The Global Shipping Business Network (GSBN), a non-profit technology consortium, has partnered with the DNV classification society through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Their collaboration aims to promote decarbonization and the adoption of alternative fuels by enabling the secure sharing of verified data for green claims. According to GSBN’s CEO, Bertrand Chen, a reliable data foundation is crucial for achieving widespread shipping decarbonization, and GSBN’s network and blockchain infrastructure are well-suited for this purpose. The partnership emphasizes the importance of accurately measuring and tracking emissions reduction data throughout the supply chain, ensuring trustworthy, comparable, and verifiable environmental performance claims. DNV’s introduction of Emissions Connect, an emissions data verification engine, marks a significant step in operational data verification. Collaboratively, DNV and GSBN plan to conduct pilots integrating DNV’s verified shipment data with GSBN’s shipping line members, ultimately delivering reliable and credible green claims supported by detailed data.
