About Clean Cargo
Clean Cargo is a business-to-business leadership initiative that involves major brands, cargo carriers, and freight forwarders dedicated to reducing the environmental impacts of global goods transportation and promoting responsible shipping. Clean Cargo represents around 85 percent of global container cargo capacity and constitutes the leading buyer-supplier forum for sustainability in the cargo shipping industry.
As one of the most well-established green freight initiatives and one of the few with a global reach, our CO2 Emissions Calculation Methodology is the ocean shipping standard used by other initiatives such as U.S. EPA's SmartWay Program, and the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC).
Clean Cargo members share a vision of a shipping industry that is a responsible part of sustainable supply chains and that supports clean oceans, healthy port communities, and global climate goals.
