Marsoft’s Managing Decarbonization program is an innovative membership program that ensures members realize the best available outcomes from their retrofitting investment while minimizing the cost and risk of each step.

​​MD makes your aging loans more profitable, your balance sheet stronger, your footprint greener, and your shareholders happier.

Profitable Path to Decarbonization

Opportunities to Reduce Carbon Emission Are Being Overlooked

•Emissions reduction is now costly and risky

•Only accessible to most sophisticated owners

Managing Decarbonization (MD) Mobilizes Industry-Wide Response

•Break the Cost Barrier

•Create Scale with Simplicity, Standardization

•Align Incentives/Share the Cost Savings

Banks Can Be A Catalyst for Profitable And Effective Climate Action

•Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

•Enhance Value & Debt Capacity of Portfolio

•Pro-Active Response to Regulation

MD Savings – Win/Win for all Stakeholders
Lower Cost

MD consolidates and re-prices fleet buying requirements over a five-year survey period.

Reducing cost through simplification, standardization, scale and repeat business.

Scale creates value and lower cost for manufacturers, yards, and service companies – and MD members.

Higher Revenue

Originating and selling carbon credits is a time consuming and expensive process without MD.

By standardizing the process for thousands of ships MD reduces the cost for each project.

Make shipping’s CO2 reductions credible, marketable, and a revenue generator.

Retrofit Costs & Benefits: With and Without MD*

•Without MD owners will not invest to reduce emissions.

•With MD the cost to reduce CO2 fall by a third from $3.1 to $2.1 million and deliver 13% emissions. Owners will invest.

•Carbon and $ Savings:

    CO2: 4000 tonnes/year

    HFO: 1,300 tonnes/year


The chart compares the expected net present value of investments to reduce CO2 emissions.  Three options are shown, reducing emissions by 5%, 8%, and 13% respectively.  The vertical axis shows the NPV of those investments.  Without MD the investments are marginally profitable and the greatest CO2 reductions are unprofitable. With MD (as shown by the gold line at the top of the chart) costs are reduced to make even the most potent option profitable.
