The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why sustainability needs digital solutions as well as decarbonisation

Shipping experts are calling for serious commitment on sustainability ‘NOW’ before it’s too late. What’s holding us back? Is the answer only to be found in zero carbon fuels, in which case how many years will it be until the right fuel or fuels have been trialled and tested under all conditions? What can be done while all this is going on, to reduce if not eliminate harmful emissions? And what has shipping discovered from several years of digitalisation to move us in the right direction? Roger Strevens, vice-president of global sustainability at Wallenius Wilhelmsen, explains why reducing carbon intensity by one-third since 2008 is not enough

Is this the golden age for shipping entrepreneurs?

A post-Covid surge in start-ups is expected, fuelled by abundant tech funding and targeting an ample supply of industry problems with their innovative solutions.

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why we shouldn’t dismiss shipping’s Black Trail

‘How shipping pollutes the planet, avoids taxes, dodges regulations, and gets away with it’ — is the eye-catching strapline to the recent documentary Black Trail which has caused a stir in shipping circles. The film may not have taught us anything new about emissions, policy-making or the business of shipping, but seeing an outsider’s view of shipping on display offers a revealing, and worrying, insight into how the industry is being portrayed. This week’s podcast features the two lead journalists behind the film Zeynep Sentek, and Craig Shaw.
