The Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) on Thursday (14 July) joined the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping as Knowledge Partner, committing to a long-term strategic partnership to accelerate the maritime industry’s decarbonization efforts.
SSI is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together leading and likeminded organizations across the maritime ecosystem to advance environmental, social and socio-economic sustainability in the shipping industry.
Among other things, SSI and the Center will jointly work on developing standards for life cycle analysis (LCA) of alternative shipping fuels.
In welcoming the SSI to the Center, CEO Bo Cerup-Simonsen said: “We are on the same mission, and we can increase our common impact through collaboration.”
“The SSI has a proven track record in driving change through cross-sectoral collaboration, and by combining our strengths, knowledge, and determination to accelerate the transition, we can be even more effective in driving real change in the maritime industry,”
In joining the Center, Andrew Stephens (FCMA), Executive Director of the SSI, said: “Decarbonizing shipping sustainably requires addressing many interlinked challenges – from land-based fuel supply chains to the materials used for shipbuilding, to route optimization that helps address externalities like poor air quality in ports.”
“These issues can only be tackled effectively through partnering and collaborating with others, and we at the Sustainable Shipping Initiative look forward to working with the Center and its community of members and stakeholders in the pursuit of zero carbon shipping by 2050.”
