Charting A Course For Decarbonizing Maritime Transport

Event Details

Friday, 23 April 2021

7pm – 8.30pm



Maritime transport has come under increased pressure to lower, and ultimately eliminate, its contributions to global greenhouse gas emissions.

To inform shipping’s energy transition and support the sector’s climate action, the World Bank has developed two technical reports, titled “The Potential of Zero-Carbon Bunker Fuels in Developing Countries” and “The Role of LNG in the Transition Toward Low-and Zero-Carbon Shipping.”

The launch of these reports will be accompanied by a “Summary for Policymakers and Industry,” discussing the key findings from a development perspective. This launch event will also highlight current country ambitions and industry initiatives aimed at building up a zero-carbon bunker fuel supply chain based on green hydrogen.
