Maersk Line raises CO2 emission target

Maersk Line has reached its 2020 CO2 target having reduced its emissions by 25 %. Now, the carrier raises its target to 40 percent. It will demand hard work but it is both ambitious and realistic, Maersk Line Chief Operating Officer, Morten Engelstoft, states.

The CO2 emissions reduction has been much faster than expected for Maersk Line. In fact, the container carrier has already reached its 2020 level and is thereby eight years ahead of plans. Therefore, the carrier now raises its target to 40 percent compared to the emission level in 2007, says Morten Engelstoft, Maersk Line Chief Operating Officer.

“So far we have had a target to reduce emissions by 25 % by 2020. We have already reached this mark and now, we raise the target to 40 % in order to constantly challenge ourselves in finding the ways in which we become more energy efficient,” he tells ShippingWatch.
