Logistics BusinessSustainability Strategy with Climate Tech

Nippon Express Europe GmbH (NX Europe), a group company of the global Japanese logistics service provider Nippon Express Holdings, is set to realize the achievement of its sustainability goals in collaboration with the Climate Tech start-up, Cozero, based in Berlin.

In NX Group’s pursuit of reducing its CO₂ emissions by 50 percent by 2030 as compared to 2013 (Scope1,2), the parent company, Nippon Express Holdings Inc., submitted a letter of commitment to obtain Science Based Targets (SBT) certification in May 2023.

The collaboration between NX Europe and Cozero stemmed from Cozero’s comprehensive, transparent, and agile end-to-end solution that holistically considers both logistical and non-logistical emissions, which supports the forecasting and planning of decarbonization efforts.

Within a few weeks, Cozero’s Climate Action Platform was implemented at 30 European locations of the company for reporting Scope-1, Scope-2, and Scope-3 emissions. As a result, NX Europe is now able to implement customized local reduction strategies in alignment with SBT.
