Fuel training for a Just Transition

25 April 2024

The days of highly-polluting heavy fuel oil and diesel are numbered, and several greener alternatives are now being developed. But how and where will seafarers learn to operate vessels powered by these new fuels? In this special report, we consider how to support an environmentally sustainable shipping industry in a way that is fair and inclusive for our members. We also investigate the current state of play on developing training standards and course provision
