Electrolux will use 25% sustainable fuels for sea freight

March 23, 2022 |

In Sweden, Electrolux will now use more sustainable fuels for 25% of its total sea freight. By partnering with shipping companies Maersk and CMA CGM Group to use biofuel based on waste oils and Liquefied Natural Gas, Electrolux will reduce its sea transport greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent already in 2022.

Electrolux is working toward halving its transport emissions by 2025. To reach this target two important agreements have been signed with shipping companies Maersk and CMA CGM. With the new agreements in place, 25% of Electrolux Group’s total sea freight will be transported using the most effective solutions for decarbonizing available in the market right now. 80,000 twenty-foot equivalent containers (TEU) will now be transported by using Maersk’s biofuel, which is based on certified waste oils such as used cooking oil, and CMA CGM’s solution based on LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and guarantee of origin biomethane.
