Carnival Corporation, the world's largest cruise shipowner, announced it had joined the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, a nonprofit, independent research & development center "committed to accelerating the transition toward a net-zero future for the global maritime industry."

The Corporation, with 9 global brands, is the first cruise company to join the global community of the center.

Maersk's Zero Carbon Shipping aims to advance the industry's transition to a low carbon future via collaboration across the entire value chain, with a long-term ambition of reaching zero-carbon shipping by 2050.

The center is facilitating the implementation of new technologies, sustainable solutions, and viable transition pathways while driving needed regulations to enable the transition.

The shared vision closely aligns with the Corporation's decarbonization goals and aspiration "to achieve net carbon-neutral ship operations by 2050" through partnering with key organizations to help scale new technologies not yet ready for the industry.

Carnival Corporation will now have the opportunity to collaborate with cruise industry players and like-minded organizations across the shipping and energy sectors and have access to knowledge and research activities for "identifying viable decarbonization pathways."

Partners of the center comprise 40+ companies, including global stakeholders from various shipping-related industries like marine classification societies, fuel suppliers, shipping companies, energy companies, engineering and manufacturing companies, and more.
