Royal Van Wijhe Verf joins GoodShipping to decarbonize its ocean freight by using biofuel

October 24, 2021 |

In The Netherlands, Royal Van Wijhe Verf, a global supplier of coatings and colourants, joins forces with the world-first sustainable cargo initiative GoodShipping to decarbonise the company’s ocean freight of all incoming raw materials through the application of sustainable marine biofuel. Royal Van Wijhe Verf, known for its portfolio of brands including Wijzonol, Ralston, Rebel Paints and SolidLux, becomes the latest company to join GoodShipping in an effort to achieve a zero-carbon supply chain.

Under the partnership, GoodShipping will facilitate a switch to biofuel for the company’s cargo shipments, therefore providing Royal Van Wijhe Verf with a simple, easy and affordable means of cutting Scope 3 emissions. The use of sustainable marine biofuel allows Royal Van Wijhe Verf to achieve a 100% CO2 well-to-exhaust reduction within its supply chain.

The biofuels used for this partnership are provided by marine biofuels pioneer GoodFuels. All GoodFuels’ biofuels are sustainably sourced and completely derived from residues and waste oil products. The biofuels are also verified by an independent sustainability board of leading academics and NGOs in the transport sectors.
