The EU’s opportunity to lead the way towards zero carbon shipping.
We work for zero carbon shipping globally. Through the Green Deal, the EU has a unique opportunity to strengthen, motivate and complement global policy for reducing carbon emissions in international shipping.
The EU ETS will contribute to global decarbonisation.
The EU can lead global climate action, but it can’t succeed alone. The EU ETS can reduce regional shipping greenhouse gas emissions help drive robust global GHG regulations.
FuelEU must be designed to also ensure fuel supply.
WSC strongly supports the EC’s proposed ‘well-to-wake’ lifecycle approach for greenhouse gas intensity, as a comprehensive, globally accepted scientific approach. It is, however, crucial that fuel use obligations are matched by measures to ensure fuel supply.
Join our Alternative Power Breakfasts.
A space for conversations beyond position statements for maritime actors, technology providers, fuel innovators, organisations and regulators to work together to decarbonise shipping.
Join us in Brussels for the
European Shipping Summit
19-20 September at The Royal Museums of Fine Arts
As one of the organisers of the ESS, WSC is the proud host of two sessions on 19 September.

Our news and statements on EU GreenDeal topics
Transitioning global shipping from a carbon dependent industry into one that operates without greenhouse gas emissions will be a complex multi-technology, cross-industry development process. To make sure the transition can be made fast enough and to minimise the cost to society, a range of mutually reinforcing regulations will be needed. Here, the EU - through its own regulations and its role at the IMO - can have a great influence.
The WSC Alternative Power Breakfasts are a space for conversations beyond position statements for maritime actors, technology providers, fuel innovators, organisations and regulators to work together to decarbonise shipping. Are you a master of maritime matters, part of the fuel flow, powering a port, or grooming the Green Deal? We want to hear from you!
Watch this pace for news about the next Alternative Power Breakfast!
Bring your best ideas and an open mind to join the conversation at Rond-Point Robert Schuman 9 in Brussels. Breakfast is served.
The first Alternative Power Breakfast was held on 22 September, 2022
