Pathways to zero-carbon shipping by 2035.
This is the title of a recent White paper published by International Transport Forum, an intergovernmental organisation with 59 member countries. It acts as a think tank for transport policy and organises the Annual Summit of transport ministers. ITF is the only global body that covers all transport modes. The ITF is politically autonomous and administratively integrated with the OECD.
Maximum deployment of currently known technologies could make it possible to reach almost complete decarbonisation of maritime shipping by 2035. The four potential decarbonisation pathways for shipping identified in this report would result in a CO2 emission reduction between 82% and 95% of the currently projected 2035 level. This reduction equals the annual emissions of approximately 185 coal-fired power plants. Remaining CO2 emissions would be between 44 and 156 million tonnes in 2035.
