MOL joins decarbonisation efforts at GCMD

Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has announced the signing of a five-year Impact Partnership agreement with the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD), which will see the organisations work together on energy saving technologies for vessel deployment.

“We are very pleased to be a partner of one of the most important global coalitions,” said Toshiaki Tanaka, Representative Director, Executive Vice President Executive Officer, and Chief Operating Officer of MOL.

“We will make our biggest effort to contribute and accelerate progress towards the net zero future in maritime industry, together with GCMD and all its partners.”

As an Impact Partner of GCMD, MOL will contribute and collaborate in GCMD projects, including offering access to vessels, and providing operating data and evaluation reports so that internal lessons can be shared publicly and used for future trials.

“We are proud to have MOL, one of the leading shipowners in Japan, come on board as an Impact Partner,” said Professor Lynn Loo, CEO of the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation.

“We are excited to tap on MOL’s track record in developing technical energy efficiency measures to broaden our perspective as we scope an initiative to help increase industry adoption of measures that can increase fuel efficiency of ships.”
