Inditex to Reduce Maritime Transport Emissions with Maersk

Inditex, the parent company of fashion brands such as Zara and Massimo Dutti, entered into a  partnership to reduce its global GHG footprint from seaborne logistics.

The company partnered with Maersk, which will incorporate alternative fuels for all of its inbound routes with the carrier. 

Through the ECO Delivery Ocean program, Maersk replaces fossil fuels on its ships with green fuels like green methanol or second generation biodiesel based on waste feedstocks. 

Switching to these green fuels is expected to deliver an estimated reduction of more than 80% in GHG emissions compared to conventional sources.

“This collaboration is a great example of how boosting innovative solutions with dedicated partners is key to fight climate change. Through this joint initiative with Maersk, we are making significant strides in reducing emissions associated with our sea freight. This project aligns with our goal to reach net zero emissions in 2040 and contributes to scale alternative fuels with a significant reduced carbon footprint,” said Abel Lopez, Head of Import, Export and Transport at Inditex, in a statement

Like Inditex, Maersk has the ambitious climate target to become a net zero company across all business areas by 2040.
