Our Senior Vice President, Matthew Smith, recently discussed how VLCC pooling could play a pivotal role in shipping’s decarbonisation in the latest issue of Clean Shipping International.

With increasing pressure on shipowners to reduce their carbon footprint, there is much-needed urgency to comply with or exceed carbon reduction targets. Yet this will require shipowners to build technical knowledge and divert significant amounts of resource to emissions reduction technologies and practices.

Pooling can move many operational obligations away from the shipowner and simplify their decarbonisation journey. The Tankers International VLCC Pool also facilitates high level technical information sharing amongst participants, which will help them to prepare for new technologies required to comply with regulations.
