We are committed to preserving the planet


We strive to better understand our environmental impact and to provide data for our customers to support their sustainability goals through customer carbon emission reporting.

Environmental issues are at the centre of our concerns

The environmental measurement software we are developing will allow our customers to get more accurate information about their carbon emissions. Next to it, we have taken several actions in the past few years, such as:

  • Being an active member of the Clean Cargo Working Group, 
  • Joining the Sustainable Air Freight Alliance (SAFA), which advocates responsible transportation. The SAFA is made up of shipping companies, airlines and freight forwarders that are committed to measuring and reducing their carbon dioxide emissions.
  • Joining United Airlines' Eco-Skies Alliance, a first of its kind program involving leading global corporations working with the airline to power future flying in a more sustainable way.

We conduct numerous checks on our customers and suppliers and encourage their local environmental initiatives.

Reducing the logistics-related impact on the environment

United Airlines’ Eco-Skies Alliance is a first of its kind program involving leading global corporations working with the airline to power future flying in a more sustainable way.

As an inaugural participantCEVA Logistics is taking a lead in the air cargo industry to reduce the logistics-related impact on the environment at the source by creating demand for more sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).


ECTN Alliance

CEVA Logistics, ENGIE, and SANEF join forces to fight climate change and launch the European Clean Transport Network Alliance (ECTN Alliance), a concrete solution to decarbonize road freight transport.

In late 2023 the Alliance launched the proof of concept which covers 900 kilometers between Avignon and Lille in France, with four highway segments between five relay stations. Over a two-year period, it will test in real-life conditions low-carbon, long-distance freight transport on France’s highways. The large-scale test involves all road transport stakeholders (trucking companies, truck drivers, customers, energy suppliers, motorway operators, truck manufacturers, public authorities, etc.) in an open, cooperative approach.



  • Through our Green Ocean Solutions we utilize alternative energies such as BioFuel and LNG to minimize GHG emissions. In addition, we offer our customers the possibility to compensate 100% of CO2 emissions through gold-certified re-forestry or biodiversity programs. 
  • Our teams around the world are investing in sustainable transport such as electric vehicles and trucks fueled with natural gas to enable a greener transportation solution for our customers, whilst reducing the impact on the environment. 
  • We offer an Eco Calculator on our website and through myCEVA, our digital freight platform, to estimate the logistics carbon footprint of a shipment via ocean, air or ground. 
  • We were awarded the Ecovadis Silver Medal, in recognition of our commitment to protecting the planet. The Silver Medal award acknowledges our policies in all CSR fields, notably on the environment criteria.

Local practices we are proud of

Our teams are committed to fighting waste

In Italy, we rent a site of twelve warehouses equipped with high-efficiency photovoltaic energy production systems, covering a total area of 278,750m², with savings of 9040t per year. Our team also created a paperless process, from the beginning to the end of the chain.

Reducing the environmental impact in our warehouses

Producing clean energy and educating people

In the Benelux, CEVA warehouses are designed to become electricity neutral, using solar panels, wind power, LED technology and efficient equipment. This initiative goes hand in hand with employee awareness concerning energy saving.

Planting trees to offset emissions

Our employees are committed to sustainable development

In Brazil, tree planting compensates any CO2 emissions above the site targets. This program meets many sustainability criteria: the plants are purchased from local communities in partnership with the NGO SOS Mata Atlântica. Finally, employees are also aware of the issue, and 5,000 of them have already received training.
