Pathways to Sustainable Low Carbon Shipping
Pages count: 107
Description: International shipping is facing the critical challenge of sustainability in response to global regulations
for pollution prevention and protection of the aquatic environment. During the past 30 years, the enacted
regulations were shaped in equal parts by responses to environmental incidents, disruptive periods of
technological innovation and changing priorities among marine regulators, all of which were intended to
improve operational efficiency, protect the environment or enhance workplace safety.
In every instance — from the IMO’s mandate of the double hull oil tanker design and onwards — the
conception, formulation and, especially, implementation of regulations would have been greatly aided by a
comprehensive, living document that summarized the challenges and offered current solutions.
As no such document existed, the maritime industry has often experienced long periods of uncertainty as it
sought to interpret the new mandates, and harness technology to comply with those mandates.
As the industry adjusts to the current impact of the IMO’s 2020 sulfur cap — and prepares for the emerging
regulatory changes in 2030 and 2050 — there is consensus that adapting to the new rules and challenges
aimed at lowering its collective carbon footprint will be another period of uncertainty driven by disruptive
environmental legislation, and defined by the innovative solutions which emerge.
