In line with their joint project, “IMO-Norway GreenVoyage-2050 project”, IMO and Norway continue collaboration, with the latter providing an additional NOK 40,000,000 (US$4.3. million), further supporting GHG reductions, following IMO’s target for reducing GHG emissions from the shipping industry.
A newly-launched study focuses on the importance of reducing shipping emissions and its benefits in favour of humans’ health, nature and the environment by reducing vessels’ speed. The report highlights that a 20% reduction in vessels’ speed would decrease GHG emissions, as well as curb pollutants that pose great risks on human health, as black carbon and nitrogen oxides.
During the Global Maritime Forum in Singapore, the Getting to Zero Coalition analyzed its goals, with experts providing their opinion on what the coalition can offer and why it can benefit the shipping industry.
The Global Maritime Forum launched its 2019 “Global Maritime Issues Monitor” report addressing shipping’s current issues, from the diversity in maritime workforce to a zero-emission industry, based on the results of a survey of senior maritime stakeholders from 46 countries.
In line with IMO’s Initial Strategy for decarbonization of shipping, Greece has come forward with a concrete proposal for a short-term, prescriptive measure to improve the operational energy efficiency of existing ships, to be considered at the forthcoming meeting of the IMO’s intersessional technical group in November.
A global network of maritime technology cooperation centres has completed an array of pilot projects over the last three years, aiming to drive forward the changes which are necessary to reduce GHG emissions from shipping.
ClassNK announced its participation in the Getting to Zero Coalition highlighting its aspiration on achieving a greener and more sustainable future for the shipping industry. ClassNK supports that its participation in the initiative will boost and strengthen its GHG-emission targets.
Cargill, Maersk Tankers and Mitsui & Co. announced the establishment of a collaboration to advance the reduction of global greenhouse gases (GHGs) in shipping. The companies will work towards lowering maritime GHG emissions by fully exploiting existing fuel-saving technologies and exploring new technical solutions.
BIMCO submitted a proposal to the IMO that aims to help curb emissions by regulating ships’ power, rather than focusing on raw speed limits, and presents a way to cut emissions based on the average performance of each ship type trading at target operational speeds for the past three years.
Krishna Achuthanandam, Business Development Manager DLNG, Shell, talks about LNG, during a DNV GL webinar, explaining what LNG can offer, and why it is a viable solution for shipping to achieve decarbonization. Mr. Achuthanandam mentioned that regarding the environmental benefits LNG is the only scalable, low-carbon fuel available today, that helps us head towards carbon neutrality in shipping.
