Shipping defy Trump's environmental policy

Shipping defy Trump's environmental policy

The Danish Shipowners' Association wants the Danish shipping companies at the forefront of the struggle to ensure lower CO2 emissions from shipping. Although the US president-elect Donald Trump wants to halt the US involvement in the climate battle.

Donald Trump has previously left no doubt that the struggle for a better climate is not at the top of his agenda. But then the industries must take the lead, says the Danish Shipowners' Association.
"When negotiations on shipping's reduction plan is launched in the new year, the Danish shipping companies will take the lead to ensure that the CO2 strategy is going to be both ambitious and realistic," said the association in a comment that was published on altinget.dk on Monday.

The Danish shipowners' association wishes that emissions will not exceed the current share of the world's total CO2 emissions of 2,2 percent.
"That roughly means that shipping emissions would need to peak by 2025 and be halved by 2050 compared with levels in today. In the second half of this century, emissions must go to zero ".

The Danish Shipowners' Association indicates that it will require both technical and operational initiatives - and a global tax on fuel. Ultimately, the use of fossil fuels must be completely abolished, but the association recognizes that a switch to hydrogen for example, is far away at this point.
