Speaker information

Dr Tristan Smith, UCL Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources

International shipping is the system that enables globalisation. The way it quietly and efficiently executes its role has led to its labelling as 'the handmaiden of world trade'. But this enabler of export-led economic growth is also heavily dependent on fossil fuels, which have significant and growing environmental impacts.
