Can global trade be zero carbon? Lambeth and the shipping industry
Time & Location

About the Event
SIGN UP HERE
Lambeth hosts the headquarters of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), the UN agency that regulates global shipping. This giant industry ranks as the 6th biggest greenhouse gas polluter in the world in the country rankings, emitting twice as much as the whole UK economy. So what happens inside this building in Lambeth arguably matters more for the climate than decisions across the bridge in Westminster. However shipping has been neglected in climate discussions to date
This webinar will explain:
--what's the impact of shipping and our globalised trade system on oceans, marine life and climate?
--where are countries at in the negotiation process inside IMO?
--what are the short-term options to cut shipping emissions?
--how do we get ships completely off fossil fuels, and create zero-carbon trade routes?
Speaker: Ned Molloy is a consultant on shipping and climate change. He's advised government agencies, companies and NGOs on fuel prices, energy markets, and environmental regulation.
