GHG emissions 2030 in shipping – Analysis of the maximum technical abatement potential

To analyze the greenhouse gas emissions of international shipping based on the fuel life cycle (WtW). The main finding is that global shipping can reduce carbon emissions by half within 10 years with minimal impact on international trade.

According to the report, by 2030, emissions are projected to decrease by 36 to 47 percent compared to 2008 through the use of 5 to 10 percent zero or near-zero fuels, wind assistance technology, and ‘climate optimizing’ of ships.
