The shipping industry is responsible for around 3% of the world’s total carbon emissions, and this figure will grow to 15% by 2050 if alternative fuels and clean technologies are not adopted today. Some people say the world is sea blind, and that the polluting transport industry is a blind spot for climate policies and decision-makers.
At GoodFuels, we are changing this mindset. Our mission is to accelerate the energy transition and create a better world by developing and supplying truly sustainable alternative solutions to fossil fuels for the global maritime industry and the road transport sector.
Together with GoodShipping, GoodFuels is part of the GoodNRG Group, a small but thriving international team of people who all feel passionate about our mission.
