Sustainable biofuel used for carbon insetting R2) R2) Carbon insetting directly reduces carbon emissions where they are actually emitted during the business activities, whereas carbon offsetting reduces emissions outside the business realm by purchasing carbon credits from a project a company do not own or operate.

HMM reduces Scope 1 emissions

By sailing with low carbon fuel
Can save GHG emissions compared to the case of BAU(Business as Usual) By replacing conventional
fossil-based fuel with biofuel for the voyage.
*2nd generation biofuel to be used

Customer buys GHG Reduction

Regardless of the cargo’s port of origin or destination, any cargoes
in terms of Mass Balance concept
HMM will offer total price for specific tonnes of GHG reduction. (at customer’s request) Other additional expenses won’t occur after the contract.

Customer reduces Scope 3 emissions

Total GHG reduction within BDS will be allocated to the customer.
At this stage, the entire reduction will be sold to each single customer. HMM is currently developing Book & Claim service, and when system is settled, each cargo owner will be able to purchase and claim GHG reduction per TEU.
(during H1 of 2024)

FAQ

  • What is carbon insetting?
    While a carbon offset works by purchasing certificates or funding a carbon reduction project at external sector,
    Carbon insetting directly reduces carbon emissions in the sector where they are actually emitted during their business (transportation).
  • What are the benefits of Green Sailing?
    Due to mass balance concept, customers can reduce their Scope 3 GHG emissions regardless of the transport service of which actual customer’s cargo is onboard. In other words, no physical connection to the ship is required and customers still can claim to benefit of lower emissions.
    HMM will offer the best solution for our customers subject to the availability and cost competitiveness of alternative fuels.
  • When and how can I use Green Sailing?
    Customers can contact to P.I.C. for usage / quotes / inquiries / more details of Green Sailing Service.
    Contact point : Green Sailing / green_sailing@hmm21.com
  • What kind of document is provided?
    HMM will provide a 'Green Sailing Service Declaration' that contains amount of GHG reduction and the corresponding amount of sustainable alternative fuels used. Also, on customer's request, copies of relevant documents may be provided to customers. (Bunker Delivery Note, Proof of Sustainability or equivalent documents provided by bunker suppliers)
  • Is Green Sailing Service verified?
    The methodology for Green Sailing Service is advised by PwC Korea in Sep 2023.
  • What process do I expect?
    Once customer's requirement(=GHG reduction) is received, HMM will make a feasibility study and commercial offer accordingly. To ensure reduction of GHG compared to BAU (Business as usual) required amount of sustainable alternative fuels, GHG reduction effect, terms and project plan will be provided
  • When is the Declaration provided?
    When carbon insetting reaches customer's target value HMM issues the declaration to allocate the total GHG reduction for customers scope 3 based on certified documents. If required by customers, HMM may issue the declaration on a quarterly basis or annual basis.
  • Is Green Sailing Service expensive?
    The costs for Green Sailing depends on your good company’s reduction targets.
  • What alternative fuels does HMM use?
    HMM currently uses bio-fuel on designated vessels to reduce GHG emissions in terms of Well to Wake(WTW).
    The alternative fuel ships will be introduced in coming years (LNG DF from Nov 2024 and Methanol DF from Apr 2025)
  • What kind of bio-fuels are used?
    Bio-fuels used for Green Sailing are 2nd generation biofuels sourced from sustainable supply chains that comply with EU RED III (Renewable Energy Directive). 2nd generation biofuels are fuels that can be manufactured from various types of non-food based biomass. (e.g. forestry residues, agricultural residues, etc)
  • How much GHG reduction can biofuel do?
    On a life-cycle basis, B30 (HFO 70% + mix of biofuel 30%) for instance, has a lower CO2e footprint and emits 22-25% less compared to conventional fuel.
