The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Sailing on solar

Baroness Bryony Worthington, executive director of the Environmental Defense Fund, joins the Lloyd’s list Podcast this week to talk decarbonisation and how the industry can set about finding a positive, pragmatic set of solutions to hit the 2050 targets to halve CO2 emissions.

Listen to the latest edition of Lloyd’s List’s weekly podcast — your weekly briefing on the stories shaping shipping in the week ahead

“WE’RE looking for solutions,” explains Baroness Bryony Worthington, executive director of the Environmental Defense Fund, in this week’s podcast. “We’re not here to beat the industry up or point fingers, we’re looking for what’s possible.”

The EDF believes that international shipping can meet its target of at least halving its emissions by 2050, and can unleash trillions of dollars of investment opportunities in sustainable industrial infrastructure — particularly in developing countries — by using clean fuel such as “green” ammonia, as long as the fuel is produced using untapped renewable potential without increasing fossil fuel use.

The EDF’s new report, Sailing on Solar, identifies green ammonia, a fossil fuel substitute that does not produce greenhouse gas emissions when used by ships, as one of the most promising of several potential shipping fuels that produce zero emissions. But speaking on the podcast Baroness Worthington examines the wider issues around shipping’s decarbonisation project and sets out a number of pragmatic policy directions that could help accelerate the required innovation to meet the generational targets.
