Maersk ECO Delivery
Now there is choice.
The time to lower your greenhouse gas emission footprint is now
Maersk has set its sights on being net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 with new technology. A serious climate commitment that we are undertaking to support your challenging Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets. To achieve this we have developed an effective solution to decarbonise your ocean logistics - Maersk ECO Delivery. An innovative product that replaces fossil fuels with green fuels, giving you an easy choice to transport your cargo responsibly and grow your business. It’s just one of the ways that we go all the way to drive decarbonisation in our customers’ supply chains.
A beacon for companies with ambitious decarbonisation targets
In the space of just a few years, there has been a steep change in the commitment across society to reduce GHG emissions. To facilitate this, Maersk is working closely with a broad range of customers to further develop our offerings around green fuels. Maersk ECO Delivery has enabled many of our customers to move a step closer to net-zero emissions from supply chain-related activities. Its advantages include:
Green fuels – powering decarbonisation initiatives
Maersk defines “green fuels” as fuels with low to very low GHG emissions over their life cycle as compared to fossil fuels. Different green fuels achieve different life cycle GHG reductions depending on their production pathway as shown below.
Percentage life cycle GHG reductions compared to fossil fuels
- Low emissions: 65-80%
- Very low emissions: 80-95%
Maersk currently uses FAME biofuels to reduce GHG emissions in their ocean journey. With fuels like methanol Maersk will strive to achieve higher GHG emissions reductions than the legislative thresholds, in the future.

Sharing one network and one planet - how it works
Maersk ECO Delivery Ocean is based on a Mass Balance chain of custody model (CoC), that uses green fuels, such as biofuel or methanol. The emission reductions are gained on any of the lanes within the Maersk overall network, covering the agreed distance for your booking. Learn more about Mass Balance and ECO Delivery in the FAQ section.
On September 2023, Maersk was proud to set the world’s first methanol-powered container vessel on its maiden voyage. With 25 next generation green methanol-powered vessels, Maersk is adding even more green fuel to the network for Maersk ECO Delivery customers to access, while de-risking green fuel supply through diversification, and strengthening our customers’ capabilities in their decarbonisation ambitions.
