ICCT study finds GHGs from shipping on the rise
Green Car Congress
OCTOBER 20, 2017
The new ICCT study combines global ship operations (AIS) data with detailed vessel characteristics for more than half a million ships to estimate GHG emissions and air pollution from shipping at high resolution (1° x 1°) on an hourly basis for the years 2013 to 2015. Ships registered to Panama (15%), China (11%), Liberia (9%), Marshall Islands (7%), Singapore (6%), and Malta (5%) were the largest emitters. International shipping was not included in the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
