Probunkers has become a member of the “Getting to Zero” Coalition, a multi-stakeholder environmental partnership committed to delivering zero emission vessels and meeting the IMO’s 2050 goal of cutting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 50 per cent compared with 2008.
Aiming to lead the change towards clean marine fuels through establishing a global network of liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering infrastructure, probunkers will contribute to the Coalition’s think tank through the developments in the LNG and bio/synthetic LNG as fuel market.
“The Coalition’s goals and vision are spreading through the maritime industry and more stakeholders understand that contributing to and keeping up with the IMO’s targets is the only viable way forward. We, at probunkers, feel obliged to participate in paving this way through supporting the adoption of LNG as marine fuel, one of the dominant solutions to reach the goal of ZEVs in the near future”, said probunkers’ chief executive officer, Alexander Prokopakis.
The Coalition members form a collection of industry stakeholders varying from financial institutions to shipowners sharing the core values of commitment to the goal of zero emission vessels, safety, technological neutrality, action orientation as each member can affect the industry, commercial viability, inclusivity and openness.
