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.

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why sustainable shipping is about more than just carbon reduction

Sustainability is about more than carbon reduction, but we are currently evaluating the shift to new fuels on the basis of price, availability and technical feasibility. The ability to provide transportation infrastructure and services that are safe, socially inclusive, accessible, reliable, affordable, fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly, low-carbon and resilient to shocks and disruptions including those caused by climate change and natural disasters — that’s a much bigger conversation. Are we as an industry genuinely looking for real reductions in greenhouse gas emissions or is this simply a question of tick box accounting? This week’s podcast looks for a more holistic discussion on shipping’s sustainability challenge with an international panel of experts from Lloyd’s Register, China Navigation and WWF.

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Shipping’s nuclear option

Nuclear power is back on the agenda in shipping.

On the podcast this week we talk to Mikal Boe, founder and chief executive of London-based Core-Power, about why nuclear now needs to move from the fringes of the environmental debate to become a serious part of shipping’s decarbonisation strategy

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why Africa should be higher up shipping’s investment agenda

The potential of Africa’s booming demographics are clear, but shipping has focused more on the risk than the rewards in recent years. That could be about to change with the US is increasingly looking like it wants to pivot to Africa and significant developments across several countries warranting a more optimistic looking at the near-term growth opportunities for maritime trade. Podcast regular Mark Williams, managing director of Shipping Strategy joins Lloyd’s List Editor Richard Meade this week to discuss the opportunities.
