The Emissions Dashboard is an analytical data tool showing users the carbon footprint measurements from their entire supply chain, giving a detailed emissions overview whether their products are transported by truck, train, plane or ocean freight vessel. With an emissions overview companies will be better able to publicly disclose emissions information covering all their container flows.
“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,” Vincent Clerc, CEO of Ocean & Logistics at Maersk, said. “An increasing share of our customers are setting ambitious sustainability goals, making emissions visibility critical in order to document performance towards these targets. The Emissions Dashboard will ensure full visibility for our customers to leverage on their journeys toward decarbonized supply chains.”
The Emissions Dashboard conforms to the Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) methodology to calculate emissions and handles emissions data from all carriers involved in the end-to-end supply chain, not only emissions data from Maersk. The analytics provides customers with the chance to get a detailed overview of their opportunities to lower emissions from the transport of their products. The data also creates a solid basis for logistics emissions reporting 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 that have provided valuable feedback, including science-based agricultural technology company Syngenta.
“Maersk and Syngenta have a joint vision to significantly reduce our carbon footprint for transport and logistics,” Ai May Ong, global logistics capacity manager at Syngenta, said. “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. Our collaboration with Maersk moves us towards a more sustainable future.”
The Emissions Dashboard is part of Maersk’s commitment to global sustainability that is shared with an increasing number of customers, consumers and investors alike. The Emissions Dashboard is now available to all larger Maersk customers.
