Zero-emissions shipping

Meet the crew

Stand.earth and Pacific Environment are the founding members of Ship It Zero, a coalition of environmental and public health advocates, scientists, shipping experts, and shoppers, urging some of the largest companies in the world to ship products on zero-emissions ships by 2030. Join us to push Amazon, IKEA, Target, and Walmart to take immediate action to abandon dirty fossil-fueled ships, and lead the way to a healthier, climate-friendly business.

Just how bad is the shipping industry for our climate? Well, ships transport 90% of global trade and account for approximately 3% of global climate pollution. That may not sound like much, but from a climate standpoint, it's a staggering amount. If the shipping industry were a country, it would be ranked between Germany and Japan as the sixth-largest contributor to CO2 emissions. Join us as we clean up this little known sector of our global economy.

Retail giants have outsourced the manufacturing of consumer products for decades. This has driven significant growth in fossil-fueled maritime shipping. Backed by Big Oil, fossil-fueled maritime shipping is so cheap that it helps justify corporations’ production of goods overseas. The world’s shipping fleet has quadrupled in size since the 1980s to keep up with demand.

These major polluting companies are hiding from the public the true amount of pollution they produce from shady, fossil-fueled ships.
