ClassNK extends ‘Zero-Emission Transition Support Services’
More than 120 countries and regions have pledged to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, and governments have made their GHG reduction targets more ambitious. Meanwhile, sustainable finance for pursuing zero-emission is gaining more attention in economic activities. In the maritime industry as well, initiatives toward zero-emission are accelerating in both the public and private sectors, and the time has come to systematically manage GHG emissions from shipping.
Leading Classification Society ClassNK has endeavored to provide a comprehensive menu of services to support customers involved in the shipping business pursue zero-emission while planning and managing GHG emissions in their daily business operations, and decided to extend them as “Zero-Emission Transition Support Services”.
• GHG Emissions Management System Development & Certification
• GHG Emissions Management Tools
• GHG Emissions Verification & Assessment
• GHG Emissions Reduction Support
Effective 1 Oct. 2021, ClassNK restructured its organization and established “Zero-Emission Transition Center” and “Marine GHG Certification Department” to strengthen its support to customers working on GHG reduction. Zero-Emission Transition Center develops overall business strategies related to GHG, and handles planning, implementation, and control of each business. Marine GHG Certification Department integrates responses to certification needs related to GHG reduction, including IMO short-term measures.
