Clarksons, the world’s leading provider of integrated shipping services, partners with climate-tech company CHOOOSE to enable carbon mitigation solutions for the global maritime industry.
With the launch of a new carbon platform for the maritime industry, Clarksons can enable its clients to further reduce the carbon footprint of their shipping activity. The platform provides seamless access to trusted carbon calculations and offsetting options through certified, high-impact climate projects.
“Our strategic partnership with CHOOOSE allows us to strengthen the integrated approach to shipping decarbonisation for our clients and provide to them broader options in the mitigation of both footprint and compliance risk”, says Roger Horton Chief Commercial Officer (Global Broking) at Clarksons.
"Decarbonisation of the maritime sector is a global challenge, and the partnership between Clarksons and CHOOOSE is an important step in making actionable solutions for the entire industry available today. We're proud to support the journey ahead, as Clarksons' industry leadership is both inspiring and hugely important to drive real change throughout global shipping ", says Andreas Slettvoll CEO at CHOOOSE.
Organisations participating in the CHOOOSE platform can access a company portal to review monthly emissions reports, view detailed order history and analysis, access in-depth project content and track their company's cumulative impact.
The platform enables organisations to support carbon mitigation projects that either reduce, capture, or avoid carbon emissions. The projects are selected by carbon professionals and verified by the most comprehensive certification standards, such as the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Gold Standard. All projects also support multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The carbon platform is already in use by global enterprises across several sectors such as mining, oil and gas. Companies interested in participating in the programme can learn more and enroll here.
