KSS Marine, the first to purchase ‘voluntary carbon credits’ among Korean shipping companies

KSS Shipping's carbon-neutral event, through a collaboration with MarinaChain, was highlighted in an article published by EBN on 20 October 2022. The original article was written in Korean, and a summary has been added below.

KSS Shipping announced that it had purchased voluntary carbon credits for the first time in Korea at the pre-naming ceremony for the new methanol fuel vessel 'SAVONETTA SUN'.

‘SAVONETTA SUN’ is methanol fuel vessel which is a commitment to zero emission vessels as a part of the green movement. MarinaChain actively collaborated with KSS by calculating the carbon emissions initiated from this event and guided the process of offsetting the emission by purchasing carbon credits from the Guatemalan Conservation Coast Project.
