GRIMALDI GROUP WINS DECARBONISATION AWARD

Monday, December 16, 2019 

The Grimaldi Group has won the 'Excellence in Decarbonisation towards 2050' award at the Lloyd’s List Europe Awards, recently presented in London.

The event, organised by Lloyd’s List, and hosted by English actor Hugh Dennis, attracted some 400 shipping professionals as well as representatives of international organizations including IMO Secretary General Kitack Lim, and the Secretary General of ICS, Guy Platten.

Richard Meade, managing editor of Lloyd’s List said: “Each year at these events I stand before you and explain that the Lloyd’s List Awards are more necessary than ever, precisely because they reward successful endeavour in the face of seemingly intractable problems. But I also think that this collective view of excellence and endeavour has a more practical purpose. Sharing ideas is not just a good idea - it’s a question of survival”.

"We are extremely proud to receive such an important recognition, in a historic moment in which environmental sustainability is no longer a choice but a duty," said Emanuele Grimaldi, MD of the Italian Group. "Awards like this represent not only a goal, but above all an incentive to do even better. We will continue to commit ourselves and invest in green innovation, in order to contribute ever more significantly to the reduction of the environmental impact of transport-related activities".

Grimaldi says that it has been putting in place for years an investment plan aiming at energy efficiency and emission reduction, through which it has achieved goals that are often better than those prescribed by the most recent international regulations regarding environmental issues. Such investments include, among others, the use of alternative energy sources through the use of mega-batteries, solar panels and wind turbines, as well as a new class of state-of-the-art hybrid ro-ro vessels that will be delivered with some of the lowest CO2 output ever achieved.
