About us

As our planet faces unprecedented environmental challenges the time has come for the shipping sector to step up decarbonization.  

The Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping is a non-profit, leading edge research and development center embarking on an ambitious journey driven by real action to steer the shipping sector on the course to zero carbon emissions. Today.

With partners from leading organizations across the world, mobilizing the best minds from science, engineering and business, we are one powerful alliance, committed to accelerating the development and implementation of new energy systems and technologies.

Our mission is clear, we want to decarbonize the global shipping sector. Our legacy will be a proud sector bringing about lasting change for our planet and generations to come.

The Center is made possible by a donation from the A.P. Møller Foundation.


Through a portfolio of research projects and activities, we will help create solutions and drive the transformation towards decarbonizing shipping. With our partners we will create the needed overview of opportunities for new systems of fuels and technologies across the supply chain and build confidence in the most promising solutions; while at the same time, create the transition narrative and help drive the sector transformation in the context of climate change and the global energy transition.

Stay tuned, more information to come
