A company overview
We turn challenges into opportunities
By delivering best in class data-driven decision support we allow charterers to reduce CO2 emissions quickly, significantly and profitably.
We're a trusted industry partner
Our customers trust us to collect, anonymise and reuse their granular emissions data to provide reliable decision support and continuously improve our machine learning models.
Our ship emissions reporting system is rapidly becoming a global standard
18 % of spot voyages in the oil and gas are covered by our standard and 45 % of all tanker owners report emissions to Siglar Carbon.
We predict emissions from tankers with 95 % accuracy
The volume, granularity and high quality of our data enables us to estimate with high accuracy.
Founded in Norway in 2016
Based in Stavanger and Oslo, our team combines extensive global experience in the shipping industry with leading-edge technology development.
Sigmund Kyvik and Geir Olafsen
Sigmund and Geir founded Siglar Carbon in 2016 after deciding to do something about the lack of data-driven decision-making in commercial shipping. They soon realised another major industry challenge, namely the need to cut shipping emissions. They took on both challenges and decided to give the industry a digital tool enabling data-driven emissions decisions.
Today they lead a team of 25 people who combine extensive experience and understanding of the global shipping industry with leading edge technology to predict future shipping emissions, and are proud to say that the Siglar reporting standard is used by 40% of world tanker owners and 20% of all spot voyages in the oil and gas market.
It is the quantity, quality and granularity of Siglar’s data that sets their emission estimates apart from other predictions.
Sigmund Kyvik (CEO)
Sigmund has a lifelong career and extensive network in global shipping and trading. Prior to the Siglar experience he was Global lead trader for Equinor light ends.
Geir Olafsen (CDO)
25 years in shipping analytics, markets and brokerage, building digital solutions combining business intelligence with industry experience. Geir has an extensive network in global shipping.
Media stories and examples of how media use our emissions analytics to underline the environmental impact in their shipping stories.
A roundtrip from the Gulf of Mexico to Rotterdam may increase from USD 1.6m to more than USD 2m for a supertanker when the EU’s carbon quota
Using the estimator to compare the carbon consequence of commercial decisions prior to fixing can unlock great decarbonisation potential.
The Stavanger-based company has developed a digital platform for measuring, reporting, and estimating international shipping emissions.

For charterers and traders, access to the right insights at the right time might halve emissions from single voyages. On a TC2 voyage 1,300 tonnes of CO2 and its related carbon cost could be avoided by making one single data-based decision. A partnership between London Stock Exchange Group and Siglar Carbon provides actionable emissions data to trading desks, where great carbon and cost reduction potential can be unleashed.

Siglar Carbon and the “Impact Today” working group are calling for a new standard vessel report that simplifies the reporting process and enhances the quality of data input. High quality data input improves decision foundation and allows for both ship and cargo owners to optimise operation and reduce emissions.

Siglar Carbon and Vortexa are launching a partnership to to promote commercial decarbonisation by increasing the impact of ship emissions insight in commercial shipping decisions. Providing actionable emissions insight to decision-makers will promote carbon efficient decisions and drive industry decarbonisation.

Siglar Carbon launches a free and neutral tool for estimating and comparing emissions from tanker voyages. Using the Siglar Carbon Estimator to compare the carbon consequence of commercial decisions prior to fixing can unlock potential that lies within a commercial decarbonization of the shipping industry.

We are excited to see the first version of Climate TRACE world emissions map and intelligence being published, and proud to say that Siglar Carbon played a small part, reviewing their maritime prediction model. We share the goal of making emissions insight available, because effective decarbonization starts with detailed knowledge of emissions sources – also in the maritime industry.
