Sustainable Shipping for a Sustainable Planet
Happy World Maritime Day 2020
This year’s theme of the World Maritime Day is ‘Sustainable Shipping for a Sustainable Planet’ and aims to raise awareness of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) developed as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by 193 countries in 2015.
Most of the elements of the 2030 Agenda will only be realised with a sustainable transport sector supporting world trade and facilitating global economy and actively working towards achieving these goals with all of its stakeholders.
At Woodland, we take our role and connected responsibility within the supply chain industry seriously and continue to further develop solutions to aid the industry’s work towards achieving the 17 SDG’s.
This includes collaborating with ports’ and carriers’ sustainability programmes, launching our free transport emissions calculator, delivering carbon reduction solutions and connecting to offsetting projects that address the SDGs, as well as continuously working to deliver transparency to our clients’ supply chain, to reduce our own fleet’s carbon footprint, to develop green warehousing and fulfilment solutions and final mile delivery, and to optimise and reduce our own waste, packaging and energy management.
We are proud to be celebrating the importance of the shipping industry as well as its responsibility to future sustainable growth today and the commitment of the IMO and the global maritime community in working towards its sustainable goals.
