Maritime sustainability

To begin to lower the marine industry’s impact on greenhouse gas emissions, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) established targets for the future. Maritime sustainability depends on the focus and commitment of the entire industry, from design through maintenance. This analyst report identifies several areas that digitalization technology can improve for sustainable performance.

Shipping emissions statistics

The IMO has set established targets for the marine industry to meet by the year 2030. Compared to 2008 shipping emissions statistics, the IMO aims to reduce carbon emissions by 40%. Collaboration and coordination will be required to reach this forward-thinking goal. Vessel operators and naval architects will need a technology framework built to take on robust requirements. Read more about data-driven technology and how it can help you reach IMO targets, in this analyst report.
