Introducing a sustainable shippers association to collectively address GHG emissions within supply chains
February 1, 2023 – New York, NY – Greenabl Shippers Association, the logistics industry’s first not-for-profit cooperative procurement group committed to decarbonization, announced its launch today. The association will be managed by Bluspark which has deep roots in ocean freight and procurement as well as support for importers and exporters — most notably through the management of and technology support for Gemini Shippers Association.
“With the right combination of technologies, policies and operational changes, it is possible to reduce the industry’s carbon output and transition to a more sustainable future.”—Ken O’Brien, President & CEO, Bluspark
The path to global supply chain decarbonization requires commitment, cooperation and action from multiple stakeholders. The company believes that a green-focused, supply chain coalition like Greenabl is part of the solution.
“Everyone has a part to play,” explained Ken O’Brien, president & CEO of Bluspark. “Decarbonizing the transportation industry is a complex and challenging task. However, we think that with the right combination of technologies, policies and operational changes, it is possible to reduce the industry’s carbon output and transition to a more sustainable future.”
Like many shippers associations, a neutral cooperative procurement approach is at the core of the Greenabl solution. However, what makes Greenabl unique is that it has combined this coalition strategy with a powerful technology platform to enable both shippers and carriers to measure, mitigate and offset their GHG emissions.
“Greenabl is the first of its kind and I’m optimistic that it will change the transportation industry for good,” said George Goldman, former president at ZIM American Integrated Shipping Services and executive chairman of Greenabl. “With a commitment to both inset and offset initiatives, plus the necessary reporting and analytics to measure success, Greenabl is providing a 360-degree solution.”
Companies that are looking to accelerate their sustainability and decarbonization efforts have two initial membership options. More information is available at greenabl.co/about.
