Sweden plots course to zero-emissions shipping

The Swedish Shipowners’ Association is currently preparing a road map with the government initiative Fossil Free Sweden to totally decarbonize domestic shipping by 2045, five years ahead of the International Maritime Organization’s deadline. With a goal of becoming climate-neutral by 2045, Sweden aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions from domestic transport by 70% by 2030, despite freight being expected to increase by around half over the same period. The road map for domestic shipping has not been published in its entirety, but the two organizations behind it outlined the seven areas in which the industry will have to act.
