Sustainable High-Performance Logistics
Our sustainability strategy
time:matters is a provider of emergency and supply-chain logistics. Our business model addresses time-critical needs around the world, and we are proud to offer a service that can sometimes be a matter of life and death.
Still, we recognize that our transport solutions have an impact on the environment. This is why we find it absolutely essential to minimize our carbon footprint.
We want to develop our business in a lean and sustainable direction, so that our actions have the least possible impact on the environment. The earth should remain a viable place for us and the generations to come.
Already since 2022, time:matters has been carbon-neutral thanks to reduction and offsetting measures, including 97% offset and a 3% share of Sustainable Aviation Fuel. From January 2023 onwards, the company invests in the use of 100% SAF for all Sameday Air and On Board Courier transports, including Stem Cell transports.
All in all, time:matters aims to cut its CO2 emissions by up to 50% by 2025, mainly through the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Sustainable aviation fuel: a step towards a CO2-neutral future
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil jet fuel made from oil. It is produced by using carbon from sustainable sources such as biomass or gases, and it aims to create a carbon cycle where fuel is burned, carbon is absorbed by biomass, and fuel is produced again.
Less is more – especially when it comes to CO2 emissions. Our goal is to prevent emissions and waste from occuring in the first place.
This strategy has the potential to be particularly effective in reducing the environmental impact of human activities.
We are actively looking for methods to decrease our environmental impact, for example through insetting. This means that we are introducing sustainable practices into our company’s operations and supply chain. This might include saving water, cutting back on trash, and adopting renewable energy sources wherever possible.
We are offsetting emissions in a variety of ways.
Investing in efficient stoves and thereby improving combustion, preserving forests to reduce deforestation, and supporting conservation efforts are some typical examples of compensation techniques.
Sustainability Development Goals of the UN
We contribute to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals by focusing on sustainability in our business practices. We prioritize being environmentally friendly in order to minimize our impact on the earth.
How do we calculate carbon emissions?
The Squake emissions calculator quantifies the direct and indirect, so-called “well to wheel” (WTW) emissions in CO2-equivalent (CO2e). The estimated emissions represent an average value for the distance from starting point to destination. The calculated emissions per transport account for the amount of CO2e invested in climate protection projects.
Emission calculations and assumptions are in line with GLEC framework and the European standard DIN EN16258.
