GCMD and Hapag-Lloyd enter partnership to drive shipping’s decarbonisation agenda

Singapore, 17 March 2022 – In yet another boost to shipping’s decarbonisation agenda, the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) and global liner shipping company Hapag-Lloyd have signed a strategic partnership agreement committing to cooperate on efforts contributing to maritime decarbonisation. The Centre and Hapag-Lloyd will focus on collaboration to amplify the impact of the solutions and accelerate the time to deployment and adoption.

Shipping’s decarbonisation efforts will greatly benefit from this partnership with both organisations aligned on their strong on-going commitment in protecting the environment, and helping advance the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. Hapag-Lloyd has recently announced ambitious decarbonisation targets, making it a natural partner for the Centre. It is intensifying efforts to reduce the emissions of its entire fleet by 30% by 2030 compared to 2019 and is further aiming to be climate-neutral by 2045, ahead of the IMO 2050 target.
