Assessing the impact of future emission reductions

Assessing the impact of future emission reductions

The success of IMO 2020 shows what the marine industry can achieve when it coordinates its response to far-reaching change. This ability to adapt will be tested again by the IMO’s ambition to reduce the carbon intensity of international shipping by at least 40% by 2030, moving to 70% by 2050, compared with 2008.

Meeting these targets will require new technologies and an intensified level of consultation and cooperation around fuel and lubricant development, policies, standards and rules.

In order get an idea of the scale of the issue, ExxonMobil’s latest white paper, ‘Lessons learned and taking the next step’, collected the thoughts of range of leading industry professionals.

The contributors include Christos Chryssakis, Senior Researcher, DNV, Ashley Jenkins, Director, John H Whitaker (Tankers), Lars Malmbratt, General Manager Marine Fuels, Stena Bulk, and Maximilian Rothkopf, Chief Operating Officer, Hapag-Lloyd.
