A.P. Moller – Maersk has launched a new digital tool, the Emissions Dashboard, that consolidates emissions data across all transport modes and carriers and allows customers to optimise their emissions footprint.
The analytical tool provides customers with carbon footprint measurements from their entire supply chain, giving a detailed emissions overview whether their products are transported via truck, train, plane or vessel.
Vincent Clerc, CEO of ocean and logistics at A.P. Moller – Maersk, said: “As our customers trust Maersk with a wider part of their supply chains, they also expect from us that we assist their climate actions through sustainable end-to-end offerings.
“An increasing share of our customers are setting ambitious sustainability goals, making emissions visibility crucial in order to document performance towards these targets.”
With an emissions overview, companies will be able to disclose emissions information to the public, covering all their container flows.
The Emissions Dashboard conforms to the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) methodology to calculate emissions and handles not only emissions data from Maersk but from all carriers involved in the end-to-end supply chain.
In addition to giving customers a detailed overview of their opportunities to lower emissions from the transport of their products, the data creates a solid basis for logistics emissions reporting which can be used in corporate sustainability reports.
Around half of Maersk’s 200 largest customers have set – or are in the process of setting – ambitious science-based or zero carbon targets for their supply chains.
The Emissions Dashboard has been tested by 10 key customers of Maersk, among these science-based agricultural technology company Syngenta, and have provided valuable and positive feedback.
Ai May Ong, global logistics capacity manager at Syngenta, said: “Maersk and Syngenta have a joint vision to significantly reduce our carbon footprint for transport and logistics.
“We know that to succeed, we will need high-quality emissions data. The clear visuals and insights provided by the Emissions Dashboard offer an accurate picture of our emissions, guide our decision-making, and help us identify the most impactful changes we can make.”
The Emissions Dashboard is part of Maersk’s commitment to global sustainability and is now available to all larger Maersk customers.
