Heard in the conference theatre at Breakbulk Asia 2019
Breakbulk Magazine reports the shipping industry must do more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to help avoid global economic catastrophe, said Saliya Wickramasuriya, senior advisor to the CEO, Hambantota International Port Group Private Limited, Sri Lanka, at Breakbulk Asia Wednesday.
Welcoming new IMO 2020 low-sulfur fuel rules, which he said would also drive investment in new liquefied natural gas capacity, he acknowledged shipping as a major emitter of greenhouse gases.
“If we were a country, shipping would be the sixth-largest emitter,” he said. “This means we have a collective responsibility to reduce it.”
