With the Paris Agreement in the bag, France has now set its sight firmly on decarbonising shipping
The event, dubbed as the ‘Tony deBrum Declaration’, will talk about how zero carbon shipping is possible today. The event brings together high profile politicians, to discuss commitments for the decarbonisation of shipping, and industry, including CMA CGM, ABB, STX France & Engie, to discuss the commercial reality of zero emissions shipping.
Dr Tristan Smith and Isabelle Rojon from UMAS will be involved in the panel discussions. This follows their recent webinar; The low carbon shipping seascape: current debate, challenges and opportunities (presentation webinar recording). The events are timed ahead of the International Maritime Organisation's Marine Environment Protection Committee’s 72nd session which will aim to finalise the initial GHG strategy, shipping's climate deal.
In order to be in line with the temperature goals of the Paris Agreement, the shipping sector must aim for 70-100% reduction in absolute GHG emissions by 2050 on 2008 levels, as outlined in ISWG GHG 2/2/12 by Belgium et al.
