Maersk to Go Green Early as New Fuel Options Speed Up Transition

A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S, one of the world’s largest oil consumers, will reach its goal of becoming carbon neutral ahead of a 2050 deadline because the green transition in shipping is turning out to be easier than expected, its chief executive said.

“It will go a lot faster,” CEO Soren Skou said. The Copenhagen-based company will probably announce a new target at an investor day, planned for March, that will focus on environmental and social issues, he said.
