Our journey to date: decarbonising shipping
Emission reductions, and especially greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction, is the challenge of the century for the maritime industry. Being the most efficient mode of transportation doesn’t mean that it’s an excuse for not acting. The industry has now recognised that in order to tackle climate change, shipping must make a significant contribution.
A de-fossilised future: how can we meet the challenges ahead?
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulation is a major driver for industry transformation. On April 2018, the IMO committed to reducing GHG by 40% by 2030 and total annual GHG emissions on a fleet level by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008. But due to an increasing number of vessels, by 2050 the increase should be 70% or even 80% on a vessel level.
As a company with the most comprehensive portfolio at hand in the industry, we turn technology into solutions to enable a sustainable maritime industry.
