SEVENTY maritime, energy, infrastructure and finance companies have joined the Global Maritime Forum, the Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum to launch the 'Getting to Zero' coalition at the UN Climate Action Summit.

The recent summit drew Maersk, Shell, Cargill, Trafigura and MISC to join the Getting to Zero Coalition, which aims to push shipping's decarbonisation and ensure that deep-sea zero vessels are zero emission by 2030.



'As an industry we need to ensure that the infrastructure and supply chain is in place to support this change,' said Lloyd's Register CEO Alistair Marsh, reports London's VPO (Vessel Propulsion Optimisation).



Said American Bureau of Shipping CEO Christopher Wiernicki: 'The greatest challenge of our generation - and the next - will be the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. That is why ABS is proud to be amongst the first to join the Getting to Zero Coalition.'



By signing up, companies commit to taking action to prevent pollution, manage their use of marine resources to ensure long-term sustainability and be transparent about their ocean-related activities and impacts.
