Decarbonisation of the Maritime Industry

Supporting you in your journey towards a decarbonised shipping industry

The decarbonisation of the shipping industry is a non-negotiable and the moment is now. Our team of experts advise clients on compliance with current and expected regulatory obligations through charter contracts, financing arrangements, shipbuilding contracts and other broader issues relating to the green transition of the maritime industry.

Decarbonisation is a high-profile global issue with every sector impacted by the process and push towards achieving net zero emissions by 2050. The global endeavour to combat climate change has intensified the focus on decarbonising industries across the spectrum, and the maritime sector in particular is no exception.

In recent years, the urgency to address the environmental impact of shipping has spurred a monumental shift on the road towards the green transition of the shipping industry. With decarbonisation efforts and strategies at the forefront of the world’s leading shipowners, operators, manufacturers, suppliers and traders, our team provide essential support in the journey to create a net-zero future for the shipping industry.

We provide legal expertise, guidance and support across a broad range of decarbonisation matters, including:

  • Compliance and Regulatory (including IMO and EU measures)
  • Emissions Reduction Target Strategies
  • Contracts, including charterparties (with CII/EEXI provisions and EU ETS clauses)
  • Liability and Risk Management
  • Asset Finance
  • Employment Law
  • Dispute Resolution

Every player involved in the shipping chain, including shipping companies need to be aware of the ever-changing landscape of carbon emission regulations, as well as the alternative energy options available to them. This is why we provide key value-added services to clients, ensuring they are well-informed of these developments. Whether it is through our unrivalled ‘Decarbonisation in Shipping’ podcast, where we discuss IMO targets, financing and the EU ETS; or via regularly hosted training sessions and seminars, we understand the importance of working with clients to plan and help create a decarbonised world.

It's a very responsive team with strong partner involvement and attention, as well as knowledgeable and attentive associates.
