DATE 22.09.2021

Reaffirming its long-standing commitment to sustainability, Höegh Autoliners becomes a signatory of the “Getting to Zero” coalition’s Call to Action for Shipping Decarbonisation.

Höegh Autoliners has signed Getting to Zero Coalition’s Call to Action to accelerate the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. The Call to Action includes three demands to enable this: commit to decarbonising international shipping by 2050; support industrial scale zero emission shipping projects through national action; and deliver policy measures that will make zero emission shipping the default choice by 2030.

Andreas Enger, Chief Executive Officer says,

In our commitment to build a more sustainable maritime industry and combat climate change, we are accelerating our decarbonisation efforts. We have set an ambitious net zero emissions target by 2040 and we believe we will achieve this through investments in future technology and newbuilds.

Andreas continues,

To drive the maritime industry to a zero emissions future, collaboration will be key. Through joint action and partnerships, we stand stronger and better equipped to succeed in our long-term climate ambition.

Höegh Autoliners has a solid history on emission cuts and long-term efforts to combat climate change. Since 2008, the company has achieved an improved carbon intensity of 37 per cent in its fleet and is well on track to meeting the IMO’s 2030 40% intensity reduction target.

The recently launched Aurora class design is a crucial step in the company’s sustainability commitment. The vessel has been designed with flexibility in mind and is the first in the segment to be ready for operation on carbon-neutral Ammonia.
