  • Marine Industry - Environmental Impact

    According to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the maritime industry is a significant contributor to global carbon emissions. The shipping sector alone is responsible for 2-3% of the world's total carbon emissions. The sector's substantial contribution to the global carbon footprint has underscored the urgency for a closer examination of sustainable practices and innovative solutions to address these issues.

    • The maritime industry signicantly contributes to global carbon emissions.
    • Logistics operations emerge as a major source of emissions within the maritime sector.
    • Marine logistics software emerges as a transformative solution, optimizing operations, reducing fleet size, and ultimately curbing emissions.

    IMO set ambitious targets to reduce the industry's total annual greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050, compared to 2008 levels. The baseline year of 2008 was chosen as it represents a benchmark for measuring emission reductions.
