The Zero Emission Maritime Buyers Alliance (ZEMBA) plans to launch a request for proposal (RFP) in September 2023 for zero-emission shipping services to be delivered by 2025. ZEMBA, co-founded by the Aspen Institute, Amazon, Patagonia, and Tchibo, will accelerate the deployment of zero-emission shipping and reduce maritime emissions. The RFP will seek proposals for container shipping services that achieve a minimum 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional petroleum-based shipping. ZEMBA members, including major companies like IKEA and Michelin, will commit a portion of their shipping demand to zero-emission services. The aggregated demand is expected to be over 200,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). ZEMBA encourages stakeholders in the shipping industry, such as shipping lines, fuel producers, and ports, to respond to customer demand and support the transition to a zero-emission shipping economy.
