RightShip has announced a new collaboration with global innovation platform Plug and Play to focus on finding innovative solutions to promote Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) transparency across the maritime industry.
RightShip is an ESG-focused digital maritime platform providing expertise in global safety, sustainability and social responsibility practices.
The new partnership will see RightShip collaborate with identified start-ups to scale their solutions and enhance their reach within the maritime industry, including anything from solution co-creation, data provision and pilots, to proof of concepts.
Plug and Play will curate access to suitable emerging maritime focused technology start-ups, with a specific focus on sustainability.
Tarun Mehrotra, Chief Strategy Officer at RightShip, said: “For us, this exciting collaboration enables and accelerates our ability to understand the landscape of emerging technology solutions around key ESG themes, with a view to starting partnerships or co-creating and scaling solutions.”
According to a statement, the collaboration will allow RightShip to support the sustainability and social responsibility practices on shore and at sea.
“Our collaboration with Plug and Play also allows us to focus on specific sub-themes such as crew welfare, emissions monitoring and provenance transparency, to search for emerging solutions that can be scaled within the maritime industry,” added Mehrotra.
RightShip’s GHG Rating provides a transparent method to assess the relative efficiency of vessels and compare a ship’s CO2 emissions relative to peer vessels of a similar size and type.
