A new study on how vessels can achieve zero emissions has been released by Lloyd’s Register (LR) and University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS), showing what is needed for shipping as it heads toward the IMO 2050 greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction strategy.

Maersk has set out a vision to achieve zero carbon dioxide emission by 2050, with an intermediate goal of having carbon neutral vessels commercially viable by 2030.

The UK Government has set up a team of experts to advise on the future of the maritime industry and how the country can stay at the forefront in the development of new technologies such as autonomous ships and digital ports.

ICS says it is “confident” of a 50% CO2 reduction from shipping by 2050 despite the growth of maritime trade, ahead of the Paris UN Climate Change Conference in December.
