Flagship Founders announced the creation of a the start-up zero44, that will help shipping companies, ship managers and charterers monitor and control their fleets’ CO2 emissions.
ero44 uses customised digital solutions to provide shipping companies with comprehensive, daily carbon reporting and offering advice on future strategies.
The commercial impact of the customer’s decision-making is illustrated, plus how they can optimise processes as a result. A range of parameters and options are analysed, including the duration and route of future voyages.
The ship’s existing IMO rating is also used for calculations. Some cases may show the most economic alternative is to pay a surcharge for higher CO2 emissions.
The shipping industry urgently needs solutions to become more sustainable – and not over the coming years or decades, but now
explains Friederike Hesse, Managing Director and Co-Founder of zero44.
Flagship Founders’ third start-up
In addition, Fabian Feldhaus, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Flagship Founders, noted that shipping needs to be fast now and become sustainable. Over the next thirty years, the drive towards carbon zero will be one of the biggest challenges this global industry has ever faced.
