CEVA Logistics, a global provider of 3PL, has announced its involvement as an inaugural participant in United Airlines’ Eco-Skies Alliance, a program involving corporations working with the airline to power future sustainable travel and transportation.
CEVA Logistics and other Eco-Skies Alliance partners will work with United to collectively purchase approximately 3.4 million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel this year, enough to eliminate approximately 31,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions. As an inaugural participant, CEVA Logistics aims to reduce the logistics-related impact on the environment by creating demand for more sustainable aviation fuel in the air-cargo industry.
“At CEVA, we deliver responsive logistics for our customers, and as part of the CMA CGM Group, we’re strongly committed to acting for the planet in the areas of climate change, air quality and biodiversity,” said Mathieu Friedberg, CEO of CEVA Logistics. “With our participation in the United Eco-Skies Alliance, CEVA is taking tangible action today, with an eye on the solutions of tomorrow. Offering a SAF option to our air cargo customers in partnership with United demonstrates CEVA’s commitment to a more sustainable supply chain. We applaud the participation of each member of the Alliance.”
“While we’ve partnered with companies for years to help them offset their flight emissions, we applaud those participating in the Eco-Skies Alliance for recognizing the need to go beyond carbon offsets and support SAF-powered flying, which will lead to more affordable supply and ultimately, lower emissions,” said Scott Kirby, CEO of United. “This is just the beginning. Our goal is to add more companies to the Eco-Skies Alliance, purchase more SAF and work together to find other innovative paths towards decarbonization.”
