The Sea Cargo Charter (a global framework for assessing and disclosing the climate alignment of chartering activities) is looking out for more ship owners to come on board and own the green movement.

The members of the charter released the report covering 2022, which mentioned that the emissions data from the shipping company’s activities showed no improvement from 2021 figures, and also highlighted the challenges towards decarbonisation.

Eman Abdalla, vice chair of the Sea Cargo Charter Association insisted more shipowners sign up for the program as the membership is open to not only cargo owners and charterers but also the ship owners, so all with their combined effort unite and work towards one goal, toward a transparent emission reporting system.

Many big names have signed up for the Sea Charter Association such as Cargill, Trafigura, Bunge and Shell, Maersk Tankers, NYK Line, Torvald Klaveness, Eagle Bulk Shipping, Navig8 and Norden.
