Hapag-Lloyd and Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping on Tuesday (12 April) said they have formalised their collaboration by signing a Partnership Agreement.
With the agreement, Hapag-Lloyd becomes a Corporate Strategic Partner to the Center, committing to a long-term strategic collaboration and contribution to the development of zero carbon technologies and solutions for the maritime industry.
Hapag-Lloyd, one of the world’s leading container shipping companies, recently announced it is intensifying efforts to reduce its fleet emission by 30 percent by 2030 and aims to be climate-neutral by 2045.
As a partner to the Center, Hapag-Lloyd will be closely involved with the Center team and provide support in realising the Center’s transition strategy.
Additionally, Hapag Lloyd will join the Center Advisory Board providing guidance for transition strategies and further development of the Center’s activities.
Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, said: “Hapag-Lloyd is a perfect match for the Center. They have made ambitious commitments to reduce carbon emissions and are pursuing those goals by making extensive investments in new dual-fueled ships and an impressive energy efficiency program. Their portfolio of know-how is impressive, and our team is looking very much forward to join forces and collaborate. ”
Hapag-Lloyd CEO Rolf Habben Jansen said: “Sustainability is firmly anchored in Hapag-Lloyd and a main pillar of our strategy. We consider decarbonisation to be one of our key tasks, which we can only achieve by working together as an industry.
“By joining forces with the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, we hope to further accelerate the move towards climate-neutral shipping. “
Shipping’s roadmap to decarbonisation
With 100.000 ships consuming around m300Tons fuel p.a. global shipping accounts for around 3% of global carbon emissions, a share that is likely to increase as other industries tackle climate emissions in the coming decades.
Achieving the long-term target of decarbonization requires new fuel types and a systemic change within the industry. Shipping is a globally regulated industry, which provides an opportunity to secure broad-based industry adoption of new technology and fuels.
To accelerate the development of viable technologies a coordinated effort within applied research is needed across the entire supply chain. Industry leaders play a critical role in ensuring that laboratory research is successfully matured to scalable solutions matching the needs of industry. At the same time, new legislation will be required to enable the transition towards decarbonisation.
