The shipping industry is a significant emitter of CO2, a greenhouse gas. Unchecked these emissions are likely to grow over the next decades and could constitute up to 18% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions by 2050, which would increase the likelihood of dangerous climate change. This paper discusses a new research project to study the individual components of the global shipping system in order to guide the development of technologies and operation strategies for the reduction of shipping's CO2 emissions. The magnitude of possible reductions and their consequences to the shipping industry will be investigated. © 2010 The Royal Institution of Naval Architects.
