The centre will help accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the shipping industry

Lloyd’s Register has launched the Maritime Decarbonisation Hub, an initiative intended to help accelerate the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in the shipping industry.

The Maritime Decarbonisation Hub will be led by Charles Haskell, Lloyd’s Register decarbonisation programme manager. The centre will bring together thought leaders and subject matter experts to develop and commercialise future fuels required for decarbonisation. In addition, a steering group of external stakeholders will focus upon the challenges important to the maritime industry and is actively seeking further partnerships.

“The LR Maritime Decarbonisation Hub will provide key stakeholders in the value chain with guidance at every step of their journey as they reduce the carbon intensity of their operations,” said Haskell. “At the same time, it will offer policymakers evidence-based advice on the most efficient means of enabling and supporting this transition.”

The hub is the result of a collaboration between Lloyd’s Register Group and independent charity Lloyd’s Register Foundation.

“By creating the Maritime Decarbonisation Hub we can help address the growing climate emergency and create a more sustainable future for us all,” said Richard Clegg, Lloyd’s Register Foundation’s chief executive. “Lloyd’s Register Foundation is an independent global charity that aims to make the world a safer place, and we see the Maritime Decarbonisation Hub as a key initiative to deliver our social purpose.”
