NORDEN establishes targeted decarbonisation role
NORDEN has established a new, dedicated decarbonisation position to drive NORDEN’s decarbonisation efforts and meet the company’s ambitious emission reduction targets. The new role will accelerate NORDEN’s development of CO2 neutral transportation to customers and gather contributions throughout the organisation into a united and efficient effort.
NORDEN is committed to taking a leading role in the decarbonisation agenda for the shipping industry in order to meet the ambitious target set by UN's International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to at least halve the sector's greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The role will be led by Henrik Røjel, who comes from a position as Senior Performance Manager in the company’s Fuel Efficiency team, which he has helped establish. The position will see him drive the company’s decarbonisation agenda, to accelerate efforts in developing CO2 neutral transportation to customers and to ensure all initiatives on decarbonisation are coordinated and prioritised.
The decarbonisation efforts are focused on short and medium-term projects and will continue to draw on expertise from around the organisation.
NORDEN’s ambition is in line with IMO’s GHG reduction targets: a relative reduction of 40% by 2030 and an absolute reduction of 50% by 2050.
NORDEN believes these reductions can only be met by a combination of fuel efficiency improvements and means of ‘low carbon propulsion’.
Decarbonisation is a high priority for NORDEN, aligned with the company’s CSR strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 9 towards building resilient and sustainable infrastructure.
