Clarksons helping clients to lower emissions across the shipping industry


Clarksons is pleased to announce a new partnership with Signol as part of its wider commitment to helping lower emissions across the shipping industry.

Signol is an app and communication service that connects users to the direct impact of their actions, nudging them to make measurable fuel and CO2 savings. The software aims to reduce users’ emissions by up to 5% and save high-fuel consuming mobility businesses thousands of dollars each day by encouraging:

  • Trim and draft optimisation
  • Speed optimisation
  • Improved arrival and departure performance
  • Route optimisation
  • More efficient engine management.

"We are delighted to partner with Clarksons and offer Signol’s unique, people centric approach to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions to their clients."

Gavin Laidlaw, Chief Commercial Officer at Signol continues "their brand, experience and network will be invaluable as Signol seeks to expand the number of projects we run in the maritime environment."


Significantly reducing the carbon footprint

Reducing carbon emissions is high priority for our clients, and pressure will increase as further regulation and legislation comes into force. The joint initiative forms part of a broad service offering from the Clarksons Carbon Broking team, which is dedicated to assisting clients in reducing their fuel consumption and carbon footprint through working with trusted partners.

"Our strategic partnership with Signol allows us to strengthen our integrated approach to shipping decarbonisation and provide our clients with broader options to consider in the mitigation of both footprint and compliance risk."

Roger Horton Chief Commercial Officer (Global Broking) at Clarksons continues "We believe that Clarkson’s role is not just to enable global trade, but also to be proactive in our industry’s response to emissions by trying to promote positive change. This aspiration is at the heart of our partnership with Signol. We are pleased to be working with them and are hopeful this can provide our clients a convenient additional resource to help deliver meaningful emissions reduction and cost savings to their shipping businesses."
