Decarbonizing the maritime sector is crucial to keeping planetary warming to well below 1.5°C, in line with the Paris Agreement. However, we need to move beyond the carbon tunnel-vision to other sustainability elements – from the labour and human rights of the workers producing alternative fuels to the impacts of new port infrastructure on local communities, ecosystems, and livelihoods. Doing so will build the foundation for a resilient, futureproof maritime industry as we look to 2050.
