Monte Carlo-based ship operator and manager Sea World Management has joined with an environmental solutions consulting group to supervise all future dry-dock works of the fleet to help the company reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and meet the IMO’s 2050 target*.

The goal of the first project is to expand its knowledge and to maximise efficiencies on board as well as to potentially generate carbon credit offsets.

The second project being explored is to establish a carbon credit platform, enabling its customers to access the voluntary credit market to match freight commitments.

“We understand the industry is changing, and we must be willing to change with it and take a direction on this critical issue,” stated Roberto Corvetta, CEO of Sea World Management.

“This is an effort in which an owner/operator can participate by making meaningful, cost-effective improvements to everyone’s benefit,” added Jonathan Koren, head of projects.

* The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set of goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50 per cent by 2050 compared with 2008.
