going at the right pace to improve fuel efficiency of shipping, help clear the air we breathe and protect marine animals.
Maritime transport is the cornerstone of international trade. Over the last several decades, the increased efficiency of shipping has made it even easier to buy and sell goods very quickly and over long distances. Today, thousands of commercial ships are travelling all over the globe, connecting international economies with one another. However, this growth of larger and faster ships does not come without unintended consequences. Above the ocean’s surface, the global shipping sector and maritime trade contribute significantly to the production of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide.
