ESG Ratings in the Maritime Industry: The Importance of Sustainability and Decarbonization

It’s been a year since we started!

At MarinaChain, our mission is to help shipowners and maritime companies navigate their journey towards decarbonization and comply with IMO regulations and other upcoming environmental regulations.

We know that the maritime industry is facing numerous challenges, including stricter environmental regulations and uncertainty about future technology required for decarbonization. In this context, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) ratings are becoming increasingly important. ESG metrics help demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and decarbonization, which is not only a plus for the environment, but also for investors.

Companies with better ESG ratings tend to have a more robust track record of profitability and long-term growth, making them more likely to attract investment and win business from customers who value sustainability. This trend is only gaining momentum, so if you're looking to stand out in the marketplace, focusing on your ESG performance is a great place to start.

With that in mind, we have compiled a list of the ESG ratings for the top 30 shipping container companies. View our comparison table here!

MarinaChain offers web software for technical, operational, and sales teams to monitor and manage ESG risks and CII rates, visualize and manage their fleet and routes, and understand their carbon footprint on a holistic lifecycle basis. If you need support in your decarbonization journey, drop me an email! We would be happy to explore ways in which we can support your needs.
