The impact of shipping’s energy efficiency measures on reduction of underwater radiated noise, and opportunities for co-benefit
This ICS sponsored study highlights the significant synergy between the implementation of energy efficiency strategies and the reduction of URN.
The first full-scale survey of risk and confidence among maritime leaders, this report presents insights into the issues preoccupying key maritime decision-makers and how they are placed to manage their impact.
A report commissioned by the International Chamber of Shipping, written by researchers at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester
Shipping will continue to play a vital role in helping national economies to chart a course towards economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. This Trade Policy Review outlines some of the major strategic projects undertaken by the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) on behalf of the global shipping industry, in promoting and advancing the principles of free trade, fair competition and market access, to ensure that policymakers are equipped with the most accurate and up-to-date industry information.
A call to action to governments from the global shipping industry. This manifesto is intended to ensure that, in the best interests of all national economies, the world will continue to have access to efficient and more cost effective maritime services.
Decarbonisation and the creation of (net) zero carbon fuels presents a significant economic opportunity for shipowners, companies and countries, as fuel producers, importers and exporters. This summary report outlines how shipping will play a fundamental role in delivering these fuels globally and act as an enabler for governments and industries to achieve their climate targets.
Decarbonisation and the creation of (net) zero carbon fuels presents a significant economic opportunity for shipowners, companies and countries, as fuel producers, importers and exporters. This report presents new research that demonstrates how shipping will play a fundamental role in delivering these fuels globally and act as an enabler for governments and industries to achieve their climate targets.
The devastating impact of the pandemic was unforeseen, but its potential effects were not entirely unexpected and the shipping industry had highlighted these previously, including through submissions to UN fora, following the outbreaks on Ebola, Avian Flu and SARS. The research outlined in this report investigates macro and micro-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the shipping industry and highlights some key lessons learned.
A massive scaling up of finance for research and development is essential to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050. This report outlines the urgent steps that will be required to completely transform shipping’s current dominant propulsion technology and fuels landscape, and provides a blueprint for governments and industry to target their investment in innovation.
