No turning back

The shipping industry is estimated to be responsible for around 3% of annual greenhouse gas emissions. Work towards decarbonisation is underway and the challenge is immense. Finding solutions – from fuels to technology – to facilitate one of the biggest transitions ever faced by the maritime industry must be a priority. There is lots being done and there is still so much more to do. There is no turning back.

Ships make the world go

Without shipping, life would be different. We would have limited access to a lot of the food we consume, pharmaceuticals, clothes and consumer goods, as around 90 percent of world trade is transported by ship.

They too deserve to go home safely after work. Governments need to recognise the important role that seafarers play in society. What if it all stopped? Seafarers Deserve Support
