The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why we can’t allow climate talks to become a COP out

COP27 failed to deliver much in the way of progress. For shipping, though, the next steps in the IMO are what will determine the trajectory of whatever happens next.

But is shipping making any progress towards those goals?
