If you think the ocean isn't important, imagine Earth without it. Mars comes to mind. No ocean, no life support system.
No blue. No green.

Accelerating the Blue Economy

Challenges for the Maritime Industry

Many talk about the Blue Economy and the sustainable growth of the marine and maritime sectors to harness the untapped potential of oceans, seas and coasts as drivers for the  green economy. At the crossroads of many industries and interests, an ocean of opportunities lies ahead.

Addressing an increasing demand

With the largest volumes of international trade in goods shipped by sea, and yet a relatively lower environmental impact associated to it, harbours and shipping companies are facing intense pressures to further decarbonise their operations.

Beyond its own operations, the Maritime Industry is also recognised a major enabler for the energy transition and a lever to further decarbonise other sectors.

Managing the waste and pollution

Ever wondered what happens to big cargos and smaller fishing boats at the end of their lifespan? Or how are the dredging sediments and hazardous materials are being managed considering the volumes extracted every year? 

Harbours as well as shipping companies are facing stringent regulations in this regard, requiring fast adaptation of their facilities and operations, on and off-shore.

Finding ways to cope with resource scarcity

Ports and ships need vast amounts of energy for cargo-handling equipment, ground transport, electricity generation, and vessel propulsion. If the maritime industry was its own country, it would rank sixth on the list of largest GHG emitters.

It also accounts for 9% of sulfur oxides (SOx) and 18% of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions annually. Due to the natural confluence of multi-modal activities, harbours often experience higher concentrations of GHG emissions.

Understanding the CSRD

CSRD: Another (big) step forward

Great news from the EU: The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) promotes increased transparency and harmonized disclosure for sustainability information in financial reports. Broadening the Non-Financial Reporting Directive’s scope, CSRD introduces double materiality and standardized reporting, which will be progressively implemented between 2025-2029.

The role of industries in climate change mitigation

The IPCC report underscores rising greenhouse gas emissions, mainly from industry. Declining low-emission technology costs and increased usage aid mitigation of climate change. Decarbonization, sustainable options, international cooperation, and policy implementation are vital for a net-zero industry and climate resilience.

The window of opportunity to address climate change is decreasing

This article highlights climate change’s adverse impacts on humans and ecosystems, exacerbating vulnerability and global inequalities. These details are in the IPCC report. Climate risk depends on mitigation and adaptation efforts. Integrating these measures enables climate-resilient development. Maladaptation can be avoided with inclusive, long-term planning.
