RightShip and ZeroNorth’s Cross-Platform Pact to Lead Decarbonisation

by Admin
ZeroNorth cross platform Rightship

RightShip, a leading global environmental, social, and governance (ESG) focused digital maritime platform, has partnered with ZeroNorth, a leader in data-driven maritime optimization. Users of either platform will be able to see and utilize RightShip’s GHG 2.0 Rating and ZeroNorth’s advanced CII Emissions Analytics solution. The collaboration will ensure users are provided with a comprehensive view of their performance to enable enhanced decision-making aimed at driving decarbonisation as efficiently and effectively as possible.

ZeroNorth’s CII Emissions Analytics solution is designed to help shipping companies optimize their operations in line with CII requirements while maintaining a focus on commercial performance. It provides customers with full insight into both fleet and vessel CII performance and will proactively alert an operator or manager when a vessel is at risk of becoming non-compliant in the future.

RightShip’s GHG 2.0 Rating rates the emissions output of commercial vessels on a scale from A, most efficient, to E, least efficient. Used as an industry standard, it is the first rating to incorporate EEXI values alongside EVDI and EEDI by calculating and comparing a vessel’s designed efficiency against peer vessels of similar size and type using a speed-corrected methodology.

International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations require that ship owners cut their carbon emissions such that international shipping reaches net zero by, or around, 2050 and the introduction of the EU’s Emissions Trading Scheme for maritime operators means that effective management and reduction of emissions is one of the key challenges facing the sector in 2024.

Steen Lund, CEO at RightShip, stated “By integrating ZeroNorth’s CII insights with RightShip’s GHG rating, we are ensuring that the RightShip platform provides our users with the most comprehensive risk and environmental management solution available for the maritime industry. Collaboration will be essential in ensuring we can achieve a decarbonized future for the sector, and this partnership is going to support our customers in improving their environmental performance through transparency, ensuring that the key tools in driving maritime decarbonization aren’t being used in isolation.”

Nicolai Bendixen, Managing Director of Charter at ZeroNorth, added “Together, we are empowering charters, owners, and all stakeholders in the maritime value chain with immediate, actionable insights into the emission profiles of vessels. This integration ensures not just compliance with evolving environmental regulations but also equips our customers to quickly make informed decisions that align with their sustainability goals. At ZeroNorth, we are proud to stand at the forefront of this transformative journey, alongside RightShip, as we navigate towards a greener, more sustainable maritime future.”

Understanding the Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) in Maritime Sustainability

The Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) serves as a vital metric for the maritime industry, providing insights into vessel emissions performance. Essentially, it measures a ship’s carbon emissions relative to its transport work, offering a clear picture of its environmental impact. By calculating the grams of CO2 emitted per transport work unit, typically per tonne-mile of cargo carried, CII enables stakeholders to assess the efficiency and environmental friendliness of vessels. This metric not only aids in compliance with stringent emissions regulations but also facilitates informed decision-making for companies striving to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future for maritime transportation.
