Net Zero Initiative

Discover the concrete actions we are implementing
to reduce the carbon intensity of our activity by 2030. 

Our commitment

Transparency on carbon impact

OVRSEA pledged to share information about its carbon footprint when it joined more than 200 start-ups in signing the Climate Act in April 2021. How will we accomplish this?

- By publishing the volume of our emissions each year (direct and indirect - both related to the travel of our employees and the management of the transport - that is 148 and 15,000 tons in 2021)
- By introducing concrete actions to achieve a 20% reduction in our carbon emissions by 2030.


Our goal

Achieve a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions from freight transport by 2030

Currently, freight transport is responsible for 7% of global GHG emissions. Reducing the carbon footprint of transportation is therefore critical.

To this end, OVRSEA helps its clients choose the best strategies to reduce their carbon footprint through actions that can be implemented both immediately and through ongoing and future projects…

3 measures that can be taken today...


Measure CO2 emissions to choose the best transportation option

More visibility for better anticipation

OVRSEA guides companies in their choice of transport by displaying, as soon as proposals are sent, the CO2 emissions per transport.

In order to provide reliable and transparent data, OVRSEA offers its clients the possibility to measure their carbon impact over time using EcoTransit - a method for calculating the emissions of freight transport worldwide.


Reduce CO2 emissions to optimize transportation costs

Customized transportation plans to spend less

Because reducing CO2 emissions and costs go hand in hand, OVRSEA assists its customers in establishing a more efficient and thus less expensive supply chain.

The ability of businesses to optimize their transportation, for example, by increasing the use of maritime transport, which emits nearly 50 times less CO2 than air transport, is critical to reducing carbon impact.


Offset CO2 emissions through projects with high economic and social impact

Carbon sequestration projects for incompressible emissions

OVRSEA's collaboration with the San Martin project - a reforestation initiative in Peru led by the social enterprise Pur Projet, enables its customers to compensate for emissions associated with transportation that could not be optimized.

The best CO2 reduction, however, is one that does not take place... This is why OVRSEA assists its customers in optimizing their supply chains and reducing emissions in order to achieve their carbon neutrality goals.


... and 3 new measures to be deployed by 2030


Optimize CO2 emission calculators

Currently, OVRSEA uses programmed calculators with average ship consumption.

In the near feature, OVRSEA aims to incorporate individual supplier initiatives (hydrogen, electric trucks etc.) into these calculators to assist businesses in reducing their carbon emissions from goods transportation.


Prioritize modes of transport emitting less CO2

OVRSEA also aims to enable companies to detect in their transport plans the routes that can be optimized by giving priority, where possible, to sea transport, grouped transport and transport modes that emit less greenhouse gas (LNG ships, electric trucks, etc.).


Provide environmental performance data

Finally, OVRSEA is committed to analyzing the ecological performance of its activity in the same way as its transport performance: in full transparency and in relation to previously set objectives (for example transit time objectives).
