time:matters further expands sustainability strategy

  • time:matters is aiming to cut its CO2 emissions by up to 50% by 2025, mainly through the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)
  • It is investing in 100% SAF for all Sameday Air and On Board Courier transports already from this year
  • The company was carbon-neutral in 2022 thanks to reduction and offsetting measures

Given advancing climate change, the United Nations agreed a few years ago to a target of limiting the temperature increase attributable to humans to 1.5 degrees Celsius through a reduction in global carbon emissions. Logistics expert time:matters is playing its part within its industry through a further expansion of its ambitious sustainability strategy. The primary aim is to avoid transport-related emissions where possible and otherwise significantly reduce them using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by up to 50% by 2025. In addition, all other carbon emissions will be fully offset.

The company has already taken various steps to significantly reduce its carbon footprint in recent years. Over the past year, it offset 97% of its own emissions, supplemented by a 3% share of SAF in the total fuel volume. As a result, time:matters’ operations were 100% carbon-neutral in 2022. From January of this year, the company is now investing in the use of 100% SAF for all Sameday Air and On Board Courier transports, including Stem Cell transports.

The logistics expert provides detailed information on its carbon footprint on the time:matters online booking platform and in customer reports. The company calculates its emissions based on the most stringent international standards, such as the GHG Protocol and GLEC Framework.

Alexander Kohnen, CEO of time:matters, stated: “There’s no alternative to sustainable logistics solutions. As a logistics company, we’re contributing to climate change. At the same time, we consider the provision of time-critical transports a matter of life and death in some circumstances. That’s why we’re pursuing a holistic approach with our strategy, encompassing all transports but also every other operational area. Our focus is on three core activities: we will avoid potential emissions wherever possible, reduce current emission levels and offset unavoidable emissions. At the same time, we’re inviting our customers to act sustainably. In this way, we want to play our part in ensuring that our planet remains a viable home for ourselves and future generations.”

For some years already, time:matters has placed great value on a sustainable corporate philosophy, as reflected in the electrification of its fleet, ISO 14001 certification and more. These various approaches are now to be bundled and supplemented with a number of sustainable innovations. This is emphasized with the company’s new claim – “time:matters – Sustainable High-Performance Logistics”.
