Flock Freight, a logistics provider that offers shared truckload service, has announced its ambition for net zero carbon emissions by 2040.

It has joined The Climate Pledge, co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism, whereby signatories pledge to reach net zero 10 years ahead of the Paris climate goal.

As part of the pledge, Flock Freight has agreed to measure and report greenhouse gas emissions on a regulator basis as well as implement decarbonisation strategies in line with the Paris agreement through real business changes and innovations, including efficiency improvements, renewable energy, material reductions and other carbon elimination strategies.

In addition, it will neutralise any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent and socially beneficial offsets to achieve the 2040 net zero goal.

Flock Freight’s shared truckload service, FlockDirect, is claimed to be the industry’s only carbon-neutral shipping mode offered at no extra cost to shippers.

In 2019, the company’s solution saved the equivalent of more than 4,335 metric tons of CO2 and last year, it reduced carbon emissions by 5,000 metric tons through shared truckload shipping.

In addition, it is aiming to remove 20,000 metric tons of CO2-equivalent through FlockDirect this year.

Oren Zaslansky, CEO and founder of Flock Freight said: “As a sustainability-focused B Corporation, Flock Freight believes climate change demands urgent and universal action. We know our planet’s wellbeing tomorrow hinges on the decisions we make today.

“With future generations in mind, we’re working to eliminate freight waste and inefficiency. We’re proud to add our names to the Climate Pledge and hope others follow suit.”
