In fact, the " Transform to Net Zero" project intends to develop and deliver research, guidance, and implementable roadmaps to boost decarbonization.

Behind the initiative are A.P. Moller - Maersk, Danone, Mercedes-Benz AG, Microsoft Corp., Natura &Co, NIKE, Inc., Starbucks, Unilever, and Wipro, as well as Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).

The overall target of keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees can only be reached through strong alliances across sectors and businesses. We are therefore happy to join Microsoft and other global companies in the Transform to Net Zero initiative.

...Søren Skou, CEO of A.P. Moller - Maersk, said.

What is more, partners will pay attention to activate the business transformation needed to achieve net zero emissions no later than 2050, in addition to driving broader change with a focus on policy, innovation, and finance.

In light of the situation, Brad Smith, President, Microsoft, noted:

No one company can address the climate crisis alone. That’s why leading companies are developing and sharing best practices, research, and learnings to help everyone move forward. Whether a company is just getting started or is well on its path, Transform to Net Zero can help us all turn carbon commitments into real progress toward a net zero future.

For the records, the initiative is expected to complete its goals and the outputs of its work by 2025.

Overall, speaking of a net zero future, Maersk recently launched the "Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center", a research center which goals to lead the way for decarbonizing shipping.
