Ultratank highlights

Call to Action for Shipping Decarbonisation

We believe that shipping must and can decarbonise fully by 2050, and we are taking concrete action towards this goal. But to match the urgency of the climate crisis, we need the support of governments now. Ultranav joins the Call to Action for Shipping Decarbonisation launched by Global Maritime Forum.

Trade routes

Chemical tankers transport a wide range of liquid products that are key to industrial production of essential products in our daily life, such as edibles, biofuels, paints, electronics and fertilizers.

Decarbonisation of the shipping industry

Ultratank is committed to a cleaner future and we strive to play an active role in exceeding IMO’s mandatory targets of reducing CO2 intensity by at least 40% until 2030 and total GHG emissions by 50% until 2050.
