Maersk and Amazon have announced a new partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in ocean shipping.

The two companies will use Maersk's ECO Delivery product, which offers emission reductions that are independently verified.

Under the agreement, Amazon will ship 20,000 FFE containers using green biofuel through Maersk's ECO Delivery product. This is the fourth consecutive year that Amazon and Maersk have partnered to use low-GHG fuel options.

Maersk estimates that this purchase will contribute to a reduction of 44,600 metric tonnes of CO2e compared to standard bunker fuel. This is roughly equivalent to burning 50 million pounds of coal.

The ECO Delivery product uses a variety of green fuels, including biodiesel and green methanol. These fuels have lower greenhouse gas emissions than traditional fossil fuels.

In addition to using green fuels, Maersk is also working to reduce emissions from its vessels through other measures, such as energy efficiency improvements and the use of shore power.

This partnership between Maersk and Amazon is a significant step towards decarbonising ocean shipping. The two companies are committed to working together to find ways to reduce their environmental impact.

In addition to using green fuels, Maersk is also working to reduce emissions from its vessels through other measures, such as energy efficiency improvements and the use of shore power.

Maersk and Amazon are two of the largest shipping companies in the world, and their collaboration sends a strong message that they are committed to reducing their environmental impact.

This partnership is also a sign of the growing demand for sustainable shipping solutions. As more and more businesses and consumers demand more sustainable options, shipping companies will need to continue to innovate and find ways to reduce their emissions.
