Industry Transition Strategy

Launching on 25 October 2021

The maritime sector is called upon from all sides to take climate action, but the big question is how we reduce the 3% of global Green House Gas emissions that the global shipping fleet accounts for today. On Monday 25 October we launch our first Industry Transition Strategy which outlines the challenge ahead and points towards viable decarbonization pathways. Our virtual launch event is open to all - join us to get the key findings and conclusions from the strategy report and get the perspectives from leading government and industry representatives.
