The world’s largest shipping company has set out a vision to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050, with an intermediate goal of having carbon neutral vessels commercially viable by 2030. 

This is a real game changer - container ships produce 3% of the world's carbon emissions and Maersk's pledge to abandon fossil fuels and focus on finding a different way to power their assets is huge. 

The Copenhagen-based company has invested $1 billion in the past four years on energy efficient solutions but this ambitious goal sends a strong signal to the maritime industry to better protect the planet. 

Fascinated to see the acceleration in new innovations and adaption of new technology now this target has been set.
