Maritime UK to work with Carbon13 to accelerate maritime decarbonisation
A common voice for the UK's maritime industries, Maritime UK is forming a collaboration with Carbon13, the climate crisis venture builder, to help net-zero entrepreneurs.
The appetite for green maritime technology is seen as a global opportunity for the British economy, with demand for carbon-neutral solutions growing exponentially in 2021. According to the pair, real progress towards maritime decarbonisation is therefore crucial.
However, though tremendous progress has been made, much more needs to be done to minimize emissions and build solutions that are carbon-neutral.
There is already the talent, the ambition and the dedication to net zero, but the road to creating startups that will develop into the next success stories of the UK still requires a great deal of support.
Maritime UK has, therefore, launched Cabon13. The eight-month program helps exceptional individuals to initiate highly scalable and investable projects, and one of the focus sectors is the maritime industry.
Building a start-up that can reduce pollution by 10 million tonnes ensures that the start-up wants to help 100 million customers reduce their footprint by 1% or 10 million customers by 10% in reality. But if the start-up is enterprise-oriented, it would help the top 20 emitters minimize their footprints by half a million tons each, or by 10,000 tons each for the Fortune 1000.
