Clean maritime plan: Maritime 2050 environment route map

The government’s route map for the transition to a future of zero emission shipping.



The clean maritime plan is the environment route map of Maritime 2050, and will also act as the UK’s national action plan on shipping emissions.

The plan reflects the need to respond to the challenges of climate change and air pollution’s threat to public health, and identifies the clean growth opportunities associated with a transition to zero emission shipping.

It sets out a number of domestic policies to reduce greenhouse gases and pollutant emissions from shipping, and to stimulate clean maritime growth.

The plan delivers on government’s commitments under the Clean air strategy and international climate obligations.

A package of economic and technical research which informed the plan is published alongside the plan itself.
