Commenting on Mr. Toft depart, Søren Skou made the following statement:

I have worked with Søren for many years, and I appreciate Søren’s many contributions to A.P. Moller - Maersk. He leaves an agile and strong operating organization and we all wish Søren the very best in the future


Before this development, it was announced that Søren Skou will lead the climate partnership with the Blue Denmark, in attempts to achieve a 70% reduction of GHG emissions by 2030, in comparison to 1990; The Climate Partnership has to propose ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from shipping both in domestic waters and globally.

The background of the collaboration supports that "if the plan is to succeed, every man must be on deck."

Moreover, the Climate Partnership with Blue Denmark will find a number of sectors were CO2 emissions can be reduced, a step that will result to the launch of new technical solutions and fuel types, while also focus on the manufacturers supplying shipping equipment.

A goal is that switching to a greener future, Denmark will provide more and new jobs in the country.
