UK Greetings is the first Kuehne+Nagel UK customer to sign up to their Net Zero Carbon Programme!

UK Greetings has announced that they have become the first Kuehne+Nagel UK customer to sign up to their Net Zero Carbon Programme.

Over the last few years UKG’s teams have been working hard to bring about cost efficiencies and improved new ways of working – particularly from an environmental perspective. The intricacies of the supply chain are complex with distribution to 20 countries, production facilities across UK, Europe, USA and Asia and ultimately supplying over 8000 retail stores.

To ensure the excellent quality and optimum availability of our products, UK Greetings works with a network of global suppliers. Since March 2020, UK Greetings have been working in partnership with Kuehne+Nagel UK, to manage their sea freight logistics from Asia.

By choosing particularly climate-friendly transport solutions and offsetting the remaining emissions with CO2 certificates, UK Greetings’ logistics can now proudly say that this process is climate-neutral (having no net carbon [greenhouse gas] emissions). This is achieved by minimising carbon emissions as much as possible and using carbon offsets to mitigate the remaining emissions.

Richard Wilkinson, Operations Director, UK Greetings Ltd, said, “Businesses have a hugely important role to help build a more sustainable future. UK Greetings actively supports the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to transform our world by ending poverty and inequality, protecting the planet, and ensuring that all people enjoy health, justice and prosperity. Targeting the climate crisis, UK Greetings are making every effort to reduce carbon emissions from overseas shipping, as we strive to increase manufacturing in the UK. We are excited to join the Net Zero Carbon Programme, which will offset our remaining carbon emissions associated with the importation of our products.”
