A new partnership agreement between Maersk Line and Equate Petrochemical Company will lead to a reduction of the Kuwaiti company's CO2 emissions per transported container of 15 percent in 2020.

"In line with our strategy of sustainability, this agreement is another step towards sharing our vision for reducing CO2 emissions with our suppliers and work with them to reduce emissions through the implementation of best practice," says Head of Technical Services in Equate, Jafa Al-Kandari.

A former cooperation agreement between the two companies from 2013 to 2016 led to a reduction of CO2 emissions by over 35 percent. This is done through investments in more environment-friendly ships, network optimization, better use of space ships and other measures, according to Equate.

Maersk Line, which has similar agreements with other strategic customers, welcomes the agreement.
"We are pleased to contribute to Equates plans to reduce emissions in the value chain and to develop our business relationship further by bringing sustainability elements into purchasing practices," said Maersk Line Regional Director in Kuwait, Mohammad Shihab.
