Blockchain in bridging trade finance with climate commitment of the shipping industry

Global shipping is one of the most challenging sectors to decarbonise. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set out an ambitious goal to reduce the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50% from 2008 levels by 2050, a target that will require the swift development of zero or low-emission fuels, new ship designs using cleaner technology, and climate-proof operations such as carbon efficiency optimisation initiatives.
