Danish shipping company Dampskibsselskabet Norden A/S revealed plans to further intensify its efforts to drive the shipping industry towards a cleaner future and offer CO2 neutral transportation.

Namely, the company has established a new, dedicated decarbonization position to drive Norden’s decarbonization efforts and meet the company’s ambitious emission reduction targets.

The new role will accelerate development of CO2 neutral transportation and gather contributions throughout the organisation into a united and efficient effort, the company explained.

“We have come a long way by increasing our fuel efficiency, but it is initiatives such as testing new CO2 neutral fuel, that is needed in order to meet the targets set out,” Jan Rindbo, CEO, said referring to the world’s first test voyage on a large ocean going vessel powered 100% by CO2 neutral biofuel, undertaken by Norden.

The role will be led by Henrik Røjel, who comes from a position as Senior Performance Manager in the company’s Fuel Efficiency team, which he has helped establish.

The decarbonization efforts are focused on short and medium-term projects and will continue to draw on expertise from around the organisation, Norden concluded.
