Whether or not you believe that climate change is the result of CO₂ emissions, we should all agree that we need to stop polluting our world. We are therefore committed to transitioning to renewable energy and adopting low-emission solutions and processes. Meelunie is working on climate-neutral freights by partnering and participating with organizations that share the same ambition. We will further step up our ambitions regarding the reduction of GHG-emissions in line with the Paris Agreement, our energy efficiency and our use of biofuels.
On July 4th 2019, Meelunie and GoodShipping have joined forces to decarbonise Meelunie’s Asian sea freight, the companies announced. Meelunie, which exports to over 100 countries around the world, becomes the latest company to join the GoodShipping Program in an effort to decarbonise their supply chain.
We are excited about its latest strategic partnership with CarbonCloud. CarbonCloud’s science-based platform calculates extremely accurately the climate footprint of food products. With a growing network, particularly in the food industry, CarbonCloud facilitates the climate efforts of pioneering companies like Oatly and Tenzing. This new partnership is a boost for our ‘Plant Based Positive Impact’ mission with the ambition to produce climate-neutral plant-based ingredients. And that is not the only good news, it makes us one of the first B2B companies to take this leap. Follow the link to see what the shared ambitions are of David Bryngelsson, CEO at CarbonCloud and Gijs van Elst, Director Health Ingredients at Meelunie.
FairClimateFund (FCF) is one of our partners that helps us in our mission to strive for a carbon-neutral supply chain by the year 2030. FCF ‘sells’ carbon credits (Fairtrade and Gold Standard), using the income to support poor families in developing countries. FairClimateFund provides since early 2011 around 18,000 households with cleaner cookstoves or Chulikas. These Chulikas reduce the use of wood by two-thirds. This leads to less smoke formation, protects the local forest, reduces the amount of time women need to spend on gathering firewood and leads to a reduction of CO₂ emissions: a method that is in line with Meelunie’s CO₂ mission.

The Meelunie CO2 Calculator is a software tool to calculate the greenhouse emissions (GHG) per traffic lane of our shipments worldwide. The calculations are based on data from the previous 12 months provided by the Clean Cargo Working Group (CCWG). Every year, we will upload their data into our system to update our CO2 Calculator.
