MAN Energy Solutions joins Getting to Zero Coalition

MAN Energy Solutions has joined new climate group Getting to Zero Coalition with an aim to develop zero-emission vessels.

MAN Energy Solutions has joined new climate group Getting to Zero Coalition with an aim to develop zero-emission vessels.

The coalition objectives are in line with MAN Energy Solutions’ strategy to grow its operations with sustainable technology and solutions.

The Getting to Zero Coalition aims to develop zero-emission vessels and make them commercially available by 2030.

It was formed as a result of a collaboration between the Global Maritime Forum, the Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum.

MAN Energy Solutions senior vice-president and Two-Stroke Business leader Bjarne Foldager said: “Joining the Getting to Zero Coalition makes perfect sense for us as system technologies that help our customers to reduce emissions and lead the way to a carbon-neutral future already form a significant part of our business strategy.

“We understand the need to work with a wide group of industry partners to achieve this strategy and the Getting to Zero Coalition is, therefore, a perfect match. In shipping, MAN Energy Solutions has publicly spoken out in favour of a ‘maritime energy transition’ for some time now, which draws on the increased use of low-emission fuels.

“For us, the path to decarbonising the maritime economy starts with fuel decarbonisation, which will be a natural step toward the development of zero-emission vessels.”

The alliance comprises of a broad group of companies such as equipment manufacturers, shipowners, energy companies and providers of fuel, ports, customers and more.
