Can slashing shipping emissions be done without harming global trade?

June 26, 2023

Study commissioned by Transport & Environment, Seas at Risk, Ocean Conservancy and Pacific Environment shows that shipping can halve emissions without impacting trade

In the context of ongoing negotiations on the revision of the IMO’s climate strategy, CE Delft has analysed the maximum technical abatement
potential for international shipping by 2030.

The report concludes that about 36%-47% absolute emissions reduction can be technically achieved by 2030 compared to 2008 with high operational and technical efficiency and 5-10% (near) zero emission fuels uptake. The total increase in total cost of operation (TCO) of such stringent emissions reductions will only be about 6-10% by 2030.
