The chemical industry faces many major and complex challenges as it moves towards a sustainable future. Reducing carbon emissions necessitates a balance between investment and access to reliable, validated data; all while maintaining healthy profit margins.
This is where end-to-end integrated logistics partner A.P. Møller-Maersk’s sustainable solutions can help.
Cutting your carbon footprint can only be achieved by making informed decisions. That is why Maersk has collaborated with one of their major customers, Syngenta, to create their Emissions Dashboard, a powerful tool to track and measure your company’s supply chain emissions.
This one-stop-shop consolidates all of your company’s emissions data and offers proactive solutions to help optimise your operations.
Patrick Hore, Global Vertical Head of Chemicals at Maersk, explains, “We have taken the lead in democratising solutions like the Dashboard for the benefit of all our customers, with immeasurable help from Syngenta.
“Together we created Emissions Dashboard to calculate and measure all emissions across all modes of transport and carrier on the end-to-end journey. It’s a simple, transparent process providing accurate, reliable data which can then be used to set targets and in formal reporting.”
“The tool can be utilised in several ways. For example, some companies may wish to analyse their supply chain as a whole, while others may choose to measure only discrete parts, allowing for in-depth visibility wherever it is needed.
“Aligned with the leading industry methodology of the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC)1, the data will allow companies to make informed decisions about their supply chain.”
Hore illustrates, “The data can then be used to take decisive action. For example, could your company move its shipping cargo while emitting less CO2? Could an order be sourced from a closer warehouse? Could air freight switch to a sea/air solution, or travel by ocean only? Is it possible to swap a diesel truck for an intermodal train?
“As a digital platform solution, it allows informed decisions to be made quickly, efficiently and very effectively.”
Ai May Ong, Global Logistics Capacity Manager for Syngenta, sums up the Emissions Dashboard collaboration perfectly. “Maersk and Syngenta have a joint vision to significantly reduce our carbon footprint for transport/logistics.
“Maersk’s new Emissions Dashboard is a key enabler towards that success and represents a step in the right direction. We know that to succeed, we will need high-quality emissions data.
“The clear visuals and insights provided by Emissions Dashboard offer an accurate picture of our emissions, guide our decision-making, and help us identify the most impactful changes we can make. Our collaboration with Maersk makes a difference and moves us towards a more sustainable future, together.”
Maersk ECO Delivery
Maersk ECO Delivery offers a highly cost-effective solution to cut carbon emissions in your ocean logistics. This innovative product replaces fossil fuels with green fuels, while also measuring carbon emissions savings according to GLEC methodologies.
“Maersk then issues a certificate which can be used in company reports to verify that the shipment meets regulatory, market and social requirements. It shows how much green fuel was used, FFEs shipped, and most importantly how many tonnes of CO2 emissions have been saved by your company in a year.”
Maersk ECO Delivery offers immediate emissions reductions in our customers’ supply chains. That is because green fuels, as opposed to fossil fuels, are injected into the vessel network moving the cargo. Compared to carbon offsetting, this offers faster carbon reduction results.
Maersk ECO Delivery has many advantages:
- It offers immediate reductions in carbon emissions, delivering green fuels directly to Maersk’s Ocean network.
- Delivery is easy and flexible. There is no commitment to a long-term investment, and carbon reductions can be applied to specific geographies and products to align properly with your sustainability strategy. ECO -Delivery can simply be added to your contract, providing complete transparency of all costs.
- Credibility for your carbon-cutting initiative is assured through adherence to GLEC methodologies, using ISCC2 certified fuels and feedstocks with proof of sustainability (POS).
- Calculations are based on Clean Cargo methodology, with independent audits carried out by PWC on emission savings according to ISAE 3410.
