#SpotlightOnShipping sees Maritime CEO in conversation with industry leaders to tackle decarbonization agenda

A new video series bringing together leaders from across the shipping industry to tackle some of the most pressing challenges confronting shipping's decarbonization efforts has been launched by DNV GL - Maritime.

'Spotlight on Shipping' sees Maritime CEO, Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, in conversation with industry leaders to hear their insights about how their organizations are working to comply with the IMO's ambitious Green House Gas strategy.

The series aims to offer shipping stakeholders insights and showcase best practices for answering to what Ørbeck-Nilssen has dubbed the "grand challenge of our time."

The first episode sees Ørbeck-Nilssen in conversation with Dr Grahaeme Henderson, Shell's Global Head of Shipping and Maritime. Among the topics discussed by Ørbeck-Nilssen and Henderson are how Shell is progressing with its decarbonization journey, Shell's collaborations with the wider industry to achieve reduced GHG emissions, and the kinds of fuels and technologies Shell is investing in.

Watch the first episode here:

Consistent with the Paris Agreement temperature goals, the IMO's current GHG strategy envisages a reduction in carbon intensity of international shipping (to reduce CO2 emissions per transport work, as an average across international shipping, by at least 40% by 2030, pursuing efforts towards 70% by 2050, compared to 2008); and that total annual GHG emissions from international shipping should be reduced by at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008.
