Danish owner and operator Norden and Canadian mining company Teck Resources have signed an agreement to reduce CO2 emissions in Teck’s steelmaking coal supply chain.
The agreement is expected to reduce annual emissions from Teck shipments handled by Norden by 25%, or up to 6,700 tonnes of CO2.
Norden said it would achieve the emission reduction by using fuel-efficient ships and alternative fuels such as biofuel in combination with the use of advanced data analytics to optimise vessel speed and routing.
“The partnership with Norden is expected to reduce Scope 3 emissions associated with transportation of Teck’s steelmaking coal, reducing our carbon footprint and advancing progress developing green transportation corridors,” said Jonathan Price, CEO of Teck.
“Norden’s strategy of helping our customers decarbonise their supply chains means that we, in addition to committing to carbon neutrality in 2050, have short to medium-term commitments, where our goal is to make carbon emission reductions towards 2030,” added Norden CEO Jan Rindbo.
