What is RightShip?
RightShip is the world’s biggest third party maritime due diligence organisation, providing expertise in global safety, sustainability and social responsibility practices.
Our organisation was built to respond to a pressing need for operational improvements in the maritime industry. We provide comprehensive due diligence services so you can make informed business decisions. We also help industry partners work towards excellence in safety, sustainability and social responsibility practices on shore and at sea.
Our team believes that a successful voyage is commercially beneficial to the entire supply chain. A best practice journey meets the highest safety standards, is good for the environment and ensures seafarers are supported.
Powered By Data And Industry Experts
We combine years of industry experience, analytics and large data sets to provide our safety and environmental scoring systems, recommendations and advice, all delivered through one easy to use platform.
Using our risk management and best practice tools, you’re able to make informed decisions in an environment that is a constant state of flux.
The risks that all vessels face during the course of operations can ultimately be managed, evaluated and improved beyond the compliance baseline. Through the use of our safety solutions, you’re able to set new benchmarks in safety.
- Vessel inspections drive improved safety standards at sea
- RightShip’s Safety Score shines a light on operational performance
- Vessel vetting protects cargo on every journey
We’re steering the maritime industry towards a sustainable future. When you use our sustainability solutions, you’re protecting our natural environment, developing a competitive advantage and improving your bottom line.
- RightShip’s GHG Rating provides industry-wide benchmarking on vessel emissions
- The carbon accounting tool provides environmental insights for your voyage, portfolio or environmental insights for your supply chain
- Our Maritime Emissions Portal (MEP) gives port and terminal operators emissions inventory data so that local air quality can be managed in a more informed way
When it comes to safety, quality and environmental performance benchmarking, the only comprehensive tool a ship operator has is RightShip. It is vital for us to measure and compare our results. Apart from benchmarking, the live feed of incidents on the tasks menu contains important lessons learnt from across the industry which are always included in our safety bulletins! We are proud to work with RightShip in an effort to improve the safety and environmental sustainability of the maritime industry.
We’ve used RightShip to ensure the vessels we use are safe and environmentally sound, so it was a logical step to ask the team to help us measure our scope 3 emissions. Working with them is very straightforward and we are confident in the accuracy and reliability of the results. There are very few scope 3 data sources and, as far as we are aware, there is no other agency able to deliver this level of accuracy for ocean transport.
RightShip, the ship approval system used to verify vessel efficiency, has confirmed the fuel savings Odfjell has achieved using MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Kappel Propeller upgrade package. After the upgrade, the vessels are amongst the most energy efficient chemical tankers in the world, and achieve the highest score on the RightShip’s energy rating, A+.
Until 2016, our scope 3 emissions were estimated but that’s no longer good enough. We need to understand our emissions so we can benchmark them against other shippers and control them effectively. RightShip allows us to do that.
We’re proud to be accelerating the shipping industry’s movement toward greater efficiency and sustainability using RightShip’s GHG Emissions Rating. Since launching our Green Wave vessel incentive program in 2014, RightShip has been an exemplary qualifying measurement that has allowed vessel charterers and owners to take advantage of significant discounts to harbour dues at the Port of Prince Rupert. The support we have received through our partnership with RightShip has been integral to the success of our program. Our recognition of environmental performance is encouraging the adoption of similar practices across the global shipping industry.
By using more-efficient ships, we are gaining cost efficiencies and furthering our efforts to reduce Mosaic’s carbon footprint. Given the success of GHG Emissions Rating vetting, we are reviewing options to also exclude F-rated vessels. Emissions from shipping currently represent less than 5 percent of Mosaic’s carbon footprint.
Early indications are that the MEP will be a useful tool for both port authorities and port operators to better understand shipping emissions and therefore consider management opportunities to address these emissions in balance with land-based sources.
Working towards zero-incident, zero-emissions seas since 1991
RightShip is committed to setting global safety and sustainability benchmarks in the maritime sector.
Alongside our mission to make our seas safer and minimise the environmental impact of international shipping, we believe we make a difference by supporting not-for-profit maritime organisations, including those that work towards improving the wellbeing of seafarers.
