Quick Track


The transportation sector is responsible for roughly 7.5 gigatonnes of carbon emissions – about 14% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide. To minimise this impact, we have defined targets and implemented measures to help protect the environment and climate.

At a glance

EV Cargo is focused on becoming carbon neutral in our direct emissions (scope 1 and scope 2) by 2030 and to significantly reduce our indirect emissions (scope 3). We are also committed to reducing other harmful air pollutants and transitioning towards less consumptive and more efficient energy management practices.

Carbon Reduction

With 2021 serving as our baseline emission year, we have set reduction targets in line with the Science Based Targets initiative, committing to a 4.2% annual linear reduction in scope 1 and 2 CO2e emissions, and a 2.5% annual linear reduction in scope 3 CO2e emissions.

Air Pollutants

Initiatives such as co-loading, the use of rail freight over road, and twinning of 20 foot containers has helped us to achieve significant reductions in GHG emissions, as well as NOx, SOx and PM10 emissions.

Energy Efficiency

By leveraging on data analytics and technology, we have been able to reduce the overall volumes of cartons, pallets and containers shipped through the supply chain.


We helped save 15,607 t/CO2e by maximising shipping container fill levels in sea freight transportation.


326 t/CO2e of road transport and associated emissions were eliminated through efficient delivery measures around twinning of shipping containers.

Rail freight

7,873 t/CO2e per container saved through optimising transport modes.

How is EV Cargo reducing emissions?

Renewable/Alternative Fuels

Across our fleet we have introduced HVO fuel across a number of depots and we have also introduced electric vehicles.


We are committed to the UN Global Compact, GLEC framework and Smart Freight.


We have the technology to track the best modes of transport for the most environmentally friendly route from origin to destination for our customers ensuring efficiency between hubs and utilising lower emission fuels.

M&S Case Study

We have rationalised 3,800 carton types to just 10 – a 99% reduction in under eight weeks. As a result, M&S have increased shipping container fill levels for clothing garments by more than 15% to a market-leading 95%.

Reducing Air Pollutants

At EV Cargo we are conscious of the indirect impacts of emissions from combustion of fossil fuels, and we are monitoring the NOx, SOx and other significant air emissions arising from our activities as well as in our value chain.

By leveraging on data analytics and technology, we have been able to reduce the overall volumes of cartons, pallets and containers shipped through the supply chain.

At the same time, initiatives such as co-loading of less than container load, use of rail freight where possible and twinning 20 foot containers, help us to achieve significant reductions in GHG emissions as well as NOx, COx and PM10 emissions, benefitting both the environment, as well as lowering supply chain costs.

We are also the first in the FMCG sector to run an electric HGV truck and run a fleet of vehicles on HVO fuel, this fuel reduces carbon emissions by up to 92%.
