KWE Launches “KWE Green Consolidation” Service Utilizing SAF


Starting in December 2023, Kintetsu World Express, Inc. will launch “KWE Green Consolidation” in Japan, a service that will utilize the environmental benefits of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). The company has been actively participating in the SAF programs of its major partner airlines since 2021, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 3) in its own supply chain.

Furthermore, KWE has submitted a commitment letter to the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) to set group-wide Scope 1 and 2 emission reduction targets and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, which has recently been accepted. As a freight forwarder, KWE faces a significant challenge in setting specific and achievable reduction targets for Scope 3, which accounts for the most significant portion of its greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the company is exploring the possibility of creating a framework to share the environmental attributes of SAF with customers who use its consolidation service.

As a first step, KWE will offer a service from December 1, 2023, in which it will allocate the attributes of SAF to its consolidated cargo bound for Hong Kong every Tuesday from Kansai International Airport and make it available to customers who wish to use it. By doing so, the service will contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the supply chains of KWE’s customers, who are committed to reducing their environmental impact. Moreover, KWE can provide them with third-party verified emission reduction certificates. Customers can contact their local KWE sales representative for more information about this service.

KWE’s commitment to decarbonizing international transportation remains strong as the company continues its efforts to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
