Global shipping community is joining forces to battle carbon emissions and avoid a climate disaster.
Zeaborn Ship Management is proud to announce to have become a signatory of the ‘Call to Action for Shipping Decarbonization’ where together with other industry pioneers we urge world leaders to align shipping with the Paris Agreement temperature goal. The private sector is already taking important steps to decarbonize global supply chains, but now governments must deliver the policies that will supercharge the transition and make zero emission shipping the default choice by 2030.
This call to action is set out by more than 150 industry leaders in conjunction with the UN General Assembly and ahead of the critical climate negotiations at COP26 in Glasgow this November, 2021. Together we call on governments to work together with industry to deliver the policies and investments needed to reach critical tipping points in decarbonization:
As signatories to the call to action we call on world leaders to:
Commit to decarbonizing international shipping by 2050 and deliver a clear and equitable implementation plan to achieve this when adopting the IMO GHG Strategy in 2023.
Support industrial scale zero emission shipping projects through national action, for instance by setting clear decarbonization targets for domestic shipping and by providing incentives and support to first movers and broader deployment of zero emissions fuels and vessels.
Deliver policy measures that will make zero emission shipping the default choice by 2030, including meaningful market-based measures, taking effect by 2025 that can support the commercial deployment of zero emission vessels and fuels in international shipping.
