Bureau Veritas Solutions Marine & Offshore (BVS) and ENGIE have formed a partnership to provide advisory and assurance services to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for shipping interests. The partners will offer advisory services to help shipping interests understand upcoming regulatory requirements, manage their risks, and determine the optimal low-carbon roadmap for their operations. ENGIE’s Global Energy Management & Sales (GEMS) unit’s experience in analysing and trading energy products and BVS’s technical advisory expertise in the marine and transport sectors will be combined to provide a comprehensive solution.
The collaboration will provide insights into fleet energy consumption and CO2 emissions, trading patterns, routes, and access to global energy markets, and a range of risk management strategies. As a result, BVS and GEMS aim to determine the optimal solution for commercial exposure and CO2 goals. They will also provide support on how an organization’s strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions can align with the European Commission’s Fit-for-55 package to phase out emissions from maritime transport into the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and the forthcoming FuelEU Maritime initiative.
The partnership will offer a range of advisory and market access services, including carbon offset strategies and products. ENGIE’s GEMS unit will bring their experience in analysing and trading energy products, while BVS will contribute their technical advisory expertise in the marine and transport sectors. Both companies’ combined knowledge about green shipping, capabilities, and guidance would assist ship owners, operators, and charterers better understand regulatory requirements and reduce their carbon footprint.
Through the collaboration, BVS and GEMS will provide owners with a low-carbon roadmap, assist with regulatory compliance, and offer insights into carbon offset strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The partners would also educate customers on changing regulations and opportunities for carbon offset strategies and products. The collaboration of BVS and GEMS demonstrates the importance of sustainability in the marine and offshore industry and suggests that more partnerships will emerge in the future to drive the sector towards a low-carbon future.
The partnership between BVS and ENGIE aims to improve the shipping industry’s sustainability. By providing advisory and assurance services, the companies will help shipping interests achieve regulatory compliance, manage risks, and determine the optimal low-carbon roadmap for their operations. Additionally, BVS and GEMS will provide services aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
