“Decarbonisation is a global challenge, and our industry has to play its part. The challenge is too large for any one company to solve, so collaboration is essential. This centre will build on the positive steps taken by many maritime players around the world, and Singapore’s position as a leading maritime centre, to help the industry transition to a low-carbon future.”
Andreas Sohmen-Pao, Chairman, BW Group

“The DNV Foundation is driven by a desire to help society tackle major global transformations. Transforming the world energy system is one of the biggest challenges currently confronting society, and shipping must play its part. But doing this cannot be achieved without industry wide collaboration. That is why we have taken the decision to become a founding member of the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation in Singapore. We believe our deep expertise complements Singapore’s status as a world-leading maritime ecosystem for sustainable energy and climate change. Working together, I am confident the GCMD will deliver a global impact on decarbonization while further bolstering our purpose of safeguarding life, property and the environment.”

Remi Eriksen, Group President and CEO of DNV Group and DNV Foundation

“Maritime leaders have a responsibility to implement emission-lowering solutions available today while simultaneously developing solutions for tomorrow. The formation of a maritime decarbonisation centre is a major milestone, combining forces of both public and private industry players. It proves that the sector is willing to band together and take ownership of environmental preservation for future generations. EPS is proud to be part of this partnership, and we look forward to collectively developing an effective path towards total decarbonisation.”
Cyril Ducau, CEO, EPS
