Equinor launching maritime climate ambitions
On the UN’s World Oceans Day, June 8 2020, Equinor launched ambitions to reduce our own emissions from ships, and explained how we will contribute to decarbonising shipping.
We recently launched our maritime climate ambitions with clear targets for 2030 and 2050.
We have contracted four new low carbon shuttle-tankers that will come into our fleet during 2020 and are part of a comprehensive newbuilding plan for our shipping fleet.

Norway is establishing a programme to achieve the world’s most efficient and environmentally friendly shipping.
The Green Shipping Programme aims to find scalable solutions for efficient and environmentally friendly shipping. The results will be cost-effective emission cuts, economic growth, increased competitiveness, and new jobs in Norway. Authorities and industry actors are participating in the programme and are working together to achieve these goals.
What we will achieve:
