Bunkers emission projection

Consultants AEA Technology have calculated that emissions from shipping and aviation could account for 92% of global emissions by 2050 if total emissions are cut by 80% and shipping and aviation follow a business as usual growth path. The findings are contained in a report that was presented at an EU side event this morning. These industries have done nothing to reduce their emissions since Kyoto. This clearly has to change and the report shows how important real reductions within the industry will be.
