Why Sustainability Matters for the Maritime Industry

Decarbonization is top of mind for the entire maritime shipping industry, with 95% of stakeholders considering it a key priority.1

In addition to its obvious importance, sustainability has a significant commercial impact, and it must be carefully and actively managed throughout the workflow. What role does decarbonization play in your commercial workflow today?

Several key shifts in the industry have made sustainability a key focal point, including:

  • Industry-wide initiatives like the Sea Cargo Charter, coupled with regulations like IMO 2020, IMO 2023, and EU/ETS.
  • Pressure from counterparties on both sides of the contract to adopt a more proactive ESG strategy.
  • The pivotal role of the maritime shipping industry in protecting our oceans.
