Climate Action in Shipping: Progress Towards Shipping’s 2030 Breakthrough

By Charlotte Owen-Burge | November 9, 2023

This report tracks the progress adoption of scalable zero emission fuel (SZEF) of at least 5% of the international shipping fuel energy mix by 2030 relative to the total energy demand used, and compares this against last year’s progress.

After the  IMO’s Strategy on Reduction of GHG Emissions from Ships pathway was specified in 2023, shipping will need to achieve both a maximisation of energy efficiency this decade (2030) and have advanced through the emergence phase of a transition from fossil fuels to fuels produced from renewable energy.

To reach 5% and go beyond by 2030, immediate action is necessary.
