AP Moller-Maersk will deploy "crisis" measures to hit its target of reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040, according to head of decarbonisation Morten Bo Christiansen.

He believes the Danish giant can achieve its target of bringing forward its zero-carbon goal by a whole decade by treating the decarbonisation issue as an "emergency".

"We have realised this problem is for real and it's only getting worse," Christiansen told TradeWinds.
