LC Packaging strengthens the BICEPS Network

29 Mars 2022

LC Packaging International is joining forces to accelerate the transition in the global shipping sector towards more sustainability. This month, LC Packaging International has officially joined The BICEPS Network: a demand-driven global network that drives sustainable change in the shipping sector through the collaboration of shippers. BICEPS stands for “Boosting Initiatives for Collaborative Emission-reduction with the Power of Shippers.”

By establishing a global network with sufficient volume in the market it can exert influence and drive change. Moreover, through an active dialogue between supply and demand of shippers with ship owners, chain partners and solutions providers, BICEPS aims to accelerate and scale up market innovations and sustainable initiatives. Specifically, the network aims to create impact on:

  • the reduction of emissions of CO2, Sulphur and black carbon;
  • the treatment of (on-board) waste;
  • the impact of biodiversity of a.o. ballast water, and;
  • the end-of-life cycle programs for vessels.

Joining forces with peers

To really make an impact, companies must join forces. Next to LC Packaging, the collaboration of shippers includes shippers such as FrieslandCampina, Lamb Weston / Meijer, DSM, Almatis, Elkem, Farm Frites, Corbion and VION Food Group.

“LC Packaging has set itself the goal to reduce its GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 in its value chain. This includes an emission reduction related to transportation in particular sea freight. By joining the BICEPS Network, we can learn and join peers in lobbying towards more sustainable shipments, understand more on the sustainable developments in the shipping sector and make use of the BICEPS rating system to make more sustainable shipping choices.” Abhishek Kumar, Supply Chain Manager, LC Packaging International.


The BICEPS Network is a network of global shippers (cargo owners) joining forces to accelerate the decarbonisation of ocean shipping. They use the power of demand via their global procurement processes to stimulate and reward ocean carriers to take action in the implementation of sustainability solutions. The Biceps Network accelerates the dialogue between relevant actors in the chain to boost adoption of market-ready sustainable innovations in the shipping sector.

The shippers in the network team-up to organise the power of demand for sustainable improvements in ocean shipping. The BICEPS Network has developed a Rating System which ranks the ocean carriers on their sustainability performance. This Rating System supports decision making in the shippers’ global ocean freight procurement processes, for taking sustainability into account.


The BICEPS Network aims to boost innovations in the shipping chain. By organizing an active dialogue between supply and demand, we stimulate and accelerate the scaling up of market-ready innovations and sustainable initiatives. The focus is on boosting the pilot to market uptake (showcases), which will contribute significantly to sustainable improvements in and by the shipping industry.

The network is an initiative by global shippers/cargo owners who collaborate in stimulating ocean carriers to move faster in adopting sustainable practices in their operations. The BICEPS Network is governed by a non-profit foundation with a board consisting of representatives (global supply chain & logistics managers) of the participating companies.
