The Liberian Registry, the world’s largest shipping registry in tonnage, has a team on focused energy transition and reaching net-zero GHG emissions.

The new Innovation & Energy Transition team’s mission will promote the integration of new and existing solutions to aid in energy transition efforts working in collaboration with shipyards, design companies, classification societies, engine manufacturers, shipowners/managers, and other key stakeholders. Additionally, innovative ship designs, new technologies, and alternative fuels have been realised through its partnership on joint industry projects (JIPs) and joint development projects (JDPs).

“We take great pride in launching our Innovation & Energy Transition Team. This initiative reflects our dedication to service excellence and developing innovative techniques by collaborating with our partners to reach net-zero goals,” said Alfonso Castillero, CEO of the Liberian International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR).

“We hold a firm belief that responsible and sustainable shipping practices are the future, and we’re proud to offer this support to our clients." 

This new department will work to tackle the challenges facing the international shipping world to transform to net-zero GHG emissions in line with the 2023 IMO GHG Emissions Reduction Strategy with the goal to reach net-zero GHG emissions by 2050.
