Lloyd’s Register (LR) announced the launch of a decarbonization advisory centre in Athens, Greece, to assist its clients in meeting current and future environmental challenges. The new initiative is part of LR’s commitment to accelerating the sustainable decarbonisation of the maritime sector with the aim to support South European shipowners and operators in navigating compliance around impending EEXI requirements, adopted in last MEPC.
As informed, a team of LR experts will offer a portfolio of advisory services, using advanced tools and best practice, to help address current and future greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets.
Theodosis Stamatellos, LR’s Marine & Offshore South Europe Area Manager, said: ”
This advisory centre is another strong demonstration of our commitment to deliver the highest level of support to our clients, responding to their sustainability challenge and leading this change for the industry.”
Andy McKeran, LR’s Maritime Performance Services Director, commented that this initiative will assist operators towards the decarbonisation challenge with advice, information and expertise.
Recently, in last October, LR announced the launch of its Maritime Decabonisation Hub while also other organizations are taking action towards decarbonization. For example, Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller Maersk has recently delegate to a dedicated team to accelerate decarbonization efforts while Total is the latest member to join the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping as a strategic partner, in order to accelerate carbon neutral shipping solutions and get to Net Zero. In 2019, ABS launched the ABS Global Sustainability Centre aiming to help maritime transition to a sustainable, lower emissions industry
