Stimulate cleaner ocean shipping

Convinced of the urgency to act on climate, a group of Dutch multinationals - FrieslandCampina, Heineken, Philips, DSM, Shell and Unilever - all members of the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition (DSGC) – joined forces with A.P. Moller - Maersk to take a tangible step towards the decarbonization of ocean shipping.

In March a biofuel pilot was launched for ocean container freight of a Triple E ship Mette Maersk, using up to 20% sustainable 2nd generation biofuels on trade lane Rotterdam-Shanghai-Rotterdam (arriving back on 20th June).

The DSGC and Maersk will present their key findings and learnings during SAIL op Scheveningen at the seminar: How collaboration can enable sustainable innovation in shipping?”, which will be chaired by Mr. J.P. Balkenende.

The DSGC and Maersk invite relevant key partners to participate in this exclusive seminar on how to stimulate and scale up sustainable innovations.

The seminar takes place during the international maritime event “SAIL on Scheveningen” where all global Tall ships will come for the Liberty Tall Ships Regatta. Many other ships and sail innovations will also be shown. You are invited to visit them after the seminar.
