Leading industry groups set up Sea Cargo Charter to promote the decarbonisation of shipping

The goal is to give the tools to choose a maritime transport in line with climate targets

Seventeen shipowners and primary groups industries in the energy, agriculture, mining and commodity trading produce bulk goods transported mainly by way of Sea Cargo Charter, whose goal is to to align the chartering decisions of the naval units to bulk transport with environmental behavior responsible for promoting the decarbonisation of the sector shipping. The Sea Cargo Charter intends to establish a common basis for quantitative evaluation and communicating to stakeholders if maritime transport operations are aligned with defined climate targets.

"A standard procedure for calculating gas emissions "It's a very good thing," said Jan Dieleman, president of Cargill Ocean Transportation and president of the Sea Cargo editorial team Charter - will simplify some of the complexities often associated with this calculation. It will encourage an approach more transparent and consistent with emissions monitoring, which will be a key element in making the more sustainable maritime transport."

"Sea Cargo Charter," said Johannah Christensen, "Sea Cargo Charter, Director-General of the Global Maritime Forum - allows leaders to different industries to use their influence to driving change and to promote the green transition of the shipping by choosing a maritime transport in line with the agreed climate targets rather one that is not.'

The 17 founding groups of Sea Cargo Charter are: ADM, Anglo American, Bunge, Cargill Ocean Transportation, COFCO International, Dow, Equinor, Gunvor Group, Klaveness Combination Carriers, Louis Dreyfus Company, Norden, Occidental, Shell, Torvald Klaveness, Total, Trafigura, and Orsted.
