Four South-African Perishable freight agents – Aviator Airfreight, Grindrod PCA, Morgan Cargo, and Sky Services – recently inked an agreement with Air France-KLM, the first CO2 compensation dea, to compensate at least 50 per cent of the CO2 emitted by the transportation of fruit during the months of November and December.

Earlier this year, AF-KL Cargo was the first major air carrier to offer the CO2 compensation service to its customers, allowing both freight forwarders and shippers to gain detailed insight into the CO2 emission of their shipments and the possibility to compensate for this emission.

The compensation contribution is invested fully in projects that create wind, water or solar energy with a Gold Standard certificate – guaranteeing premium projects in the carbon market which are audited by external parties.
