BIMCO applauds the landmark announcement by Maersk


BIMCO applauds the landmark announcement by Maersk of its ambition to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. 

"It is great to see one of the industry’s giants stepping forward and shouldering this ambitious challenge. Maersk highlights the need for investments into research and technology and the need for collaboration to reach this goal. BIMCO will support this endeavour in any way we can, as it will ultimately benefit the entire industry, and we hope many others will do the same. This kind of investment of time and financial resources is exactly what is required for the shipping industry to eliminate its CO2 emissions," says Angus Frew, BIMCO Secretary General & CEO.
