(www.MaritimeCyprus.com) We have seen a perfect storm of events over the last few years. Following the turbulence of the pandemic, our industry now finds itself dealing with the situation in Ukraine, the legacy of COVID and of course the incorporation of IMO's greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets into everyday ship operations.
The future is of course far from certain. But one certainty we do have is that reducing emissions is, and will continue to be, the single most important global issue we face.
The shipping industry has already made significant progress in emissions reduction in the last 10 years and is striving to achieve IMO's ambitious targets which may soon aim for zero emission shipping by 2050.
Environmental excellence requires collaboration. If we are to see a future of zero-emission shipping, responsibility cannot be placed solely on the shoulders of shipowners.
The responsibilities of dry cargo charterers, shippers, receivers, ports and terminals must not be underestimated. Against this backdrop, INTERCARGO continues to address the key issues that the dry bulk industry has always faced.
