The Paris Agreement presented an ambitious goal of zero pollution by the second half of this century. The global shipping industry is responsible for 2,2 pct. of the CO2 emission. Danish Shipping wishes to reduce the shipping industries’ share of CO2 emission.
Danish Shipping believes that international regulation is the most efficient tool in the goal towards a CO2 reduction. Hence, Danish Shipping demands ambitious targets when supporting the Green House Gas Reduction Strategy developed by the International Maritime Organization, IMO. Additionally IMO must adapt operational mechanisms, optimal technological development and efficient cost reduction when targeting CO2 reduction from the shipping industry.
