Global business advisor Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and classification society ABS are teaming up to provide shipping with concrete strategies on how to decarbonise.

The aim is to combine the two groups’ change management and technical competencies to provide commercial advice for shipping companies and industry stakeholders to transform their businesses for the net-zero journey ahead.

Uncertainty around regulation and technology still allows companies to take a bold leadership position, said Peter Jameson, global lead for climate & sustainability in BCG’s infrastructure, transport & cities practice that “will create an advantage for first movers and sustainable business for followers”.
