This is the decade of action if we are to succeed in ensuring a green future for our planet.
2022 was another year of floods and fires and stark warnings from experts that more action is needed. A.P. Moller - Maersk is committed to lead the decarbonisation of logistics. It is only fair to take that responsibility as a key part of the industry responsible for TK k tonnes of annual emissions.
In January, A.P. Moller - Maersk updated its ambitious climate targets, including the objective to reach net zero emissions by 2040. By doing so, this company acts responsibly and in accordance with customer demand to help businesses across the globe in their efforts to cut emissions. The targets are driving business decisions every day.
A.P. Moller - Maersk continued to invest to reach its ambitious targets. The company entered into nine green fuel partnerships in 2022, with the intention to source at least 750,000 tonnes of green fuel by 2025. The green fuel will be necessary for the new green vessels. In September, A.P. Moller - Maersk announced the purchase of six new vessels, adding to the 13 already in the order book. The first green vessel will have its maiden journey in 2023.

Governments, businesses, and citizens must all work together to not only set targets and raise ambitions, but also to act accordingly to meet those ambitions. Urgency is needed for the world to turn the tide on climate change and meaningful progress is needed. With a war on European soil, high inflation in North America and Europe and economic turmoil hitting many economies, some might say it is not the time to invest in things like green fuels. But there will probably never be a convenient time to tackle a challenge of this magnitude. A.P. Moller - Maersk is focusing on implementing green solutions of today while continuing to innovate and develop tomorrow’s solutions.
Taking care of today while preparing for tomorrow is a core value at A.P. Moller - Maersk and when it comes to preparing for tomorrow, not many things are as relevant as dealing with the ongoing climate emergency. It is a business opportunity and a duty for a company as A.P. Moller - Maersk to lead the decarbonisation efforts in the industry. That’s what gets us up in the morning.
