OBE Organic works with Maersk on eco friendly delivery
OBE Organic is Australia's oldest company that exports organic beef. It is the first company in Oceania to ship refrigerated meat to North America. Maersk's low-emission ECO Delivery product cuts CO2 emissions by more than 80% for customers.
OBE Organic, Australia's oldest organic beef exporting company, has become the first refrigerated meat exporter in Oceania to significantly reduce its North America exports' ocean emissions.
OBE Organic's entire supply chain is certified organic, from purchasing certified organic cattle from producers to having the cattle processed at modern certified organic abattoirs to selling grass fed organic beef globally.
Maersk's low emission ECO Delivery product, which reduces CO2 emissions by more than 80%, is now helping the company reduce its carbon footprint even further.
"At OBE Organic, we take our commitment to people, animals, the environment and our product seriously. We became the first and only Australian beef company to join the UN Global Compact as a Signatory. "
"Our company is mindful that in all our actions, we are taking positive steps to reduce the impact on the planet, as healthy landscapes create healthy food. The choice of Maersk ECO Delivery for our sea freight to North America is a natural initiative towards a more sustainable future, as it provides direct carbon savings rather than carbon offsetting." Dalene Wray, Managing Director of OBE Organic.
Maersk ECO Delivery is a customer offering for ocean transport that uses green biofuels. It is a solution backed by some of the world's most trusted and respected environmental and emissions bodies, and it employs proven methodologies to demonstrate that carbon savings are measurable.
"We are humbled to have OBE Organic partnering with us to decarbonise their supply chain. With Maersk ECO Delivery, we can ensure that the need to support our customers in securing resilient global supply chains goes hand in hand with the imperative of decarbonising logistics."
"The cooperation is another milestone in decarbonising shipping operations in Oceania, and we expect increased growth for this solution in the coming years." Henrik Jensen, Managing Director of Maersk Oceania.
Since its launch in 2019, customer demand for Maersk ECO Delivery has increased by more than 170% year on year. Maersk is also working to expand the ECO Delivery product to 3rd party verified low emission landside Logistics & Services products in order to provide green solutions to customers across the entire value chain.
