Vitol signs up to ZeroNorth platform

ZeroNorth has signed a long-term strategic partnership with energy and commodity company Vitol, to provide Vitol with a range of ZeroNorth services to deliver greener operations in shipping and chartering.

The deal will see Vitol gain full access to the ZeroNorth software platform, while ZeroNorth customers will in turn gain access to Vitol’s carbon reduction systems and bunkering services, through the subsidiary Vitol Bunkers.

In the near term, ZeroNorth says it will use lessons from the collaboration to support the rollout of its new global electronic bunker delivery note (eBDN) system. The deal will also support Vitol’s continued regulatory compliance with maritime environmental regulations, and help the organisation manage its EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) exposure by ensuring verified data quality and consolidation for more accurate emissions reporting.

“We are delighted to be able to announce this new strategic partnership and full platform deal with Vitol. The news aligns with our ambitious strategy in two key areas,” said Søren Meyer, CEO at ZeroNorth.

“Firstly, we are once again able to prove our platform’s pedigree to key industry players and bring them into our ecosystem, to the benefit of their business and the planet. Secondly, and more importantly, it enables us to deepen our collaborative ties with true commodities experts, powering up our teams and capability to deliver the products and services needed for a profitable and decarbonised maritime industry.”
