About us

With 70.000 ships globally consuming m300Tons fuel p.a. the shipping-sector accounts for around 3% of global CO2 emissions. It is labelled a hard-to-abate sector in need of an estimated USD 6 trillion investment through to 2070. However, the industry has made a strong commitment to reduce CO2 emissions significantly towards 2050.

The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping is real climate action. It is a not-for-profit, independent research- and development center creating an industry wide transition strategy by providing overview of the technical solution space and the strategic swing factors:

Our vision is a decarbonization of the maritime industry

Our mission is to be a visible and significant driving force in the global maritime decarbonization journey. 

With partners from leading organizations across the world we will accelerate the development and implementation of new energy systems and technologies.

The Center was established in 2020 with a donation from the A.P. Møller Foundation.

Our Approach to Decarbonization

The role of the Center in the transition is to create clarity of future pathways and confidence to accelerate investments

With our partners we will create the needed overview of opportunities for new systems of fuels and technologies across the supply chain. The Center’s R&D framework will assess the identified solutions, gaps and risks across technology pathways.

At the same time, we will create the strategic transition narrative, create confidence among investors and regulators and help drive the sector transformation in the context of climate change and the global energy transition.

We are currently in the process of further developing our R&D framework, designing our technology programs as well as initiating the first projects with our partners.
