Report-launch event: Nordic Action for a Transformation to Low-carbon Shipping

  • MDC 33B Amaliegade København K, 1256 Denmark (map)

MDC invites you to the launch of the report: Nordic Action for a Transformation to Low-carbon Shipping.

This Report outlines the findings of a project commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers, focusing on opportunities for Nordic countries to achieve a transition to low-carbon shipping at national, regional and global scales. 

The Paris Agreement aims to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels (and pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5°C), but does not refer specifically to greenhouse gas emissions from the international maritime transport sector.

The Report presents a low-carbon roadmap for shipping with actions and outcomes concerning low-carbon technology, ship operations, finance, public policy, and public-private partnerships.
