MacGregor decarbonisation journey

The maritime industry has started its journey towards a more sustainable future, driven by the IMO Strategy on Reduction of GHG Emissions for reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping close to 2050 and external legislation like EU fit for 55, as well as stakeholders’ demands and initiatives. 

As the leading provider of maritime cargo and load handling solutions, MacGregor is committed to doing its share for the decarbonisation of the industry and to pursuing science-based measures to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. We aim to significantly reduce our own emissions, and help our value chain including customers to reduce emissions of their operations.
