Maritime sector’s commitment to act on climate change highlighted

“The IMO community is highly committed to tackling climate change,” IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim says, in an interview for Making Waves: The Future of Shipping, a news-style video launched at IMO Headquarters (13 September) as part of London International Shipping Week.

The programme showcases the collaborative efforts already in place across the maritime industry to decarbonise. The IMO segment outlines the latest mandatory energy efficiency measures for ships, including the ship carbon intensity indicator rating system. The video explains how IMO is supporting efforts to look at alternative fuels and the application of new technologies, highlighting the global projects which aim to ensure no one is left behind in shipping’s transition. 

The Future of Shipping sends a clear message about the need for action in tackling climate change to reduce the international shipping industry’s footprint on the environment. The programme was produced in collaboration with the UK Chamber of Shipping, the British Ports Association and Content With Purpose.
