The Isle of Man Ship Registry has become the first flag-state to join the Getting to Zero coalition.

Formed last year the Getting to Zero Coalition brings together 120 organisations from the maritime, energy, infrastructure and finance sectors in an industry alliance aimed at decarbonizing the shipping industry.

The coalition founded by an alliance of the Global Maritime Forum, the Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum, see developing viable zero emission deepsea vessels by 2030 as key to reaching the IMO’s 2050 CO2 reduction ambitions for shipping.

Cameron Mitchell, Director of the Isle of Man Ship Registry, said: “It is our collective responsibility to respond to the climate emergency by taking action to effect real change for the benefit of our environment and industry. The Getting to Zero Coalition brings together a diverse range of organisations and we are looking forward to working closely with them to help make commercially viable, zero-emission vessels a scalable reality.”

Mitchell added: “As a flag state we work in partnership with shipping lines, classification societies and shipyards around the world to ensure compliance with IMO rules. Our expertise, experience and existing relationships with key sector organisations mean we are well placed to champion the Getting to Zero message and support exciting new initiatives to decarbonise shipping.”
