The GoodShipping Program follows four simple steps
Based on the level of sustainable ambition and/or available budget, the cargo owners determines the desired level of impact by indicating the percentage or part (like trade lane; product category; et cetera) of its ocean freight volume the cargo owners wants to submit into the GoodShipping Programma.
On behalf of the cargo owner, the GoodShipping Program committee enables the fuel switch – replacing heavy fuel oil with sustainable marine biofuel onboard of a preselected container vessel operating on the preferred Good Trade Lane.
The environmental benefits are quantified and protected from double claims. The CO2-benefits are allocated to the participating members. Three statements are awarded to the customer regarding sustainability; carbon accounting; and market impact. The carriers and cargo owners can continue business as usual.
