Does the shipping industry need another organisation working on its decarbonisation?

After all, efforts are already widespread and possibly duplicated across the International Maritime Organization, the European Union and national and industry bodies?

Mission Innovation, a public sector initiative launched at COP21 in 2015 to accelerate the pace of developing affordable clean energy by working with the private sector, decided such an organisation is needed.

It launched the Zero Emission Shipping Mission, involving 24 governments and the European Commission, at a conference in Chile earlier this month.
