HAMBURG : Hapag-Lloyd has confirmed additional climate targets, aiming to reduce its CO2 emissions by 30% until 2030, compared to 2019 levels, and become climate-neutral until 2045, making its contribution to the Paris Climate Agreement.

Although the container ship is still the most efficient means of transport when it comes to transporting large quantities of goods, shipping in total still accounts for around 3% of global CO2 emissions, according to the German container carrier, which believes that “climate change is and will continue to be the greatest challenge of our time.”

Hapag-Lloyd has also joined the Global Maritime Forum’s “Getting to Zero Coalition”, which is working to ensure that commercially viable ocean-going vessels powered by zero-emission fuels enter into service by 2030.

More than 200 companies from the shipping, energy, infrastructure and finance sectors have become members of the coalition, which is also being backed by key governments and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

“The Getting to Zero Coalition represents yet another pillar of our commitment to climate protection,” said Hapag-Lloyd.
