MAKE YOUR SHIPMENTS SUSTAINABLE

When you ship and source your products overseas, your business is essentially contributing to and making use of the container shipping industry. Did you know that this industry altogether emits more CO2-emissions than all of Germany?

 

The GoodShipping Program is the first sustainable shipping initiative in the world that offers businesses a way to opt out of the polluting fuels that are currently used by container ships. Our goal is to make container shipping more sustainable.

CHOOSE RENEWABLE BIOFUELS

The aim of the GoodShipping Program is to stimulate the use of advanced biofuels in the shipping industry.

 

It provides a way for corporates of all sizes and industries to make their logistics more sustainable and to contribute to the adoption of carbon-free biofuels in the marine market space.

The four pillars of the GoodShipping Program

The GoodShipping Program aims to add value and influence in the following four areas.

fuelmix

CHANGE THE FUEL MIX

Phasing out fossil marine fuels by injecting renewable fuels into the marine market space, to lower global CO2-emissions one ship at a time.

movement

CREATE MOVEMENT

Creating a movement with our customers and with the exposure gained in using sustainable advanced biofuel in the shipping industry.

influence

INFLUENCE DECISION MAKERS

Pushing decision-makers to provide incentives for the marine industry to change the polluting status quo.

rnd

STIMULATE DEVELOPMENT

Accelerate the research and development of new and existing sustainable advanced biofuels.

Why act

1. The marine industry burns the dirtiest fuels in the world. Today, shipping is the 6th-highest emitting “country” and a major source of black carbon emissions. Shipping is a fast-growing source of greenhouse gases, projected to account for 17% of global CO2-emissions by 2050.

 

2. Shipping, despite being a global activity, has not been included in COP21 agreements. IMO has just postponed its Greenhouse Gas Strategy to 2023. While there are solutions, it has still left the industry without an incentive to decarbonize.

 

3. IMO mandated efficiency measures – EEDI for new ships, EEOI and SEEMP for all ships – are by far insufficient to reduce carbon emissions. Adoption of low-carbon fuel is urgently needed.

GLOBAL COLLABORATION

It would be almost impossible for any single corporation to change the sustainable landscape in the shipping industry on its own. Sole businesses may not have the flexibility, knowledge or network in their logistic arrangements to make this happen.

 

The GoodShipping Program is designed so that corporates of any size, geography or operations are able to join, making it the world’s single largest sustainable shipping initiative.
