Significant Long Term R&D Investments needed to Reach Zero-Carbon Emissions, Says ICS and Ricardo Report

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) is doing incredible work during COP26, and in the lead up to Saturday's 'Shaping the Future of Shipping' event to identify actions and recommendations for leaders at COP26 and IMO to decarbonise international shipping.

The shipping industry’s official COP26 sideline event, ‘Shaping the Future of Shipping’, will bring together leaders from the shipping, energy, climate sectors and international ministers to translate government ambitions set out at COP’s leaders’ summit and identify actions and recommendations for all parties, including IMO member states.

Ahead of COP26, ICS and global engineering, environmental and strategic consultancy Ricardo have released a report, A Zero Emission Blueprint for Shipping that outlines the urgent steps that will be required to completely transform shipping’s current dominant propulsion technology and fuels landscape in less than three decades.

Read more about the report and comments from ICS and Ricardo in the press release here.

The ‘Shaping the Future of Shipping’ event will be live streamed. To register to view the live stream of the Shaping the Future of Shipping conference please use this link.

MIAL has been working with ICS and Australian government contacts to ensure the Australian delegation to COP26 has a presence at the event. This is a valuable opportunity to increase understanding within the Australian government of decarbonization issues as they relate to the shipping industry. MIAL is the Australian member of ICS.
