The maritime industry has a long way to go to be competitive in a world where sustainability is the norm, and zero-emissions transportation is no longer just a buzz-word. Today, shipping is without dispute the most energy-efficient means of transportation. But other modes of transportation such as road, rail and even air are decarbonizing at breakneck speed, and we need to keep pace to make shipping future-proof.
Future Proof Shipping (FPS) is here to facilitate and lead by example. The shipping industry has immense potential for reducing its ecological footprint. The technology to build zero-emissions ships exists today and sustainable propulsion technologies are rapidly becoming an attractive alternative to fossil fuel propelled engines.
