The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Shipping’s hydrogen future

CMB’s chief executive Alexander Saverys believes that hydrogen offers shipping’s best bet to reach a zero carbon future and he is investing heavily to that end. But even he concedes that things are moving too slowly, and greater collaboration and partnerships will be required before the technological challenges can be overcome. He joins Lloyd’s List editor Richard Meade on this week’s podcast to discuss the industry’s green investment conundrum and why a collective effort is going to be required to hit the industry’s 2050 emissions goals.

On this week’s podcast we’re taking another look at the latest developments for shipping in the Strait of Hormuz and examining Lloyd’s List’s latest analysis of the Top 100 box ports. British tankers may no longer subject to price discrimination on war risk insurance for trips to the Gulf, provided they are under naval escort when transiting the Strait of Hormuz, but that suggests a level of stability in the region that doesn’t yet exist.
