Blume assists customers in removing carbon emissions from the whole freight cargo lifecycle as a supply chain sustainability leader.
FREMONT, CA: Blume Global, a primary logistics and supply chain solution provider, has achieved carbon neutrality thanks to the world's largest internationally integrated multi-modal logistics network.
Blume teamed with the South Pole, a renowned climate solutions supplier and carbon project developer, to examine Blume's carbon footprint and offset 1,805 tonnes of Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions to reach carbon neutrality. Blume invested in a rooftop solar power project in New Delhi and a forest protection project in Kariba, Zimbabwe, to mitigate these emissions.
Blume's carbon footprint reduced as a result of the projects, but that is only the beginning. Blume and the South Pole have collaborated on a greenhouse gas emissions reduction strategy that includes direct and indirect emissions from Blume-owned or controlled sources and emissions from company operations, including travel, commuting, and trash disposal.
Blume Global is not only setting an example by becoming carbon neutral. The organization strives to be a part of every logistics business's supply chain sustainability dialogue, assisting stakeholders in making better, greener freight transportation decisions and demonstrating how to use technology to minimize greenhouse gas emissions in the supply chain.
Blume customers use the domestic reload and street turn solutions to reduce empty miles in the supply chain by arranging container movement to minimize empty repositioning or matching outgoing and incoming transportation requirements. These technologies reduce empty miles by 20-30 percentage, resulting in considerable reductions in carbon dioxide emissions.
"Removing carbon emissions from the supply chain requires orchestrating across multiple companies and departments, which is extremely challenging," said Pervinder Johar, CEO of Blume Global. "We are working to empower the entire supply chain ecosystem — from the smallest dray carrier to the largest shippers — to eliminate waste and reduce fossil fuel consumption. By becoming carbon neutral ourselves, we're leading by example, showing supply chain stakeholders around the globe the importance of creating a greener, cleaner logistics industry."
