MOL Group’s Pathway to Net Zero GHG Emissions
Associated General Manager, Energy Business Strategy Division as well as Bunker Business Division of Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL).
Joined MOL in 1991. After several years in the Container Ship Division, in 1996 transferred to Car Carrier Division in Tokyo. In 2020, transferred to current divisions as the Project manager of Green Bunker Fuel Project in charge of company-wide GHG reduction roadmap towards 2050.
Promoting the adoption of optimum fuels for various types of ships
MOL contributes to the realization of a sustainable society and zero-emission operations by working to improve the work environment for crew members and protect the global environment, which are urgent issues in coastal shipping.
FMC consists of seven sectors such as Shipping, Aluminum, etc. and MOL is the first Japanese company to join FMC's Shipping Sector. Shipping companies participating in the shipping sector have committed to power at least 5% of deep-sea shipping with zero-emission fuels by 2030, enabled by ships capable of using zero-emission fuels.
MOL has announced the “MOL Group Environmental Vision 2.2” as a new roadmap to achieve net-zero GHG emissions by 2050 and promote sustainable development of people, society, and the planet, and has incorporated the FMC commitment as an intermediate milestone.
In addition to working on the development and operation of vessels from the perspective of fuel users, we will work withdiverse partners to urge upstream players of the fuel supply chain to join our efforts to expand the use of new fuels.
