We are your partner in decarbonisation

We have spent a significant amount of time developing knowledge and opinions on the decarbonisation of the maritime industry. We have built up knowledge on regulations, cost and availability of alternative fuels and cost of retrofitting and newbuilding to alternative fuels. We benefit from insights across the industry, a unique knowledge platform and involvement in various decarbonisation partnerships and initiatives. We believe collaboration between all stakeholders is the most essential part of the transition towards a decarbonised future. Our partners are, among others, McKinsey & Company with whom we developed a Fleet Decarbonisation Optimizer Tool that provides a tailor-made roadmap for cost-effective decarbonisation of entire fleets. We are also the first shipbroking company to become a member of the “Getting to Zero Coalition” and we are committed to the IMO’s target of fully decarbonising the industry by 2050.

Why no shipowner can ignore the green transition

The shipping industry must embark on a journey towards a net zero-emission future. Currently, the shipping sector produces 2-3% of global CO2 emissions, and the maritime trade volume is expected to further increase in the next decades. That is putting high pressure on a hard-to-abate sector, that heavily relies on the use of fossil fuels. Greenhouse-gas emissions from shipping need to be reduced, and the infrastructure for new technologies must be created – making decarbonisation in shipping a global challenge.  

The industry has made a commitment to reduce carbon emissions significantly by 2050. Reducing emissions, finding alternative fuels, and adapting technology will be the major challenge of the coming years. The transformation will have significant effects on ships, ports and operations and all stakeholders within the maritime industry. 

Carbon Capture Transport and Storage (CCTS)

Maersk Broker Advisory Services also focus on what role stakeholders in the maritime industry can have in the commercialisation of the CCTS value chain. The CCTS technology could play a major role in the green transition as it aims at reducing the release of CO2 into the atmosphere by transporting and storing it in deep geological formations which trap the CO2 permanently. 

For further exploration of the CCTS technology, Maersk Broker Advisory Services has received a grant from den Danske Maritime Fond (the Danish Maritime Fund). Our Decarbonisation Team will use this support to soon be able to provide stakeholders in the maritime industry with a comprehensive outlook on the business opportunities within the value chain of CCTS.
