FOSTERING A PLAN TO HALVE EMISSONS IN COMMERICAL SHIPPING

Commercial shipping's greenhouse gas emissions are something the International Maritime Organization, which oversees the industry, would want to reduce by half by midcentury and possibly even further this year. As IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim has stated, "decarbonization" is a concept that the shipping industry must fully embrace. If all goes according to plan, this passageway will serve as a model for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from shipping, which account for approximately 3% of global emissions. That's a lot, and it's on the rise; it's just less than what comes via automobiles, trucks, trains, and airplanes.
Major adjustments to vessels and infrastructure are needed to meet agency goals. This motivates efforts to establish "green shipping corridors" along major routes, where innovative practices and technology may be tested and implemented rapidly.

            International shipping is a large and growing source of greenhouse gas emissions. We support global action to tackle these emissions.

                    If financial needs are met,the 'decarbonization' plan will be possible.
