Copenhagen, Denmark; 18 April 2023: Technology company ZeroNorth has today announced it is now partnering with the Global Maritime Forum and is a Mission Ambassador for Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping. 

These partnerships highlight ZeroNorth’s role as an active and collaborative organisation that is committed to working together with wider industry stakeholders to reduce barriers to immediate emission reductions.

In its new role as a Global Maritime Forum partner, ZeroNorth is an active member of the organisation’s Short-Term Actions Taskforce, helping to define a new roadmap to driving immediate emissions reductions that can be taken up by shipping companies, including helping to quantify the impact of speed and routing optimisation enabled by ZeroNorth’s vast data ecosystem. 

The membership also strengthens ZeroNorth’s commitment to Global Maritime Forum’s Getting to Zero Coalition. Committing more resources to this powerful alliance of organisations across the maritime, energy, infrastructure and finance sectors which is committed to making commercially viable deep sea zero emission vessels powered by zero emission fuels operational by 2030, driving towards full decarbonisation by 2050.

ZeroNorth has also become a Mission Ambassador for the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping. In this role, ZeroNorth will utilise its deep knowledge on working with data and technology at scale to drive immediate emissions reductions to enable the green transition. 

ZeroNorth’s work with the Global Maritime Forum and the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping builds on its existing partnership with EnergyLEAP to define a standard for noon reporting, and the efforts of ZeroNorth’s Impact Today working group to increase data standardisation across the industry to tackle the fragmentation holding back shipping’s green transition.

 Speaking on the two new partnerships, Lora Jakobsen, Chief Purpose Activist, ZeroNorth said: “These new partnerships with the Global Maritime Forum and the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping demonstrate ZeroNorth’s dedication to driving real impact across the sector. 

“The road to net zero may be paved with good intentions, but we have a shared responsibility to match that ambition with action. By forging partnerships, the shipping industry can work together to find solutions to the challenges holding back decarbonisation and collaborate on initiatives that will accelerate the green transition.”

In the spirit of partnerships and bringing the industry together, ZeroNorth is hosting a public event in Copenhagen to commemorate Earth Day.
