Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is expected to be benefitted from the Ship Review platform developed by Green Maré Services (GMS) and German’s Scope Group.
The world's largest shipping company in terms of TEU capacity reportedly invests in the Ship Review platform, a service that helps the shipping fleets to measure their environmental performance, using a rating system.
“In addition to our massive investment in lower-carbon technologies and fuels, MSC continues to focus on improving energy efficiency. We have decided to leverage the Ship Review platform from Scope Group to provide better visibility on the environmental and broader sustainability performance of ships in our fleet. We want to assure our clients that ships operated by MSC consistently meet the regulatory requirements and minimise the impact on the environment,” said Diego Aponte, MSC’s president.
This platform assesses the environment and the sustainability of over 70,000 ships and is the first product to present Carbon Intensity Indicator ratings.
“With the help of the Scope Ship Review, we can better evaluate and report on the environmental and broader sustainability performance of our fleet,” noted Aponte, who added, “We will encourage our customers, charter tonnage providers, and other stakeholders to join MSC in this initiative.”
In fact, MSC seems to believe so much in the underlying idea of Ship Review, that it has acquired a minority stake in Portugal's GMS.
“We are very excited that MSC will take a minority stake in our company and support Ship Review’s provision of pollution and emissions fleet data. MSC’s cooperation will help us validate the platform’s estimated data and improve information quality,” commented Milton Gouveia, managing director of GMS.
