On July 14, 2022, the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) and the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping formalized their collaboration by signing a Knowledge Partnership Agreement, committing to a long-term strategic partnership to accelerate the marine industry decarbonization efforts.
SSI is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together leading and like-minded organizations across the maritime ecosystem to advance environmental, social and socio-economic issues. sustainability in the shipping industry.
Through this partnership, the two organizations will share their knowledge and best practices to accelerate the transition to zero carbon shipping sustainably, ensuring that pathways to zero emissions (from alternative fuels to improve energetic efficiency) consider sustainability implications beyond CO2.
Among other things, SSI and the center will jointly work on the development of standards for life cycle analysis (LCA) of alternative fuels, which is a key part of the transition.
“We are on the same mission, and we can increase our joint impact through collaboration. ISS has a proven track record of driving change through cross-industry 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” , Bo Cerup-SimonsenCEO of the center, commented.
“Sustainably decarbonizing shipping requires tackling many interrelated challenges – from land-based fuel supply chains, to materials used for shipbuilding, to route optimization that helps address externalities such as poor quality. air in ports”, Andrew Stephensexecutive director of SSI, said.
“These issues can only be effectively addressed by 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.”
