Climate change presents the single biggest threat to sustainable development in the marine and infrastructure industries and there is a need for action.
With increasing stakeholder expectations and regulations – such as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Greenhouse Gas Strategy 2050 – the maritime
industry finds itself at a pivotal point in the debate around sustainability. As the conversation continues to grow in both volume and reach, so do initiatives, such
as the World Ports Sustainability Program, the Environmental Ship Index, and the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The events of 2020 have heightened the focus on the environment across the maritime sector. New research, conducted by Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation, reveals where sustainability sits on the maritime sector’s priority list, the key business drivers for sustainability and which actions are having the most immediate impact.
