ESG Today writes that the whole process will be done without the release of any emissions, thanks to the hydrogen propulsion system. Nike officials say that the vessel was originally running on diesel, but has been recently retrofitted to now function on hydrogen fuel cells.
According to company representatives, over the course of a year, the container ship, which will begin sailing in June this year, will reduce Nike's footprint by around 2.000 tons of CO2.
As far as local operations go, the American sportswear company plans to transport products with the help of hydrogen-powered ships, which will replace around 14.000 truck journeys per year. Besides this, Nike also plans to use more electric vans for transport and reduce its air freight dependance.
