Cargill Inc., known for its land-based agriculture, is also a dominant presence on the world’s waterways and is hoping to use its power position to clean up the ocean-shipping industry. The Minnetonka-based conglomerate recently committed to reducing its greenhouse-gas emissions at sea by 15 percent in the next two years, but it’s going to need help from its partners to achieve this.
Commodities and chartering giant Cargill is teaming up with four NGOs to boost shipping sustainability. The idea is to back initiatives and increase accountability across the sector.
