The Leave Less Travel Program offers corporate and cargo customers effective options to offset or reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to business travel or freight transportation and reduce their carbon footprint.

Bolloré Logistics has agreed to compensate a significant portion of its GHG emissions associated with its projected shipments with Air Canada Cargo with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), representing a purchase of 620,000 litres in 2022. This participation in Air Canada’s Leave Less Travel Program will enable Bolloré Logistics to reduce its Scope 3 GHG emissions.

“At a time when climate awareness is at the heart of the strategy of many companies, Bolloré Logistics is proud to join a program that is financing the future of low-carbon air industry. Through this initiative with our partner Air Canada, we contribute our scope 3 CO2 reduction targets and offer more sustainable transport solutions to our clients,” said Patrick Lafrance, Managing Director of Canada at Bolloré Logistics.

Bolloré Logistics is committed to reducing its Scopes 1 and 2 emissions by 30% by 2027 and cutting by 30% by 2030 (relative to 2019) its Scope 3 CO2 emissions generated by the execution of transport services.

To cope with his objectives, Bolloré Logistics announced in 2021 the launch of AIRsaf, a new offer based on the use of SAF or sustainable aviation fuel to offer its customers the best eco-responsible approach to air freight by reducing carbon emissions by up to 80%. This solution, provided at a cost price, relates to one-off or regular shipments made by several airline companies on all geographical routes.
