P&O Maritime Logistics, a DP World Company, has received the ISO 50001 accreditation from ABS QE.
ISO 50001 is an internationally recognised standard that provides a framework for organisations to establish, implement, maintain, and improve an energy management system.
This standard is designed to help organisations follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, use, and consumption.
As an ISO 50001 accredited company, P&O Maritime Logistics places a strong emphasis on sustainability, forging close partnerships with regulatory authorities across various regions.
Short-term objectives involve optimising processes, enhancing crew training, exploring specialised hull paints for reduced friction, and implementing advanced onboard voyage planning technology to monitor fuel consumption efficiently.
As outlined in the recently published whitepaper titled “Developing P&O Maritime Logistics’ Decarbonisation Pathway”, a key component of the company’s decarbonisation pillars includes reducing marine fuel consumption to drive efficiency and equipment electrification.
By implementing more efficient and controlled energy use, P&O Maritime Logistics aims to reduce carbon emissions, supporting global efforts to combat climate change and ensure a greener future for generations to come.
Martin Helweg, Chief Executive Officer at P&O Maritime Logistics, commented: “It’s important that we have the right infrastructure in place to continue to create value for all our stakeholders.
“With the ISO 50001 accreditation, we now have a critical tool to help deliver on our commitment to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship.”
In the same week, DP World Marine Services announced it decreased its carbon footprint by more than 16 per cent in 2023 compared to its baseline of 2,118 kilotonnes carbon dioxide equivalent (ktCO2e) in 2019.
