The Lloyd's List sustainability hub provides insight, analysis and commentary to identify the immediate and long-term challenges as shipping navigates its way towards an emissions-free future.


How expensive is green methanol?

The cost of compliance and potential financial benefits from clean fuel bunkering will come to the fore with FuelEU Maritime. EU emission reduction legislation could drive green fuel prices higher, as demand will rise sharply, with shipowners looking to rake in hefty payouts from FuelEU’s pooling mechanism

Stop trying to make future fuels not happen

The debate on measures already agreed is not going to be reopened, whatever certain shipowners were telling themselves at Posidonia this week

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Is it possible to order a future-proofed ship today?

Shipping’s boardrooms are struggling with a more complex, more expensive future where there are too many ‘known unknowns’. Future-proofed flexibility is what shipowners are after as they develop their energy transition strategies, but is that really possible? This week’s edition of the podcast explores the ‘least regrets’ options on the table for shipping when it comes to newbuilding and optimisation investment decisions

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Why we need to get shipping’s carbon regulation right, now

The difficult detail of how shipping deals with carbon pricing and the ultimate impact that could have in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions hangs in the balance. The debate regarding which combination of measures gets agreed is going to be a difficult and highly political one, but this week’s edition of the podcast argues that case for keeping in mind the end goal and not getting lost in climate finance agreements that raise revenue, but fail to reduce emissions

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Has shipping’s nuclear option reached critical mass?

There is a growing body of opinion across shipping that is routinely referring to nuclear, alongside carbon capture technology, as the only real options on the table that will allow shipping to fully decarbonise by 2050. Has the previously fringe option of nuclear-powered ships become sufficiently mainstream for the industry to consider leapfrogging ammonia and hydrogen as a more pragmatic solution?

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Has shipping replaced ambition with pragmatism?

Is the outbreak of pragmatism at Posidonia this year a genuine shift towards a more realistic conversation and a long overdue resetting after the greenwashed ambitions that never really had any substance? Or are we starting to feel the environmental, social, and governance backlash playing out and pulling back on the difficult substance of what lies ahead in terms of the energy transition?

The Lloyd’s List Podcast: How green is green finance in shipping?

Green shipping finance is not currently that attractive, or green. But new banking regulations and tightening decarbonisation targets mean that capital is increasingly only going to flow in the direction of those companies prepared to make the ‘right’ decisions. This week’s edition of the podcast discusses why green targets will ultimately determine who has, and has not got access to capital
