Status: Complete (2019)
The shipping sector contributes about 3% of global green-house gas emissions. Although major international organizations like the IMO have set targets to reduce emissions, these targets are not in line with the IPCC’s 1.5-degree scenario.
Commissioned by Amplifier, sus.lab created a comprehensive report to understand the path towards zero-carbon emissions in shipping by 2050 for the Baltic and North Sea regions. The report analyses new technologies, identifies gaps in infrastructure development, assesses the economic viability and opportunities of alternative fuels and discusses the impact for the environment. Moreover, this report will provide an actionable guideline for ship owners, port operators, investors and policy makers to support this transition towards a more sustainable and green future of maritime transportation.
The report was launched on the 28th of October 2019 at a special event in Hamburg, Germany
Deep dive on technologies, looking at CO2 impact, readiness of technology and infrastructure and economics.
