Regulatory needs

Addressing GHG

emissions with biofuels

Significant measures are being introduced to mitigate emissions from the maritime sector, such as the European Commission’s “Fit for 55” and the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) ‘Carbon Intensity Index’ (CII) regulation. These regulations oblige all shipping companies to achieve strict reduction targets.

Replacing fossil-based fuel with biofuel blends

Replacing traditional maritime fossil fuels, such as heavy fuel oil, with our easy-to-use drop-in biofuels (compatible with existing engines) reduces the greenhouse gas intensity of a ship’s fuel consumption.

Lowering your emissions with biofuels will not only improve your CII score but also minimize organization’s need to purchase EU ETS emission allowances.

Voluntary offsets

We provide high-quality voluntary carbon credits to our clients who want to take further climate action by offsetting their residual emissions while supporting meaningful, sustainable development initiatives all over the world.

As the EU ETS will also include the shipping sector in 2024, companies will need to provide enough allowances to cover all their ships’ carbon emissions for that year.

Voluntary corporate climate action

Climate action in

the value chain

2021 brought tremendous growth in voluntary corporate climate action around the globe. There was exponential growth in Net-Zero targets and SBTi commitments.

Many major manufacturing organizations have made public commitments to decarbonize through CDP, the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), and RE100.

With evolving supplier requirements, many of these organizations are including emissions footprint in their supplier quality requirements.

As a result, tier, 1 supplier of these organizations is following suit by making their own decarbonization commitments.

Initiatives targeting zero-emission shipping

Cargo owners for

zero emission

In 2021, a non-governmental organization along with several climate-forward brands with large emissions footprints from shipping created a specific target to transition all of their shipping to vessels that use zero-carbon fuel by 2040. This is a very clear and public signal to shipping partners that these companies are actively seeking to decarbonize the maritime shipping industry.
