Shipping industry group backs putting a price on carbon

A major maritime industry association on Monday backed plans for a global surcharge on carbon emissions from shipping as a way to help fund the sector’s shift toward climate-friendly fuels.

The International Chamber of Shipping announced that it’s proposing to the United Nations that all vessels trading globally above a certain size should pay a set amount per metric ton of carbon dioxide they emit.

The shipping industry is estimated to account for nearly 3% of the greenhouse gas emissions that are driving global warming and projected to rise significantly. Some analysts expect that shipping will account for 17% of emissions by 2050, according to S&P Global

Despite the scale of its emissions and its critical role in the global economy, the industry was one of the few left out of the Paris agreement. Upward of 80% of global trade is carried via sea routes, according to Reuters.

Environmental groups welcomed the proposal to the the International Maritime Organization, a U.N. body, but cautioned that it doesn’t specify what carbon price would be supported by the group, which represents commercial shipowners and operators covering over 80% of the world merchant fleet.

“We will know they are serious about real progress when they embrace a level of ambition consistent with what climate vulnerable island nations have already proposed,” said Aoife O’Leary, director of global transportation at the Environmental Defense Fund.

U.N. climate report issues dire warning


The Marshall Islands and the Solomon Islands, two nations with large shipping fleets whose territories are severely threatened by climate change, have suggested a carbon levy starting at $100 per ton. 

“This proposal sets out how to practically create a market-based measure for the global shipping industry, in order to quickly move towards an effective price,” said Guy Platten, secretary-general of the International Chamber of Shipping. “Rather than make guesses for PR purposes, we want to come to a number that will decarbonize the sector without disenfranchising huge proportions of the developing world on the way.”

The group said it opposed piecemeal regional measures, such as those proposed by the European Union, and called for the money generated from the levy to go into a climate fund that would subsidize clean alternatives such as hydrogen until they become competitive with conventional fuels.

But some shippers have announced their own decarbonization plans. AP Moller – Maersk, one of the world’s largest shipping companies, has said it plans to have a carbon-neutral fleet by 2050. The company has vowed to launch its first carbon-neutral vessel by 2023.
