Decarbonisation

Committed to becoming fully carbon neutral by 2040.

Svitzer is aiming to reduce the CO2 intensity of its entire fleet by 50% by 2030. This will pave the way for fully carbon neutral operations just ten years’ later in 2040, which is in line with A.P. Moller-Maersk’s ambition. This target will require all possible solutions to be investigated to ensure success.

“We are proud to unveil our strategy to become fully carbon neutral by 2040. We are not committing to these ambitions lightly and understand that it will require leadership and collaboration with our customers, suppliers, industry peers, and ports around the world to ensure success. Widespread changes and investment into the way we work, the fuel we burn, and the composition of our fleet will be required.”

Kasper Friis Nilaus, CEO

Our decarbonisation strategy is centred around three focus areas: Behaviour, Equipment and Fuel.

By adopting this strategy we can make changes immediately that impact in the short term, whilst developing solutions that deliver further reductions in the future. This is critical to ensure we investigate and mature the technologies we need to achieve our goal while bringing down emissions now.

We have learned that we can lower our fuel consumption by asking our crew to change their behaviour when they mobilise to and from a job.
Whilst behavioural changes can give us immediate impact, we need to ensure that the assets we use are as efficient as possible and ‘fit for the future’. This ‘Equipment’ aspect of our strategy focuses on maximising the efficiency of our current vessels and designing for the future.
The final aspect of the strategy is Fuel. This is divided into two aspects, utilising those fuels available to us now and planning for developments in future fuels. ​
