Financial Times letter: Liner Carriers CEO's urge more government to support industry-financed R&D push

We are committed to decarbonisation and ready to do our part. The international maritime transportation system drives the world economy. World trade and the world’s economies cannot afford a chaotic decarbonisation of shipping. Nor can time be lost in effectively tackling the challenge. We therefore invite all governments to show engagement and climate leadership on the international stage, through support for the IMRB at the UN IMO. The shipping Industry is willing to take the cost and do the work, but we can only move forward with your support. Help us take action to develop the technologies to meet the climate challenge.

The industry is committed to decarbonisation, we are willing to put our money where it has the most impact, and we need political support to reach our shared goal.
