To start the New Year as we mean to go on, our first Face-2-Face presentation of 2016 was with none other than Maersk Line, one of the world’s largest container shipping companies.
Mersey Maritime provided a broad sector update including latest news on the various exciting plans Mersey Maritime is working on; our guest presentation on the subject of Sustainability within the Shipping Industry, covering how Maersk is leading the way in terms of energy efficiency, Co2 reductions and carbon pacts. Over the past decade Maersk have raised the bar for both energy efficiency and Co2 reductions, reducing their relative emissions by 40% and on average more than 10% ahead of the rest of the industry. They have recently signed carbon pacts with some of their bigger customers on the continent and are in the process of signing their first with a UK customer.
