Emissions Connect

ADVANCE from raw data to sustainable operations

Emissions performance is a crucial business factor

In today’s shipping industry shipowners and managers must comply with ever-tightening regulations and ever-rising expectations from stakeholders, customers and partners.

The industry needs to manage and operationally control Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII) performance, paired with the accurate accounting of carbon emissions, to settle EU allowances (EUAs) and manage the impact from the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS) in the maritime supply chain.  

When the FuelEU Maritime Regulation comes into force in January 2025, emissions data that a wide range of stakeholders can trust will become even more important.

That is why we developed Emissions Connect, a digital service designed to receive continuously verified data from third parties throughout the year. This service enables easy sharing of data between stakeholders, ensuring consistent emissions data management.

Handle EU ETS and gain operational CII control

Driven by a multitude of factors – from regulatory requirements on CII and EUAs to ESG and Poseidon Principles – emissions performance is taking a place within the commercial terms between shipowners, operators, and technical managers thereby affecting the entire maritime value chain.

As a result, a trusted source of verified emissions data is fundamental to facilitate the many business transactions.   

Emissions Connect by DNV fuels the industry’s collaboration by equipping the maritime value chain with capabilities to verify and share data – providing the trusted basis needed to facilitate settlement of EUAs and manage CII performance.

Meeting stakeholder expectations and future-proof operations throughout the value chain requires daily automated reports with real-time verification.

Emissions Connect makes real-time verified data sets available on a non-aggregated level, ready to be analyzed, exported and shared with your stakeholders. Utilizing the operational vessel data (OVD) standard and our digital data verification schemes, this solution connects data across fleets, system and all partners in your unique value chain setting. Providing not just a single source per vessel but purpose build to represent your entire operations.

Access and manage your data sets, monitor and simulate performance, and securely control your value chain partners’ access to the data and insights they need.

Helping you connect

To fully leverage the power of Emissions Connect, you will have to set up your data reporting according to the OVD standard. This will enable you to access the core features of Emissions Connect and benefit from automated data quality feedback loops from DNV.

We understand that the load of data acquisition and integration can be challenging for you. Therefore, we are partnering with several industry players providing standardized application programming interface (API) connections that allow you to share data in the OVD format directly from your current fleet performance management system to the Data Workbench and Emissions Connect.
