RHEGREEN is a calculation method based on available aircraft types, fuel consumption and distances to be covered. The emissions optimised air freight solution service is available free of charge and is able to determine which aircraft is the most efficient in terms of CO2 emissions to a particular destination.
Corporate social responsibility is important, especially for future generations. With RHEGREEN, Rhenus shows how the logistics service provider takes sustainability seriously. The CO2 reduction program is an initiative that Rhenus in the Netherlands has developed for air freight shipments. You now have the opportunity to choose the most environmentally friendly option for the transport of your air freight to a certain destination at no extra cost.
RHEGREEN is a unique air freight service developed by Rhenus in the Netherlands. The service is also the world's first CO2 reduction programme for air freight. RHEGREEN gives you the opportunity to choose the most efficient aircraft from a sustainability point of view. Not only can you reduce emissions, but you can also communicate this to your stakeholders within the framework of your CSR policy.
RHEGREEN is a calculation method based on available types of equipment, fuel consumption and distances to be covered. In short: RHEGREEN calculates which aircraft is most efficient in terms of CO2 emissions per route. An external party has validated the transparency and independency of the calculation method. This validation confirmed that by making the greenest choice, a CO2 reduction of 10 to 40 percent per shipment can be achieved.
Yes, that is possible. We can offer this service on any long-distance haul. Ask your local contact person for the possibilities, or send an email to [email protected]
Rhenus offers the green option regardless of the price level of the airline operating the most fuel-efficient aircraft to the destination. This can be the more expensive one, but may as well be the cheapest one.
Yes, that is possible. For example, if you choose the fastest option to your destination, this can also be the cheapest and/or greenest option. The possibility to book different services at the same time depends on the destination, the airlines offering flights to this destination and the aircraft types they operate to this destination. Currently, the airline pricing to a destination is not depending on the aircraft type they operate.
We currently focus on the implementation of RHEGREEN to all destinations and from all origins. However, we will explore the possibilities for ocean freight in the near future.
The purpose of the RHEGREEN tool is to estimate the amount of CO2 emissions of cargo loads during a specific flight defined by the departure airport and the arrival airport.
