RightShip and ZeroNorth sign cross platform partnership to drive industry decarbonisation

Share

ESG-focused digital maritime platform RightShip has partnered with ZeroNorth, a leader in data-driven maritime optimisation. Users of either platform will be able to visualise and utilise RightShip’s GHG 2.0 Rating, along with RightShips’s Safety Score, 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 zero harm outcomes as efficiently and effectively as possible.

ZeroNorth’s CII Emissions Analytics solution is designed to help shipping companies optimise their operations in line with CII requirements whilst 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.

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 (pictured), 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 decarbonised future for the sector, and this partnership is going to support our customers in improving their environmental performance, ensuring that the key tools in driving maritime decarbonisation 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.”
