Non-profit organisation Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping on Monday (2 November) introduced its Board of Directors.
The Center was announced in June 2020 by a group of leading global shipping entities committing themselves to decarbonisation of the shipping industry. It was made possible by a DKK 400m (USD 60 million) donation by the A.P. Møller Foundation.
The first task of the Board is to set the long-term strategic direction for the Center and define its overall framework across activities, projects and organisation with the aim to facilitate the transition to a carbon free global shipping industry, it said.
The inauguration of the Board marks the finalization of the legal registration of the Center as an independent, not-for-profit organisation.
With its newly obtained status as an independent legal entity the Copenhagen-based Center is now officially operational.
“To realize our long-term ambition to decarbonize global shipping, a wide range of industry stakeholders must come together to collaborate,” said Chairman of the Board Søren Skou in welcoming board members.
“Our board members hold profiles with excellent capabilities and profound understanding across this diverse landscape.
“As an independent organization we are well positioned to take up the challenge of facilitating this vital shift for global trade and in welcoming my fellow board members, I am pleased that we can now initiate our work for this ambitious initiative.”
