HMM launches GHG emissions calculator

HMM launches Supply Chain Carbon Calculator for monitoring GHG emissions

Hyundai Merchant Marine (HMM) has announced the launch of a new Supply Chain Carbon Calculator, which allows customers to enhance their carbon footprint visibility across the entire logistics journey.

This new digital platform provides customers with analytical data on total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated from Place of Receipt to Place of Delivery, including door locations.

HMM’s Supply Chain Carbon Calculator follows an industry-accredited methodology for inland and ocean transportation. The ocean-leg emissions have employed the Clean Cargo methodology, which provides a set of industry average emission factors for maritime container transport per trade lane.

For inland transport, emissions are calculated in line with the Global Logistics Emission Council (GLEC) framework, a globally recognised methodology for reporting logistics GHG footprint.

With the Supply Chain Carbon Calculator, the emission would be expressed by selecting the emission type between Well-to-Wake (WTW) and Tank-to-Wake (TTW), reported HMM.

Customers can mark the estimated emissions on the bill of lading, and the relevant certificate can be issued based on actual transport data.

HMM expects this digital tool to create synergy with its Green Sailing Service, assisting customers in reducing their Scope 3 GHG emissions by sailing with low-carbon fuels.

A HMM official said: “There has been a growing interest in sustainability and green transportation solutions, accelerating the need for reducing emissions.

“We will continue to seek a better way to ensure full visibility of tracking carbon footprint, thereby making significant headway in reaching carbon neutrality.”

In September 2023, HMM announced the usage of a sustainable marine biofuel in a trial run aboard its 6,400 TEU containership HMM Tacoma in Busan, South Korea.

More recently, HMM announced that it will relaunch the Intra-Asia Cross Network (ICN) service linking major ports in Korea, North China, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia.
