StormGeo, a provider of weather intelligence and decision-support solutions for the shipping industry, is releasing a Carbon Footprint Dashboard to help shipping industry customers reduce carbon emissions more effectively. While specifically designed for energy efficiency and decarbonization managers, it will be available to all users of the company’s s-Insight fleet performance management solution.

The dashboard compiles all relevant data in one place to more easily monitor decarbonization metrics, set carbon intensity targets and streamline regulatory reporting processes, the company explained. Using several pre-configured widgets, it provides numerous graphs and diagrams to visualize the carbon footprint of all shipping activities.
“The Carbon Footprint Dashboard provides a single source of all CO2 emissions data. It gives access to the analytics necessary to review the impact of implemented measures, identify corrective actions and report on carbon intensity alignment with industry trajectories to internal and external stakeholders,” said Madeleine Engelhardt, product manager, Fleet Compliance and Technical Performance, at StormGeo, which is part of Alfa Laval. “The dashboard helps shipping companies focus on the decarbonization metrics that matter.”
The system calculates and displays various CO2 emission indicators for fleets, vessel subgroups and individual vessels for each leg of the voyage. These insights will be available to all dashboard users, helping to ensure transparency and improve collaboration on decarbonization initiatives across organizational departments, the company noted.
The German shipping company F.A. VINNEN & CO. is among a number of companies that StormGeo says have already indicated plans to leverage the dashboard to better understand the real operational impact of their actions on carbon emissions.
“StormGeo’s Carbon Footprint Dashboard will help us keep detailed track of how much CO2 our shipping activities emit into the atmosphere and quickly gives us the necessary overview to see whether parts of our fleet aren’t performing as they should,” says Bernd Hein, managing director, F.A. VINNEN & CO. “It will enable us to drill down into the data and see how something as small as a single leg of an individual vessel impacts our overall emissions and get the decision-support necessary to correct any issues.”
The Carbon Footprint Dashboard will be released in October 2022 as part of s-Insight, and will be available for all route advisory and fleet performance management customers.
