Joining the ‘Getting to Zero’ coalition, DFDS supports accelerating the development and deployment of zero emission vessels by 2030

The Getting to Zero coalition was officially launched on the day of the UN Climate Action Summit of 23 September. It aims to bring together industry leaders to innovate and achieve the IMO’s target of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shipping by 50% compared to the level in 2008.

“We want to be part of developing technology that, by 2030, will allow zero-emission vessels and zero-emission fuels to be technically feasible, safe, and commercially viable for deep-sea shipping. This is supported by the more than 70 organisations which have joined the coalition, and 10 countries spanning five continents have also endorsed it so far,” says Torben Carlsen, CEO of DFDS.
