Hapag-Lloyd has entered into a cooperation with Ikea Supply Chain Operations to decarbonize the German shipping line´s container shipments from Asia, marking an important step towards a more sustainable maritime industry.

For the period from March 2024 to February 2025, both companies agreed to use Hapag-Lloyd´s highest product option for biofuels, “Ship Green 100,” which is based on waste and residue-based biofuels instead of conventional marine fuel oil. The expected result for Ikea, during this period, is a reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of around 100,000 tons.

Ikea´s goal is to reduce relative GHG emissions from the transportation of its products by 70% by 2030 and to use only zero-emission heavy-duty vehicles and ocean-going vessels by 2040.

This partnership represents an important step forward in the maritime industry, where collaboration and innovation intersect to create a greener and more sustainable future for global shipping. Both Hapag-Lloyd and Ikea are committed to leading the way in environmentally conscious practices, setting a benchmark for the industry.

Hapag-Lloyd has launched the Ship Green product to offer its customers emission-reducing shipping. Based on biofuels, Hapag-Lloyd customers can choose to avoid 100%, 50% or 25% of CO2e emissions.

Ship Green, the company said, is available for all shipments, including standard, reefer, hardtop and tanker equipment.
