If shipping wants to decarbonise, it should get out there and start now — plenty can be done today to reduce vessel emissions without resorting to ordering new ships.

That is the message from Norden chief executive Jan Rindbo, who wants to cut the hot air surrounding the topic of decarbonisation.

“A lot of times we tend to focus on what is the future fuel and how are we going to go to zero emissions by 2050 and sometimes in that conversation we forget everything that we can do now, ” he told TradeWinds.
