Skou pitches minimum $450 per tonne of fuel tax on ships in the ‘medium term’

Maersk's chief executive said the company advocates a global tax of at least $450 per tonne of fuel oil — around $150 per tonne of CO2 — ‘in the medium term at the current oil price’ to bridge the gap between fossil and zero carbon fuels
