This week’s podcast explores the complex questions of finance, payback and a deeply conservative attitude to technology upgrades
The case for a shipping industry plan that is aligned to 1.5 degree Paris targets, that is well-to-wake and wrapped up with robust interim targets and the right language that ensures an equitable transition, is clear cut.
