Mitsubishi joins Planning and Design Center for Greener Ships

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, a unit of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, has become a member of the Planning and Design Center for Greener Ships.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, a unit of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, has become a member of the Planning and Design Center for Greener Ships.

The Planning and Design Center for Greener Ships has been established for planning and proposing next-generation green ships through the integration of the total expertise of Japan’s shipbuilding industry.

Mitsubishi, along with other members, will pursue the development of advanced environmental performance-enhancing technologies for achieving carbon neutrality and targeting near-zero carbon emissions.

It will also be involved in activities, focusing on research and development related to the commercialisation of sustainable ships.

As a member of the Planning and Design Center for Greener Ships, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will expand its marine and related technologies while also promoting the development of advanced environmental performance-boosting technologies with an aim to respond to the tightening environmental regulations.

Approximately nine domestic shipbuilders, including Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, have already joined or announced their intent to join the organisation.

More participation in the Planning and Design Center for Greener Ships will be sought among inland companies involved in the marine business and shipping.

To achieve the medium to long-range targets of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the centre will initially strive to prepare a detailed proposal on next-generation ships that will reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
