A.P. Moller-Maersk (Maersk) will launch a new ‘Emissions Dashboard’ as part of efforts to help customers cut their carbon footprint.
In a statement, Maersk said the dashboard will act as an analytical data tool which will give a detailed emissions overview whether a customer’s product is transported via truck, plane or vessel. It will allow customers to disclose emissions information to the public where necessary.
Designed as a one-stop-shop, the Emissions Dashboard conforms to the GLEC* methodology to calculate emissions and it handles emissions data from all carriers involved in the end-to-end supply chain – not only emissions data from Maersk.
The analytics provides customers with the opportunity to get a detailed overview of their opportunities to lower emissions from the transport of their products.
At the same time, the data creates a solid basis for logistics emissions reporting which can be used in corporate sustainability reports.
Approximately 50% Maersk’s 200 largest customers have set – or are in the process of setting – ambitious science-based or zero carbon targets for their supply chains.
The Emissions Dashboard has been tested by 10 key customers of Maersk who have provided valuable and positive feedback. Among these is a leading, science-based agricultural technology company, Syngenta.
Vincent Clerc, CEO of Ocean & Logistics, Maersk, said, “As our customers trust Maersk with a wider part of their supply chains, they also expect from us that we assist their climate actions through sustainable end-to-end offerings.
“An increasing share of our customers are setting ambitious sustainability goals, making emissions visibility critical in order to document performance towards these targets.
“The Emissions Dashboard will ensure full visibility for our customers to leverage on their journeys towards decarbonised supply chains.”
Ai Ma Ong, Global Logistics Capacity Manager, Syngenta, also commented, “Maersk and Syngenta have a joint vision to significantly reduce our carbon footprint for transport and logistics.
“We know that to succeed, we will need high-quality emissions data. The clear visuals and insights provided by the 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 moves us towards a more sustainable future.”
