Shell Marine on Tuesday (12 January) said it has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide marine lubricants to cruise line operator Carnival Corporation’s global fleet of 89 ships.
Carnival will also offset the carbon dioxide emissions from the marine lubricants it purchases from Shell, through Shell’s nature-based carbon credits.
“Shell Marine is working with our customers to help the shipping sector decarbonise. This is in line with Shell’s ambition to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner, in step with society and our customers,” said Joris van Brussel, General Manager, Shell Marine.
“Through our marine lubricants and integrated service offering which includes technical and digital services, we’re helping customers like Carnival optimise engine efficiency, thus reducing a ship’s environmental impact.
“We are delighted that our integrated approach and carbon-neutral marine lubricants can help bring customers like Carnival a step closer to achieving their sustainability ambitions.”
“Addressing climate change is a top priority for us and we are committed to delivering a cleaner, more efficient and sustainable cruise experience,” added Michael T. Mcnamara, Vice President Global Fuel Sourcing, Carnival.
“Aligning the supply chain with our decarbonisation strategy was a key consideration and Shell’s carbon-neutral marine lubricants support our efforts to reduce our carbon emission by 40% by 2030. We have made significant progress and welcome this initiative from Shell Marine on our decarbonisation journey.”
