The importance of short-term measures to reduce carbon emissions in shipping

The IMO’s latest GHG reduction strategy and targets are a major step in the right direction, but much more needs to be done if we are to meet ambitious climate goals. We must remain focused and committed to finding solutions that balance both environmental protection and sustained economic growth. Short-term solutions are available to quickly reduce carbon emissions from shipping. From the rapid adoption of high-performance energy efficiency technologies and expediting of UNCTAD’s impact assessments, there are multiple avenues for our industry to take meaningful strides ahead in step with other global actors. Together across the industry, we can make a difference by taking bold steps today – instead of tomorrow.
