What is Clean Cargo?

A partnership supporting the decarbonization of containerized ocean cargo transportation
With Clean Cargo, Smart Freight Centre offers a collaborative partnership between ocean container carriers, freight forwarders, and cargo owners that is focused on tracking and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from container shipping.

Clean Cargo member companies include major ocean freight transportation buyers, freight forwarders, and ocean container carriers.

Members

Clean Cargo member companies include major ocean freight transportation buyers, freight forwarders, and ocean container cargo carriers.

Data and Methods

Clean Cargo carriers regularly submit third party verified vessel operational and technical information to SFC.

History of Clean Cargo

Clean Cargo was established in 2003 as an initiative between ocean shippers, forwarders, and carriers with an interest in a sustainable container shipping sector.

What Clean Cargo does

Clean Cargo generates high quality, decision useful containership greenhouse gas emissions performance information for members. Clean Cargo also serves as a forum for best practice sharing amongst members.

SFC works with Clean Cargo members to generate carrier specific greenhouse gas emission performance information according to the member-developed and maintained Clean Cargo methods. There is no other program, initiative, or service – voluntary or regulatory – that generates containership emissions performance information at the level of aggregation, level of quality, and with the foundation in primary carrier data as that generated by Clean Cargo.
