MSC joins in zero carbon meeting led by The Prince of Wales
On 2 February, MSC and other shipping lines joined His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in the "Getting to Zero Coalition" for a virtual roundtable discussion on how to accelerate shipping decarbonisation.
As a coalition member, MSC helps promote cross-sector sharing of information and collaboration, building on its own efforts to minimize fleet pollution. The discussions discussed how the Sustainable Markets Initiative of HRH The Prince of Wales could help support the attempts of the shipping industry to address barriers to decarbonisation.
Coordinated by the Global Maritime Forum, the Getting to Zero Coalition brings together a broad range of more than 170 companies to work together to implement the targets of the UN IMO to minimize shipping greenhouse gas emissions.
The coalition members are working together to try to bring commercially viable zero emission deep sea vessels into the global fleet by 2030 to speed up the transition to a zero-carbon future, an ambition that is consistent with what MSC has been working towards in recent years.
MSC is planned to invest in its fleet in order to boost energy efficiency and help reach the overall objective of a zero-carbon future.
The company is also actively exploring a number of alternative fuels and innovations, pioneering the use of up to 47% mixed biofuels for bunkering and recently joining the Hydrogen Board.
