Matson targets net-zero emissions by 2050


Matson Inc. announced additional environmental sustainability goals.

Specifically, the company aims to reduce fleet-related greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 and reach net-zero fleet emissions by 2050.

Matson’s emissions targets focus solely on scope 1 emissions, or emissions directly related to operations.

“Our aim is to achieve these medium- and long-term goals by improving fleet and operational efficiency,” Matt Cox, Matson chairman and CEO, said in a release.

“Matson is supporting efforts to create an industry-funded research and development program to accelerate zero-carbon fuels and technologies. While these transformative technologies develop, we will continue to focus on improving the efficiency of our fleet and terminal operations,” he said.
