of the largest toy manufacturers in Germany and the leading international provider of realistic animal figures, has decided to neutralize its entire sea freight CO2 footprint with the help of Kuehne+Nagel.
“The decisive factor was Kuehne+Nagel’s Net Zero Carbon program, which sets new standards with CO2 neutral logistics. We are pleased about this cooperation set on common values for the environment and people,” says Dirk Engehausen, Chief Executive Officer of Schleich GmbH.
As part of its Net Zero Carbon program, Kuehne+Nagel offers Schleich a complete solution for CO2 neutralization. By choosing particularly climate-friendly sea freight connections and compensating the remaining emissions with CO2 certificates, the sea freight of the German toy manufacturer is shipped in a climate-neutral way.
Otto Schacht, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel International AG, responsible for Sea Logistics, comments: “Our new partnership with Schleich shows that Kuehne+Nagel has its finger on the pulse with its Net Zero Carbon programme. Our ability to offer Schleich a coordinated package for the CO2 neutral handling of sea freight was decisive. We are pleased to actively support Schleich in their ambitious climate goals.”
