Biofuel is a major step towards to reduce the carbon emitted in the shipping industry. Along with GoodShipping, our ambition is to promote the use of biofuels throughout the shipping industry. To avoid that biofuels are transported to each port of departure, we work with the mass-balance principle: We calculate the volume of emissions per shipment and offset it with biofuel on a different route.
This means that customers who choose biofuel, may not use it on their specific shipment, but rather contribute to an overall reduction of emissions of the shipping industry. We have to play as a team to overcome this challenge and we love that. When our customers choose biofuels, they earn an accredited certificate to display on their own website or platform. This solution is currently being developed, and will be live in 2022.
