ZEMBA announces successful completion of inaugural collective tender

The Zero Emission Maritime Buyers Alliance (ZEMBA) has announced the successful conclusion of its first tender for ocean shipping that achieves at least a 90 per cent reduction of greenhouse gases on a lifecycle basis relative to fossil fuel powered service.

Hapag-Lloyd, one of the world’s leading container shipping companies, was selected as the winner of ZEMBA’s inaugural tender.

Through this deal, more than a dozen ZEMBA members have collectively committed to purchase the environmental attributes associated with over 1 billion container-miles of zero-emission shipping on a route from Singapore to Rotterdam, Netherlands in 2025-2026.

At the conclusion of contracting, ZEMBA expects members to collectively avoid at least 82,000 metric tonnes of CO2e over two years through Hapag-Lloyd’s independently certified and exclusively waste-based biomethane service.

“We are proud to have been selected by ZEMBA for this important zero-emission shipping initiative and to be able to provide immediate emission reductions to ZEMBA members,” said Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd.

“To reach our goal of net-zero ship operations by 2045, we need partners like ZEMBA to support us on our decarbonization journey and push the boundaries of what’s possible.

“By offering our service, we aim to reduce greenhouse gas emission significantly and contribute to a greener future for global shipping.”

Late last year, Associated British Ports (ABP) and BW Ideol AS, a pioneer in offshore floating wind, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to investigate the feasibility of serialised production of concrete substructures for floating offshore wind turbine foundations.

More recently, Hapag-Lloyd entered into a transformative contract agreement with Ankeri Solutions to provide an array of tools that aim to simplify and accelerate the decarbonisation process for its fleet.
