RightShip launched its new Maritime Emissions Portal (MEP), to help ports and terminal operators accelerate ship-based emissions reductions initiatives with more accurate and granular data.
he first sustainability assessment tool of its type, MEP is the first part of a planned broader Environmental Social Governance (ESG) solution for the ports and terminals sector from RightShip.
MEP combines Automatic Identification System (AIS) movement data and RightShip’s proprietary vessel insight data to give users insights into their emissions inventory and air quality through heatmaps and filters including ship type, age, point of interest and emissions type.
Vessels act very differently in a port compared to the open sea, which creates a distinct emissions profile. This is why we developed a port-specific methodology to help operators tackle the challenges specific to them
Kris Fumberger, Head of Sustainability and Environment at RightShip, explains.
Operators can then use this insight to inform decarbonisation and air quality initiatives, as well as help them to meet reporting requirements in line with government and industry emissions reduction targets. The tool helps them to:
- Measure and track port shipping air emissions.
- Transparently meet reporting standards of regulations & initiatives.
- Give robust, dependable and flexible data.
- Address environmental and health concerns & pressure from stakeholders.
- Design port emission reduction and decarbonisation strategies.
- Attract sustainable financing.
