Bolloré Logistics has become the first cargo customer to join Air Canada’s environmental Leave Less Travel Program.

The Leave Less Travel Program offers corporate and cargo customers various options to offset or reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to business travel or freight transportation, and reduce their carbon footprint.

Bolloré Logistics has agreed to compensate a significant portion of its GHG emissions associated with its projected shipments with Air Canada Cargo with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) which represents a purchase of 620,000 litres in 2022.

Jason Berry, vice president, cargo at Air Canada, said: “Addressing climate change in aviation requires a multifaceted approach, together with the united efforts of many stakeholders.

“The commitment of companies like Bolloré Logistics is a testament that environmentally-innovative business programmes are mutually possible, further helping the aviation sector to build a long-term, sustainable industry.”

Patrick Lafrance, managing director Canada at Bolloré Logistics, added: “At a time when climate awareness is at the heart of the strategy of many companies, Bolloré Logistics is proud to join a programme that is financing the future of low-carbon air industry.

“Through this initiative with our partner Air Canada, we contribute our scope 3 CO2 reduction targets and offer more sustainable transport solutions to our clients.”

The carbon reduction programme also allows users to calculate and track CO2 emissions.

The tie-up is the latest in a series of agreements for Bolloré Logistics as it looks to reduce its environmental impact.

In August, the logistics firm partnered with United Cargo and it also has agreements with AF KLM Martinair Cargo and IAG Cargo.
