RSB to develop first-of-its-kind biofuels book and claim system for Maersk

July 7, 2019 |

In Denmark, A.P. Moller – Maersk is rolling out a flagship project with Switzerland-based RSB to pass emissions savings from its use of alternative fuels on to its clients, with retail giant H&M among the first to benefit. RSB is developing a ‘book and claim’ system that will allow Maersk to reliably and credibly pass on greenhouse gas savings to customers as part of its drive to reach carbon neutrality.

“The system being developed by RSB will enable Maersk’s customers to be credited for these savings on the transportation of goods, lowering the carbon footprint of the final product in shops,” according to the RSB press release. “This will be a powerful tool for these customers to make claims about their lowered carbon footprint based on a truly credible and practical system developed the world’s most trusted sustainability standard.”

While the fuel in the pilot is not currently certified to RSB’s best-in-class sustainability standard, as an RSB member and partner Maersk aspires to RSB certification for the full supply chain of its fuel.
