Marine sector decarbonisation – industry initiatives and resources

The construction vessel sector finds itself confronted with a pressing need to address its environmental footprint and actively participate in global shipping initiatives aimed at mitigating climate change. Operating as an essential component in the establishment of offshore wind farms and energy infrastructure and with a reliance on conventional propulsion systems powered by fossil fuels, construction vessel operators face a formidable challenge.

The wider shipping industry has embarked on a journey to decarbonise by 2050 through a combination of technological innovations, regulatory frameworks, and collaborative endeavours.

This Information Note (1659) describes three industry collaborations and their respective value to IMCA Members.
