Decarbonization & Responsibility

Maritime transportation accounts for about 3% of global CO2 emissions e.g. 1000 million of equivalent tons of CO2

As a point of reference, other transport modes account for: 

  • rail: 0.2% of global CO2
  • road: 4.9% of global CO2 
  • air: 0.5% of global CO2

Decarbonizing maritime transportation must be done from a warehouse-to-warehouse standpoint by taking into account first/last mile delivery. As such, 25% of sea cargo is delivered by road to the ships (in but accounts for twice the greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) of the maritime transportation. We believe that, in order to realize the full potential of maritime transportation decarbonization, it is necessary to think of it from a local perspective in close contact with the local authorities.
