    Engines and onboard systems

    The Getting to Zero Coalition is committed to accelerating shipping decarbonization by getting commercially viable deep sea zero emission vessels powered by zero emission fuels into operation by 2030 to put shipping on a path for full decarbonization by 2050. To unpack the different fuels and technologies options that could support the transition to zero emission fuels, the workstream on Fuels & Technologies has hosted a series of webinars, gathering perspectives from experts across the maritime value chain – shipowners, operators, charterers, financial institutions, classification societies, and NGOs. The insight briefing paper series aims to reach a broader audience and build a common understanding of the fuels, engines, and storage technologies that will enable the decarbonization transition.

    War in Ukraine: Seafarers suffering human rights violations need our continued support

    The Russian invasion of Ukraine has sent shockwaves around the world. As the two countries plunge deeper into war the impact of the conflict on the global seaborne trade and supply chain has been reacted too swiftly by the international maritime sector. However, for the seafarers facing human rights violations and ever-worsening conditions, there is both a need and opportunity to do more, quickly.

    Insight Brief: How the EU can catalyze the global transition to zero-emission shipping and the green hydrogen economy

    The EU Commission has proposed a range of policy and regulatory measures as part of the ‘Fit for 55’ package, which has the potential to unlock zero-emission shipping investment in Europe.This will further catalyze global climate action and the transition to the green hydrogen economy, however, ‘Fit for 55’ includes design flaws that if not amended will work against full shipping decarbonization by 2050 and the objectives of the EU Hydrogen Strategy.

    This Insight Brief outlines the design flaws of ‘Fit for 55’ in relation to shipping decarbonization and highlights points for improvement.
