It’s time: How to make shipping’s ‘Decade of Action’ a reality.


It’s time for the maritime industry to deliver decarbonisation. Not only that, but the pace of change needs to accelerate.  

The industry is no longer asking ‘if’ or ‘when’ decarbonisation should take place, the question that remains is ‘how’ will the maritime industry deliver meaningful change during this crucial decade of action.

Our new report, produced in association with Longitude, the research unit of the Financial Times,  brings together expert views and insights from the public and private sector on what the global maritime industry needs to do to make this decade of change a reality.
