Setting the Stage: Strategies for Getting the Shipping Industry to Zero
The shipping industry delivers the essentials of life for billions of people but, without action, is forecast to be responsible for approximately 17% of global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by mid-century. De-risking investment in the sector is going to need unprecedented coordination, and a recent report by Shell and Deloitte, Decarbonising Shipping: All Hands on Deck, sets out to understand the views of senior executives across the shipping market on the barriers and potential solutions to decarbonizing shipping, aiming to drive more common understanding and catalyze action.
