Oil and Gas giant Total has joined the ‘Getting to Zero Coalition’ to help decarbonise the global maritime industry.
The coalition, consisting of more than 120 organisations from across sectors, is aimed at reducing greenhouse emissions from shipping by at least 50% by 2050, as well as deploying deep sea, zero-emission vessels by 2030.
As part of the coalition, Total will provide expertise on fuels, marine lubricants and ship-based zero-emission technologies.
Patrick Pouyanné, President and CEO of Total, said: We share the ambition to get to net zero emissions by 2050, together with society, for our global operations.
“By joining the Getting to Zero Coalition, we want to push innovation and foster collective actions with all the stakeholders of the industry, thus contributing more efficiently to the reduction of the carbon footprint of maritime transport and its energy value chains.”
