UK aims for zero-emission ships by 2025
By 2050, the UK shipping sector must be emission-free, and starting 2025, new ships built for UK waters should be able to sail without emitting any greenhouse gases, according to the Clean Maritime Plan from the British government, published on 11 July. The plan is also exploring the possibilities of subsidizing the transition toward a zero-emission shipping sector.
