The chief executive officer of Hapag-Lloyd Rolf Habben Jansen has urged shipping companies to work together to achieve green targets.

Even though he did not directly refer to it, his statements on Wednesday come one day after Moller-Maersk and CMA CGM unveiled a wide-ranging cooperation on maritime decarbonisation between them.

Having said that, Hapag-Lloyd is already teaming up with other companies on greener shipping as a strategic partner of the Singapore-based Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD).
