The Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) announced today the signing of a five-year Impact Partnership agreement to promote maritime decarbonization.
s an Impact Partner of GCMD, MOL will utilise its expertise developed over their long history and make various contributions and collaborations through its participation in GCMD’s projects, including providing access to vessels, operating data and evaluation reports so that internal learnings can be shared publicly and used for future trials.
We are excited to tap on MOL’s track record in developing technical energy efficiency measures to broaden our perspective as we scope an initiative to help increase industry adoption of measures that can increase fuel efficiency of ships.
… said Professor Lynn Loo, CEO of the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation
In an exclusive interview with SAFETY4SEA, Professor Lynn Loo had stated that since decarbonisation is a global agenda that will require all hands to be on deck, cross-sector collaboration will help to integrate our efforts along with those of others.
Recently GCMD has been collaborating with industry parties and expanding its efforts to decarbonize shipping both via signing a five-year Strategic Partnership agreement with NYK and joining the Momentum for the Clean Energy Marine Hubs (CEM Hubs).
We will make our biggest effort to contribute and accelerate progress towards the net zero future in maritime industry, together with GCMD and all its partners.
