Data for Decarbonization Program

Decarbonization is one of the biggest challenges the maritime ecosystem has ever faced – but it might also present great opportunity. Together we can do more than any one party alone. Join us to power the maritime industry on the path to decarbonization.

The bridge between action and inaction is data visibility

The maritime ecosystem is no stranger to complex and ever-changing regulations, and now decarbonization is top of mind for all stakeholders. But as maritime trade continues to grow and with alternative fuels still far from adoption, we need to maximize our current resources today to make a change. So where do we start? The bridge between action and inaction is data visibility – in the right context. This is something that can only come with collaboration and on-the-ground insights. The result will help the industry drive data-driven business models to benefit carbon management and economic growth, as well as help meet the future of carbon trading standards.

Many vessels today are equipped with IoT devices capturing data from vessels, but this requires investment in hardware installation and maintenance. Just as importantly, some of the parameters are simply not easily measured. 


Know how your fleet is ranked to other comparable fleets in regards to carbon emissions performance. Know how you can optimize your fleet to reduce fuel consumption in a scalable way.

The decision to select a vessel to ship cargo from A to B rarely includes a detailed consideration of the emissions associated with the voyage.  


Accurately predict future emissions in the run up to confirming the charterparty, and make that an integral part of the contracting process. Leverage data visibility to plan and optimize your voyages to include carbon emissions considerations.

There is not enough transparency in the projected route for every shipment, no matter what liner it is shipped on. 


With one accessible platform for emissions performance, every shipper and freight forwarder can analyze, predict, and price their carbon footprint.

Today, emissions data is not easily available to integrate into financing screening processes in an efficient or automated way. 


Know how to independently verify the maritime environmental impact of financing decisions. Support financing decisions that influence the move to a lower carbon future.

If one nation reduces its carbon emissions by 50% and the rest of the world doesn’t – the impact still won’t be enough. Each country must play a role in how data is used to improve decarbonization efforts.


By monitoring the vessels that enter national waters with accurate and actionable data, nations can not only manage emissions but provide incentives, like in the form of port dues, for less polluting vessels.
