The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why decarbonisation requires more than aspirational soundbites

The transition to zero-carbon shipping is riddled with uncertainties, most outside of the control of shipping companies and the industry itself, so why do so many shipping executives seem so certain about timelines and fuel strategy? ‘This is not a challenge where success is measured by the best soundbite or the best aspirational goal or date you set yourself,’ counters Bud Darr, MSC’s executive vice-president of maritime policy and government affairs in this week’s podcast.

Black carbon pollution in the Arctic makes up a growing share of shipping’s contribution to climate change. Regulation is still far off, despite a decade of lobbying. But tackling black carbon offers shipping a relatively easy way to make a meaningful difference — and to be seen to do so
