A.P. Moller – Maersk (Maersk) announces new aspiring emissions targets expected to align the company with the Net-Zero criteria of the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) pathway to limit global warming to 1.5°C. They include a societal commitment to act now and drive material impact in this decade and a commitment to deliver net-zero supply chains to customers by 2040. The targets go beyond previous efforts to reduce emissions related to the ocean fleet as they cover all direct and indirect emissions across the entire Maersk business.

Soren Skou, CEO of A.P. Moller – Maersk, said, “As a global provider of end-to-end logistics services across all transport modes, it is a strategic imperative for Maersk to extend our net-zero ambition to the total footprint of the business. The science is clear; we must act now to deliver significant progress in this decade. These very ambitious targets mark our commitment to society and to the many customers who call for net-zero supply chains.”

2030 targets for significant absolute emissions reductions

Tangible near-term targets for 2030 are set to ensure significant progress on curbing direct Maersk emissions already in this decade.

These include a 50% reduction in emissions per transported container in the Maersk Ocean fleet and a 70% reduction in absolute emissions from fully controlled terminals. Depending on growth in the ocean business, this will lead to absolute emissions reductions between 35% and 50% from a 2020 baseline.

Roadmap to deliver net-zero by 2040

“Our updated targets and accelerated timelines reflect a very challenging yet viable pathway to net-zero, which is driven by advances in technology and solutions. What is needed is a rapid scale-up which we will strive to achieve in close collaboration with customers and suppliers across the entire supply chain,” said Henriette Hallberg Thygesen, CEO of Fleet & Strategic Brands, A.P. Moller – Maersk.

As recommended by SBTi, Maersk will go above and beyond the 1.5°C-aligned targets over the decade and invest in building a portfolio of natural climate solutions that will result in around five million tons of CO2 savings per the year 2030.
