A dedicated masterclass to understand the new stakes of the maritime transport sector
About 80% of the world's freight is transported by sea. Despite the economic benefits of this activity, shipping produces a range of negative environmental impacts, not least of which is carbon emissions, as almost all shipping is powered by fossil fuels. These issues will be the focus of this session led by Dr Jason Monios as part of the International Trade & Logistics programme. After discussing the negative environmental impacts of the sector, the masterclass will look at a range of solutions such as alternative fuels, as well as how the maritime sector plans to adapt to the effects of climate change.
