Kuehne+Nagel and LATAM Airlines Group will compensate 100% of the emissions generated by the flower shipments they managed together during the recent Mothers’ Day season.

During the season, thousands of tonnes of flowers were transported from Colombia and Ecuador to North America and Europe.

The offsets will be focused on benefiting two projects; one in Chile and one in Peru.

In Chile, it is the Photovoltaic Solar Park, located in the Atacama Desert, aimed at generating clean and renewable energy.

In Peru, the offset focuses on Community Forest Management, on the edge of the Amazon rainforest, which drives global emissions reductions.

Ingo Goldhammer, president of Kuehne+Nagel for South and Central America, said: “We have a clear purpose in sustainability. The partnership with LATAM fills us with optimism as we develop
nature-based projects within the region and protect the place we live in while delivering value to our like-minded customers and the community”.

Andrés Bianchi, chief executive of LATAM Cargo, added: “We capped a record-breaking Mother’s day season in terms of volume with this landmark achievement. Collaborating with Kuehne+Nagel in offsetting these shipments carbon emissions is a significant milestone for our Let’s Fly Neutral Program, and we look forward to continuing offering our customers more options to jointly reach our sustainability goals”.
