UNCTAD Calls for Bold Global Action to Decarbonize Shipping and Ensure a Just Transition

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has called for a “just and equitable transition” to a decarbonized shipping industry in its Review of Maritime Transport 2023 launched ahead of World Maritime Day (28 September). The agency highlights the pressing need for cleaner fuels, digital solutions and an equitable transition to combat continued carbon emissions and regulatory uncertainty in the shipping industry.
