About the book

New ships operating today must work in a zero-emission world. Smart Green Shipping explores how professionals in the shipping industry can address the world's greatest challenge, climate change, through collaboration and embracing a new 'racing mindset'. It also includes key case studies of organizations to inspire successful problem solving and innovation, because in a climate emergency the biggest risk is taking no action.

Beginning by looking at the current state of shipping and international shipping emissions, the book goes on to examine examples of industry initiatives using new technologies, such as working with the European Space Agency on meteorological data. With information on circular shipbuilding, wind power and alternative fuels, this timely work explains how developing viable systems for the future demands effort across the entire system to design and build new technologies, enablers, organizations and infrastructures.

Over 90% of all goods are moved by sea, meaning international shipping emissions have a huge impact on the environment. However, with the international Maritime Organization's commitment to reach zero greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible, the shipping industry needs to change. Smart Green Shipping will provide valuable answers and solutions to help shipping practitioners address this urgent priority in the industry.
