Emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from global shipping are on the rise again, according to a new study released by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT). Accordingly, CO 2 emissions from global shipping (oceangoing vessels, domestic ships, and fishing vessels) increased from 910 to 932 million tonnes over the same period. Container ships (23%), bulk carriers (19%) and oil tankers (13%) accounted for more than half of CO 2 emissions.
