Danish Shipping has made an agreement with Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping to become a partner.
In October 2020, Maersk McKinney Moller Center launched Zero Carbon, whose vision is to convert shipping to become CO2-neutral.
The center will focus on the development of low- and zero carbon technologies through joint projects and activities including (but not limited to) the development of systems needed to handle new green fuels or solutions to improve overall energy efficiency.
Danish Shipping Companies and their members have long been advocates for a more sustainable development of the maritime industry. As a partner, Danish Shipping brings important competencies into our joint work on the development of industry standards and regulatory frameworks, which together are crucial for accelerating the transition to CO2 neutral shipping
says Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping.
In addition, Anne H. Steffensen, CEO of Danish Shipping, also believes that Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping will be a key player in the work for CO2-neutral shipping.
“Mapping of technological and regulatory barriers to reducing CO2 emissions from shipping, for which the center must come up with solutions, must be brought into the work with the regulation of shipping. Here at Danske Rederier we have many years of experience from the IMO and the EU, and we work closely with relevant ministries. We are part of a global network of shipping companies and also know from there what is happening in the green transition globally. With that in mind, we can see a strong collaboration with the center for us
added Anne H. Steffensen.
With this collaboration, Danish Shipping will make knowledge available, and at the same time it will receive knowledge back about projects and development.
We will work together to adopt regulation of shipping emissions, which is based on thorough independent analyzes and which is reasonable and the same for everyone. And then we will be a link between the center and our many members, who each work to reduce CO2 emissions
Anne H. Steffensen concluded.
