Maersk Tankers is establishing a knowledge hub focusing on decarbonisation. The hub will gather intelligence and create solutions to help shipowners and cargo customers cut emissions.
he decarbonisation hub will bring experts, shipowners, cargo customers and other stakeholders together to develop solutions that will reduce emissions from cargo customers’ supply chains and shipowners’ operations.
It will also gather and share external and internal intelligence on regulations and developments in tanker shipping’s decarbonisation, and provide emission transparency on the transportation of cargoes.
The decarbonisation hub is part of our commitment to create a more sustainable path for shipping through sector-wide collaboration
says Christian M. Ingerslev, CEO at Maersk Tankers.
The hub will work with external and internal stakeholders to support the establishment of commercial and regulatory means to cut emissions.
Commenting on the creation of the hub, Eva Birgitte Bisgaard, Chief Commercial Officer at Maersk Tankers, added that it will bring together stakeholders to simplify, provide transparency and create new solutions that will help both shipowners and cargo customers reduce emission.
The decarbonisation hub is expected to be fully established during the coming months.
Earlier this month, Maersk announced new aspiring emissions targets expected to align the company with the pathway to limit global warming to 1.5°C. What is more, the company aims to achieve net zero supply chains to customers by 2040.
The targets go beyond previous efforts to reduce emissions related to the ocean fleet as they cover all direct and indirect emissions across the entire Maersk business.
