NORDEN joins shipping decarbonization coalition, continues biofuel tests

September 28, 2019 |

In Denmark, NORDEN signed up to become a member of the Getting to Zero Coalition. Alongside a continued focus on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, NORDEN recently created a dedicated decarbonization unit and continues to test the use of biofuel.

“We wish to increase the awareness of the need to develop real alternatives that can make the development of vessels with zero emissions possible. We in NORDEN have already set sail with various initiatives such as biofuel to help the agenda on its way, and we see the establishment of this new coalition as another step. A step we are proud to take with other highly reputed members from other related industries, sharing the common ambition of zero emission vessels,” says NORDEN CEO Jan Rindbo.

By supporting the Getting to Zero Coalition, members show they are committed to the important decarbonization of deep-sea shipping, working towards the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from shipping by 50% by 2050 as agreed by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in 2018.
