APM Terminals will bring forward its Net Zero greenhouse gas emission target to 2040, a decade ahead of its initial 2050 ambition. A 70% reduction in absolute (total) emissions has been set as an interim milestone for the period 2020-2030. This is the most ambitious target set by any terminal operator to date.This commitment builds upon the company’s existing strategic approach to decarbonisation and recent investment in a full suite of solutions to reduce its carbon footprint. It will also contribute to a broader target set by parent company A.P. Moller - Maersk to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2040 across all business entities.The Net Zero criteria use the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) pathway to limit global warming to 1.5°C. They include a societal commitment to act now and drive material impact in this decade, and a commitment to deliver net zero supply chains to customers by 2040.
