Maritime Climate Forum Established to Reduce CO2 Emissions from Ship Transportation
Many Danish shipping companies already focus on reducing their energy consumption. According to the Danish Shipowners’ Association, Danish shipping companies have overall reduced the relative CO2 emissions by 30% over the past years. The Maritime Climate Forum is purposed to further the reduction of global CO2 emissions from the shipping industry.
“When Denmark takes the initiative with this partnership, we both manage our own emissions and improve our competitive advantage here and now, while at the same time strengthening our voice in the international negotiations. This is essential in order to take serious action on emissions from the shipping industry, says Minister for Climate, Energy and Building Martin Lidegaard.
