Viking Line, ESL Shipping and Attracs have joined forces with Åbo Akademi University and PBI Research Institute to reduce emissions and improve transparency in the industry.
he aim of the project, called DEOS (Driving Emissions Out of Shipping), is to develop emissions reporting models to enable cargo owners to understand the emissions of their supply chain and select verified low emission transportation that give them and actors in their supply chain a competitive advantage.
Magnus Gustafsson, Head of Research at the Laboratory of Industrial Management at Åbo Akademi University, underlines the pressing need for this project:
By opting for low emission transportation and bringing emissions from shipping into the consumers’ awareness, cargo owners can support their customers in making better choices in their everyday life
The project is scheduled to last until spring 2022 and is sailing forward with full speed.
