BHP has announced a partnership with DNV to implement the Veracity cloud platform, to collect and manage data for use in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting and analysis from BHP’s chartered vessels.
The project aims to support BHP in its ongoing efforts to see Scope 3 GHG emissions from its chartered vessels reduced, a process for which DNV has built a standardised system on Veracity that will be implemented by BHP for all of its maritime freight operations.
“BHP recently announced a goal to pursue net zero Scope 3 emissions by 2050 and DNV’s Veracity platform will be a key enabler in our maritime decarbonisation journey,” said BHP’s Head of Maritime Sustainability and Supply Chain Excellence, Sarah Greenough.
“Veracity creates visibility and assurance of the GHG emissions reported by vessel owners and operators in our supply chain. The platform will enable us to have more targeted conversations on decarbonisation and compliance, analyse performance against industry benchmarks and measure progress towards our Scope 3 goals.”
“DNV’s regulatory experience and industry reach, and Veracity’s leverage of verified and quality-assured emissions data for more than 10,000 vessels, made them a logical partner of choice.”
The system being deployed will collect data from the charterer’s enterprise system, which is then validated, processed and quality-assured according to parameters agreed upon with BHP. This enables production of Scope 3 GHG emission reports as required for external reporting.
