DP World has joined the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping.
Launched in 2020 as an independent, not-for-profit organisation, the Centre is undertaking intensive research and development to find practical ways to decarbonise the maritime industry through several global initiatives.
As a partner, DP World is committing to long-term strategic collaboration and contribution to the development of zero carbon technologies and solutions for the maritime industry. DP World will make several of its specialists available to the Centre in Copenhagen to provide insights to end to end supply chains and help demonstrate and test new solutions across the value chain in a live setting.
Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero Carbon Shipping, said: “Decarbonising the maritime industry is changing an entire business system and it requires completely new supply chains and structures. DP World brings extensive and very valuable expertise in integrated logistics and infrastructure, and they have a deep understanding of the complexity we are facing. Their proactive response to addressing climate change and strong sustainability focus is very aligned with our mission and we look very much forward to having DP World onboard.”
Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, group chairman and CEO of DP World, said: “DP World moves 10 per cent of global cargo and we are excited to be working alongside other leading organisations committed to a collaborative approach to solving the challenges of achieving zero-carbon economies.”
“Our Marine Services business including the Unifeeder Group, represent almost 75 per cent of our carbon footprint through their fleet of vessels and working with the Centre is an important part of developing solutions as we pursue our own net zero target by 2040.”
