SEAaT (Shipping Emissions Abatement and Trading), the industry association dedicated to shipping emissions abatement and trading, announced that International Paint Ltd. has joined them as an associate member. International Paint is a world leader in marine coatings and has developed systems designed to reduce fuel consumption and thereby emissions from shipping. It is technologies such as these that will assist the maritime industry with reducing its environmental footprint. 

SEAaT and its members are united in calling for a reduction in emissions from shipping using technological as well as operational methods, facilitated by an emissions trading scheme.

John Willsher, Market Manager, International Paint said: “Enabling emissions reduction from shipping is a technological and regulatory challenge. The latest generation of hull coatings play a key role in meeting this challenge through proven reductions in fuel usage and carbon dioxide emissions.”
