ONE Launches ONE LEAF+: Pioneering Sustainable Shipping

Innovative Service Empowers Emission Reductions and Transparency in Maritime Logistics


Japanese liner Ocean Network Express (ONE) has introduced a pioneering shipping service, named ONE LEAF+, aimed at aligning with the collective decarbonization objectives of the maritime industry. This innovative service stands as a testament to ONE’s steadfast dedication to environmental stewardship while facilitating customers in proactively managing their emissions footprint throughout the supply chain.

ONE LEAF+, an acronym for “low emission-able freight,” represents a strategic initiative by ONE to propel advancements in decarbonizing the shipping sector. Symbolized by the appended ‘+’, this service embodies the progressive strides anticipated through the concerted efforts toward sustainability.

Central to the ONE LEAF+ service is the integration of regulation-compliant alternative fuels within designated vessels, strategically chosen to mitigate Scope 3 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. By incorporating these alternative fuels into their shipping operations, customers are empowered to significantly curtail their carbon footprint, thereby contributing to the overarching sustainability objectives.

Integral to the service is the provision of comprehensive certification, meticulously detailing the CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) savings achieved through utilizing ONE LEAF+. This certification, endorsed by an independent third party, ensures the veracity and credibility of emission reductions attributed to shipments facilitated by ONE. Such transparent documentation serves to empower customers with the necessary insights to meticulously monitor and evaluate their progress toward sustainability benchmarks.

Gilberto Santos, Senior Vice President of ONE’s global commercial service management, reiterated the company’s unwavering commitment to achieving net-zero GHG emissions by 2050. He emphasized the strategic significance of ONE LEAF+ in epitomizing this commitment and its role in furnishing customers with the requisite tools and transparency to navigate their Scope 3 GHG emissions effectively.

The introduction of ONE LEAF+ heralds a transformative paradigm shift within the maritime industry, exemplifying a fusion of environmental responsibility and operational efficiency. As stakeholders increasingly prioritize sustainability considerations, initiatives like ONE LEAF+ underscore the pivotal role of collaborative endeavors in charting a course toward a greener, more sustainable future for global shipping. Through such initiatives, ONE reaffirms its position as a trailblazer in the pursuit of eco-conscious maritime solutions, setting a precedent for industry-wide adoption and emulation.
