The quest for sustainable practices in various industries has never been as urgent as it is today, and the global shipping industry is no exception. As a contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, it faces the essential task of transforming its operations towards more eco-friendly and efficient alternatives.
How the Global Shipping Industry Affects Climate Change
The environmental impact of shipping is substantial, contributing around 3% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions from ships are primarily composed of sulfur and nitrogen compounds, contributing to air pollution, acid rain, and health issues. Climate change, sea-level rise, and ocean acidification are some of the far-reaching effects that these emissions can cause.
