How shall the maritime industry reach the ambitious targets of IMO?

In April 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) approved a historical strategy for CO2 and other GHG´s from shipping. The strategy includes concrete reduction targets for the sector and requires shipping to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030, pursuing efforts towards total 50% GHG reductions in 2050, compared to 2008.

Dansk skibsbygning under besættelsen

Under besættelsen var danske skibsværfter optaget af reparation, vedligeholdelse, renovering og nybyggeri til den danske flåde samt den tyske handelsflåde og krigsmarine.

Søværnets skibsværfter havde travlt med at opbygge flåden i vores besatte land. Så travlt, at den danske flåde i perioden 9. april 1940 til 29. august 1943 tilføjede flere nybygninger end i perioden 1920-1940.

Derudover leverede skibsværfterne et betydeligt antal handelsskibe til besættelsesmagten, men også regulære krigsskibe til kamp mod de allierede.

The international shipping industry is facing an increasingly tighter regulatory environment, especially when it comes to “emissions to air”. With the recent decision at IMO to implement the global sulphur cap in 2020, combined with the international shipping’s commitment to reducing its CO2 emissions - to match the spirit and ambitions of the Paris Agreement - the pressure is on.
