If the marine transport industry were a country, it would rank as the sixth highest carbon emitter in the world. As such, the industry has been mandated by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to reduce emissions intensity by at least 40% by 2030, and absolute emissions at least 50% by 2050, compared to 2008 levels.
On land, widespread decarbonization is occurring quickly through policy changes, technology innovation, and the willingness to adapt. The maritime transport industry must act similarly to achieve large-scale improvements in sustainability.
Moderated by Foreship Oy, join speakers from Bloom Energy, Shipbuilder Fincantieri, UC Berkeley’s Transportation Sustainability Research Center, and Environmental Defense Fund as they explore the research, policy, and technological innovations that must come together to help maritime transport meet its 2030 emissions standards. They will discuss how the industry can leverage recent market momentum in renewable hydrogen to accelerate these efforts and drive toward a zero-carbon future.
