Decarbonising our industry
We all have a role to play when it comes to climate change, and as a vessel operator, we can see that the vast majority of our CO2 emissions come from fuel consumption on our vessels. Therefore, we place our efforts on decarbonization, where we can make the most impact.
In 2018, we intensified the decarbonisation journey, introducing a programme to increase energy efficiency awareness among our seafarers. Not to mention, this was ‘simply’ by raising awareness. We can achieve more in this space, and we need to keep a sharp focus on global benefits.
We have also turned our sights onto technology upgrades such as installing batteries, frequency drives and use of biofuel. We consider every step as progress – and even the small changes matter. As part of A. P. Møller-Maersk, we are also involved in the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping which aims to develop the first zero-emission vessel by 2030.
Here we see our capabilities supporting the UN SDGs 12 and 13 – Responsible Consumption and Production and Climate Change.
