Hempel is determined to make a positive contribution to solving a number of the world’s current and future sustainability issues across segments. Hempel has an important role to play in helping customers on their journeys towards sustainability and sees in-creased interest in sustainable solutions across segments – Hempel’s coatings have never been more in demand than they are today. An example of this focus is that Hempel announced in October 2019 that it had joined the Getting to Zero Coalition, a multi-stakeholder group that aims to see the introduction of commercially viable zero-emission shipping vessels by 2030. This partnership between the Global Maritime Forum, Friends of Ocean Action, and the World Economic Forum, is bringing together industry stakeholders to work towards having commercially viable ZEVs operating along deep-sea trade routes. Hempel has committed to being a key player in achieving this goal.
