The shipping industry accounts for around 3% of the world's total carbon emissions. This figure will grow to 15% by 2050 if alternative fuels and clean technologies are not adopted today. Some say the world is sea blind and that the polluting transport industry is a blind spot for climate policies and decision-makers. At GoodFuels, we are changing this mindset.
