"We are delighted to have SGL as our valued partner supporting our Ship Green initiative," says Tom De Wilde, Senior Director Global Sales at Hapag-Lloyd. "Together, we are demonstrating our shared dedication to decarbonization and driving positive change in the shipping industry – in line with Hapag-Lloyd’s commitment to operate a net-zero fleet by 2045." 

Through this collaborative effort, SGL and Hapag-Lloyd aim to establish a long-term partnership for the further upscaling of sustainable transport solutions. This collaboration shows that it is possible to contribute to the joint efforts of decarbonizing the maritime industry and the logistic sector by using currently available biofuel solutions.
