HUB Ocean and Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping (the Center) formalized their collaboration by signing a Knowledge Partnership Agreement. The partnership has the potential to ignite real climate action.
UB Ocean’s flagship product, the Ocean Data Platform, aggregates big ocean data from multiple sources. This accelerates the creation of new analytical models for deeper insight into sustainable solutions for ocean use, such as renewable energy, green transportation and science-based ocean management.
Combined with the Center’s ongoing work in designing green corridors, Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of the Center, said that:
The collaboration between HUB Ocean and the Center will co-create new data-based solutions that can help promote and accelerate the sustainable decarbonization of shipping
In welcoming the Center to the HUB Ocean Partner Network, Kimberly Mathisen, CEO of HUB Ocean, added that HUB Ocean wants “to create new analytical models to speed up the critical work on green corridors and deliver insights on other vital aspects of biodiversity and nature.”
