Maersk sets decarbonisation partnership with China

A.P. Moller-Maersk has signed three separate cooperation agreements with China Classification Society (CCS) aiming to proceed with its decarbonisation strategy.

In particular, the cooperation mainly focuses on scientific and technological innovation projects, life-cycle green fuel availability and infrastructure, carbon-neutral technologies and standards as well as design for zero-emissions vessels.

"Maersk has set a clear and ambitious goal to become carbon neutral by 2050 and China will be a crucial partner towards ensuring that our industry will be able to respond effectively to the climate change challenge," claimed Managing Director of Maersk China Limited, Jens Eskelund.

Maersk partners with China Classification Society on carbon-neutral technologies and standards

The agreement between the Danish logistics group and CCS, which provides classification services to ships, offshore installations and related industrial products through technical rules and standards, will be valid for an initial of two years.

Chairman and President of China Classification Society, Mo Jianhui noted that the partnership with Maersk can develop the right set of standards, rules, and technical solutions for the benefit of the whole industry, and can also "contribute to China’s ambition of realising the pledge of reaching peak emissions before 2030 and carbon neutrality before 2060."

Both parties will invite research institutes to establish a joint force for the project.

Head of Maersk fleet technology, Ole Graa Jakobsen stated that by leveraging CCS’ research capabilities, Maersk could have access to a broader range of high-quality resources to enable its journey towards a zero-carbon future.
