Marine biofuels supplier GoodFuels and Norwegian environmental non-profit organization ZERO focusing on sustainable biofuels in the maritime supply chain.
nder the partnership, the organizations will cooperate on establishing framework conditions for sustainable biofuels in the Nordics, in a bid to accelerate the shift to a renewable transport sector.
The collaboration will also emphasize on driving increased demand for renewable shipping solutions, by analyzing policymaking, engaging with decision-makers, and advocating for uptake of sustainable biofuels with the industry and political leaders.
At GoodFuels, we collaborate with movers and shakers to create real impact together that we are all seeking for now in the maritime decarbonization space,
…stated Dirk Kronemeijer, Chief Executive Officer and Founder at GoodFuels.
ZERO also joined GoodFuels’ independent sustainability board, along with NGOs and academics, working together to ensure true sustainability in GoodFuels’ fuel products in line with the maritime industry’s decarbonization efforts.
We are very eager to work together with GoodFuels to drive a shift to renewable solutions in one of the most fossil intensive sectors in Norway, namely maritime sea transport,
…said Anne Marit Post-Melbye from ZERO.
Currently, there are several shipping companies testing biofuels as a potential alternative fuel for lowering GHG emissions, but there is a need for better understating the cross-sector and cross-industrial demand for sustainable biofuels, according to a new report by the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) released this week, which found that policies are needed to direct the sustainable biomass resources into the various industrial sectors that would require what is available.
