A group of fuel production stakeholders, including H2Carrier and MAN Energy Solutions, joined Environmental Defense Fund in support for the full decarbonization of the shipping industry by 2050, says an article published on Biofuelsdigest.
Adopt ambitious interim targets
The companies call on International Maritime Organization (IMO) Member States to develop policies that incentivize the production and adoption of sustainable fuels, and to adopt ambitious interim targets for 2030 and 2040 to eliminate emissions from shipping in line with the 1.5 degrees Celsius temperature goal of the Paris Agreement.
The request comes a few weeks before the 80th session of the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC 80) is set to revise its Initial Strategy on the Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Ships.
