This partnership is aligned with the strategies of both companies - Höegh Autoliners is dedicated to offering ocean transportation solutions with a focus on reducing environmental impact and supporting the decarbonisation of its customers' supply chains. VARO's mission is to be the partner of choice for customers in the energy transition by providing them with the low-carbon energy solutions they need in order to decarbonise. Dev Sanyal, CEO of VARO stated: "Höegh Autoliners is not just a customer but a strategic partner. I am delighted that VARO will be collaborating with Höegh to forge innovative solutions, share insights, and drive sustainable progress, contributing to the ambitions set bythe International MaritimeOrganization (IMO) to reduce the carbon intensity of emissions from shipping by at least 40% by 2030, and 70% by 2050, compared with 2008 levels. Together, we aim to help decarbonise deep-sea shipping, leveraging the potential of biofuels and ensuring a more sustainable future for our customers."
