Lookout Maritime forms strategic partnership with Anglo-Eastern to advance sustainability

Lookout Maritime, a new company formed to drive decarbonisation and wider sustainability within the shipping industry, has announced the formation of a strategic partnership with ship management company Anglo-Eastern.

The partnership will support ship owners with both the prioritisation and the implementation of sustainability initiatives. The service provided draws on the deep operational, technical and practical experience of Anglo-Eastern combined with the wider strategic context and implementation support provided by the domain experts at Lookout Maritime.

The initial focus of the partnership will be on delivering a sustainability review at a fleet level for ship owners, including the EEXI (Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index) and CII (Carbon Intensity Indicator). Detailed recommendations on identified conversion candidates are provided after consideration of a range of factors and drivers. This includes the future tradability of the vessels and other commercial implications, as well as a business case if required.

The experienced project teams at Anglo-Eastern will then manage the conversion project on behalf of the owner which provides added confidence in the outcome.

Commenting on the partnership, Martin Crawford-Brunt (pictured), CEO of Lookout Maritime said: “Lookout Maritime is excited to launch this strategic partnership with Anglo-Eastern to support the wider adoption of sustainable business practices in the maritime industry. Anglo-Eastern is an ideal partner… particularly given their vast operational experience, extensive technical competence, and ability to implement practical solutions on the ground through more than 30,000 employees both at sea and ashore.”

Commenting on the partnership, Bjorn Hojgaard, CEO of Anglo-Eastern said: “At Anglo-Eastern, our vision is to shape a better maritime future for all through meaningful contributions. Lookout Maritime was selected as our strategic partner given the wider stakeholder perspective and experience that they bring to the partnership, as well as the alignment in values and purpose between our organisations.

“We cannot achieve our sustainability vision and objectives alone. Lookout Maritime will help us to not only spearhead our own sustainability initiatives, but also drive change beyond Anglo-Eastern, thereby strengthening our ability to deliver on our mission and promise.”
