Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Decarbonising Maritime Transport

Pathways to zero-carbon shipping by 2035

This report examines what would be needed to achieve zero CO2 emissions from international maritime transport by 2035. It assesses measures that can reduce shipping emissions effectively and describes possible decarbonisation pathways that use different combinations of these measures. In addition, it reviews under which conditions these measures could be implemented and presents concrete policy recommendations.

Policy Insights

  • Set a clear, ambitious emissions-reduction target to drive decarbonisation of maritime transport.
  • Support the realisation of emissions-reduction targets with a comprehensive set of policy measures.
  • Provide smart financial incentives to advance the decarbonisation of maritime shipping.
