Curbing shipping and onshore emissions was a hot topic at COP26 in Glasgow, with 14 nations signing a declaration to bring shipping emissions down to net zero by 2050. Getting the industry to zero emissions will require the sector to move away from fossil fuel-based marine fuels and toward more expensive, zero-carbon alternatives. Market-based incentives, major investments, data tracking, and R&D will be critical to move the industry to meet aggressive emissions goals. This panel discusses the steps already being taken by North American ports and the steps needed.
