Japanese shipping line Ocean Network Express has a launched a “eco calculator” to help customers measure the full life cycle of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from cargo transport.

The ONE Eco Calculator provides total distance and total CO2 emissions from Place of Receipt to Place of Delivery, including door locations. CO2 emissions are expressed as either Tank-to-Wake (TTW), a measure of emissions from burning fuel, which has been stored in a tank, or Well-to-Wake (WTW), a measure of emissions from fuel production, delivery, and use aboard ships.

The calculator will help customers manage their own cargo emissions across all modes of transport.

“As we strive towards decarbonization, ONE is on a continuous journey to encourage stakeholders to participate,” said Koshiro Wake, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy & Sustainability Department, Ocean Network Express (ONE). “Thus, the ONE Eco Calculator was developed not only for ourselves, but also for like-minded players and customers seeking sustainable transport solutions and seeking to manage their own cargo emissions.”

ONE has set a target of becoming carbon neutral by 2050 as part of its Green Strategy.

Ocean Network Express (ONE) was established in 2017 through the integration of the container shipping businesses of Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (“K” LINE), Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) and Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK). The new entity, which is headquartered in Singapore, ranks as the world’s seventh largest container carrier with a fleet size of approximately 1.51 million TEU and 205 vessels.
