The International Maritime Organization (IMO) target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by “at least 50% by 2050 compared to 2008” aligns the shipping sector with the Paris Agreement temperature goals. Strong actions are needed. The IMO strategy relies on technological innovation and alternative energy sources for global shipping, and support of governments and shipping customers

I stand corrected. Last year I described the Direct Action replacement of the previous government’s carbon pricing mechanism as offering transport companies nothing, yet in the first Emission Reduction Fund (ERF) auction in April, transport group AHG was awarded a $2 million contract to reduce its emissions. For the $1.89 billion (75%) of ERF funding
