Wallenius Wilhelmsen has introduced an updated carbon footprint measurement tool that will provide transparent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data – Carbon Compass 2.0.

“Today we see a growing need and interest to deliver more sustainable shipping,” said Wallenius Wilhelmsen. “Reducing the impact of CO2 emissions in the outbound supply chain is more important than ever. By presenting accurate, transparent greenhouse gas data on a global, trade lane or voyage level, Carbon Compass 2.0 ensures that customers get the granular detail they need to report on their Scope 3 supply chain emissions.”

The original version of the tool was launched 12 years ago. Since then, Wallenius Wilhelmsen has seen a growing demand from its customers to receive up-to-speed GHG emissions data across their supply chains. By investing in technology and digitalising its fleet, this latest version of the tool enables Wallenius Wilhelmsen to meet these evolving needs and provide customised feedback to customers.

Carbon Compass 2.0 calculates the total GHG emissions and intensity of the ocean leg of the  supply chain. Results are based on IMO emissions factors and the key operational parameters that determine these emissions, including fuel consumed, cargo weight and distance sailed.
