TOKYO-Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Takeshi Hashimoto) has announced the launch of EcoMOL Inc. (EcoMOL; Representative: Keiichiro Yokohashi; Headquarters: Manila, Philippines), a wholly owned subsidiary that focuses on reducing immediate GHG emissions by improving operational efficiency of ships using digital solutions.

MOL has set a target to improve 5 % fuel-efficiency by end of 2024, it is in line with "MOL Group Environmental Vision 2.1(note1)". In the short term plan, improving ship operational efficiency including ship's ESD (energy sailing device) installations is the most effective and realistic solution.

MOL will encourage to take dynamic and innovative actions in daily operation, leveraging a big data analysis and constant actual operation performance review. EcoMOL Inc. will take a vital role to stimulate above activities by collaborating with various stakeholders and lead ships eco-operation by all means.

Besides, MOL believes it will further increase its group-wide human assets capitalizing on rich Filipino maritime experience and for being known as excellent communicators. Also, it can contribute to the Filipino society through employment opportunities.

The FOCUS (note2) project as the MOL ships digital transformation solution will fully assist the activities providing multiple aspects of ships' data performance based on ships' highest granularity data and translate ships data analysis into operational excellence.

MOL has set medium- to long-term targets of "Reducing GHG emissions intensity in marine transport by approximately 45% by 2035 (versus 2019)" and "achieving net zero GHG emissions by 2050 with concerted effort throughout the group," through five initiatives including "boost operational efficiency" (Fig. 1) in the "MOL Group Environmental Vision 2.1". EcoMOL will play a key role to achieve sustainable net zero GHG emissions and contribute to a low- and decarbonized society.
