The world is uniting to tackle climate change and accelerate action towards more sustainable ways of living. We are playing a key role in guiding the maritime industry through this green transition, to minimise shipping's impact on the environment, whilst continuing to meet the demands of global trade and energy markets.

BACKGROUND

Pressure to decarbonise

The shipping industry accounts for 2.4% of global CO2 emissions, and the necessity to cut is rising. Decarbonisation pressure is channelled through environmental policy measures, stakeholder requirements and expectations from the wider society. There is a mounting direct pressure on shipowners to decarbonise, accelerated by shifted market dynamics and stricter access to capital as cargo owners and financial institutions raise the environmental bar.

What does this mean for the maritime industry?

Immediate but careful consideration needs to be given to ship design, engine technology and fuel selection, as operational flexibility, charter attractiveness and asset valuations can be heavily impacted.

Shipowners should act now to minimise carbon risk and be positioned to seize commercial opportunities. The industry will not change over night, but starting today will lay the foundations for a successful transition.
