SHELL WINS LUBRICANTS CONTRACT FROM CARNIVAL CORPORATION

Tuesday, January 12, 2021 

Shell Marine has been awarded a multi-year contract to provide marine lubricants to cruise line operator Carnival Corporations global fleet of 89 ships, through which Carnival says it can offset the carbon dioxide emissions from the marine lubricants it purchases from Shell, through Shells nature-based carbon credits.

Joris van Brussel (pictured), GM Shell Marine, said: “Shell Marine is working with our customers to help the shipping sector decarbonise. This is in line with Shell’s ambition to become a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050 or sooner, in step with society and our customers. Through our marine lubricants and integrated service offering which includes technical and digital services, we’re helping customers like Carnival optimise engine efficiency, thus reducing a ship’s environmental impact. We are delighted that our integrated approach and carbon-neutral marine lubricants can help bring customers like Carnival a step closer to achieving their sustainability ambitions.”

Michael T Mcnamara, VP Global Fuel Sourcing, Carnival said: “Addressing climate change is a top priority for us and we are committed to delivering a cleaner, more efficient and sustainable cruise experience. Aligning the supply chain with our decarbonisation strategy was a key consideration and Shell’s carbon-neutral marine lubricants support our efforts to reduce our carbon emission by 40% by 2030. We have made significant progress and welcome this initiative from Shell Marine on our decarbonisation journey.”
