Carbon ambitions remain all at sea

The shipping industry needs firm rules on how to calculate the lifecycle emissions of alternative fuels before it can start to build a low-carbon future, according to ABS

Fresh from complying with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) 2020 regulations on low sulphur fuel, the shipping industry is facing the challenge of reducing CO2 emissions of its fuels by at least 40pc by 2030 and 70pc by 2050. This will require energy efficiency gains and decarbonisation measures at the very least—and, later, adopting entirely new types of fuel. Georgios Plevrakis, director of global sustainability for US maritime classification society ABS, is at the centre of this challenge.
