Sustainable supply chains via insetting

The Port of Rotterdam Authority is entering talks with three chain parties about making their supply chains more sustainable and how the concept of insetting can be applied as part of that process. To achieve this, we are in discussions with cargo owner Bugaboo, short sea shipping company Samskip and FincoEnergies’ insetting provider GoodShipping. In the first two editions we talk to Bugaboo and GoodShipping.

Bugaboo on its way to emission-free supply chain

A CO2-neutral society forms the basis for a future-proof world. Making supply chains sustainable is an essential part of this transition, but it also poses great challenges to shippers. A collaboration between supply chain parties may lead to good results, as Bugaboo’s success story proves.

FincoEnergies’ GoodShipping facilitates sustainable supply chain

Robbert Wehrmeijer wants to contribute to a better world every day. Not only for the sake of his two daughters, but also for future generations in general. As Managing Director of Carbon Management at FincoEnergies, Wehrmeijer has the same motivation. FincoEnergies is an independent supplier of sustainable energy solutions. The GoodShipping brand uses insetting to make sustainable shipping available to all.
