Yesterday, an important event unfolded at the European Parliament as Daniel Precioso, the lead data scientist of Canonical Green, took the stage to deliver a compelling pitch with the potential to transform the shipping industry’s environmental impact. With a strong commitment to driving positive change, Daniel presented Green Navigation, an innovative solution aimed at significantly reducing the carbon footprint of shipping operations. His address aimed to capture the attention of European policymakers and industry leaders, to spark a renewed focus on data-driven practices in maritime transportation.
During the pitch, Daniel highlighted a striking statistic, emphasizing the urgency of the situation. Every passing second, the shipping industry releases a staggering 30 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. This alarming fact served as a reminder of the pressing need for swift action to address the environmental impact of maritime transportation.
While acknowledging the industry’s ongoing efforts to explore alternatives to fossil fuels, such as green hydrogen and sail-powered vessels, Daniel stressed the importance of immediate action. The centerpiece of Daniel’s presentation was the introduction of Green Navigation, an innovative weather routing service developed by Canonical Green. This groundbreaking solution empowers shipping companies to reduce their emissions by at least 2% while ensuring safer journeys for all. Notably, Green Navigation requires nothing more than a computer on board and Internet access to perform the necessary computations, making it a cost-effective and accessible tool that can be seamlessly integrated into existing operations.
As the presentation concluded, Daniel made a passionate call to action, appealing for funding to accelerate the development and enhance the reliability of Green Navigation. He also emphasized the importance of collaboration and outreach to the wider shipping industry, recognizing that collective efforts and the adoption of data-driven practices can yield significant positive impacts.
