Why is Decarbonization Important?

Currently, the Marine Industry is responsible for emitting about 2.5% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The IMO already set a target to reduce at least 50% of the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and at least 70% of the average carbon intensity from shipping by 2050.

These new targets present a challenge to the marine industry as time is short. Everyone, from ship owners, charterers, and cargo owners to ship builders, designers, engine manufacturers, fuel suppliers, financiers, and policy makers will need to transition to zero-carbon or carbon-neutral fuels and technologies that simultaneously improve efficiency.

As a trusted partner of 30 years, The Viswa Group is committed to helping the marine industry meet the IMO’s ambitious 2050 targets through innovative and sustainable solutions.

The Value of Decarbonization Technology

The evidence is clear that decarbonization technology and initiatives must be implemented now in order to achieve IMO targets.

Implementing zero-carbon solutions can help
shipping industry achieve:

  • Improved health and safety.
  • Reduced waste.
  • Improved reputation and efficiency.
  • Low maintenance costs.
