Container shipping firm Hapag-Lloyd has joined the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping as part of its plans to decarbonise its fleet.
The firm will be a corporate strategic partner to the centre, with a place on its advisory board, Hapag-Lloyd said in a statement on its website on Tuesday.
Hapag-Lloyd is seeking to become climate-neutral by 2045.
"Hapag-Lloyd is a perfect match for the Centre," Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO of the decarbonisation body, said in the statement.
"They have made ambitious commitments to reduce carbon emissions and are pursuing those goals by making extensive investments in new dual-fuelled ships and an impressive energy efficiency program.
"Their portfolio of know-how is impressive, and our team is looking very much forward to join forces and collaborate."
