World Fuel Services publishes annual Sustainability Report

World Fuel Services has published its 2019 Sustainability Report, highlighting its efforts around key environmental, social and governance areas.

The sustainability report includes World Fuel Services’ carbon footprint, reflecting the company’s global scope 1 and scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for last year, which totalled approximately 60,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions.

The company said that its management team then designed a comprehensive renewable energy and carbon offset programme to make the carbon emissions from its operations net zero for 2019.

In a statement issued yesterday (28 October), Michael J. Kasbar, chairman and chief executive officer, commented: ‘We have dedicated our resources with the aim of creating a more sustainable future for quite some time, and we believe this resonates through our actions, investments, and energy solutions.

‘To further assist in accelerating the world’s energy transition, we are committed to continuing to drive innovative and cost-effective sustainability solutions for our clients, including increasing the availability and affordability of low to zero-carbon energy sources.’
