Shell Marine will provide marine lubricants to Carnival’s global fleet of 89 ships

Carnival Corporation has awarded Shell Marine with a multi-year contract to provide marine lubricants to its global fleet of 89 ships.

“Shell Marine is working with our customers to help the shipping sector decarbonise,” said Joris van Brussel, general manager of Shell Marine. “This is in line with Shell’s ambition to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner, in step with society and our customers. Through our marine lubricants and integrated service offering which includes technical and digital services, we’re helping customers like Carnival optimise engine efficiency, thus reducing a ship’s environmental impact.”

The cruise company will also offset the carbon dioxide emissions from the lubricant products it purchases through Shell’s nature-based carbon credits.

“Addressing climate change is a top priority for us and we are committed to delivering a cleaner, more efficient and sustainable cruise experience,” said Michael McNamara, vice president of global fuel sourcing for Carnival. “Aligning the supply chain with our decarbonisation strategy was a key consideration and Shell’s carbon-neutral marine lubricants support our efforts to reduce our carbon emission by 40 per cent by 2030. We have made significant progress and welcome this initiative from Shell Marine on our decarbonisation journey.”
