  • Shipping and net zero
  • What is the legal framework surrounding decarbonising of shipping? How much of the world’s emissions stem from shipping?
  • Are shipping companies making net zero pledges? Which companies are leading the charge and in what part of the shipping sector is this being seen—owners, charterers etc?
  • Where is the pressure coming from to make these pledges—stakeholders, regulatory drivers?
  • How will these companies achieve these pledges practically?
  • How will Brexit affect any of this (if at all—as the EU climate change legislation is still in draft vs UK Climate Change Act 2008 (CCA 2008) commitments)?
  • Are there any other interesting angles in this area from other jurisdictions that are relevant, given that shipping doesn’t affect just one region?
