MAN Energy Solutions and UGS make joint decarbonization commitment

Following a meeting during the 2022 Posidonia trade fair in Athens, MAN Energy Solutions and the Union of Greek Shipowners (UGS) have announced their mutual commitment to a policy of decarbonization, especially in regard to the testing and development of alternative fuels and, more generally, the maritime value chain. This recognizes the vital role that engine designers and manufacturers play, and that shipping’s decarbonization requires the contribution of multiple stakeholders.

Established in 1916, the UGS represents Greek-owned commercial vessels of over 3,000 gross tonnes under the Greek and other flags. Greek shipping currently represents some 59% of the EU-controlled fleet and almost 21% of the world’s deadweight capacity.
