The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why shipping can’t solve its problems alone

Nor-Shipping has inevitably been dominated by discussion of decarbonisation, but amid the tech-led innovation proposals and puff, a growing consensus of industry leaders are finally talking about cross-sectorial collaboration being the key to clean shipping. Joining Lloyd’s List Editor this week to discuss what it will take to create a tipping point in shipping is Katherine Palmer, the global head of sustainability for Lloyd’s Register’s Marine and Offshore business

“YOU can’t decouple shipping from how the rest of the economy is going to decarbonise,” explains class society Lloyd’s Register head of sustainability Katherine Palmer on this week’s podcast, which was recorded at Nor-Shipping in Oslo. 

“It’s about understanding the whole supply chain. We can’t do this on our own.” 

All roads have led to decarbonisation discussions at Nor-Shipping this year and while many industry leaders have taken to the conference podium with increasingly robust confidence in their solutions, the scale of the challenge is now clear for the whole industry to see. More significantly perhaps is the dawning realisation that this is not shipping specific at all.

For all the current focus on emissions, the real solutions lie in finding efficiencies well beyond the scope of the vessel and that requires collaboration with the cargo interests, banks, insurers — indeed the whole supply chain.
