15 banking signatories last month disclosed their ship loan portfolios’ climate alignment scores for 2019 following signing of the Poseidon Principles in the inaugural Poseidon Principles Climate Alignment Report. 17 leading ship charterers also signed the Poseidon-inspired Sea Cargo Charter to assess and disclose climate alignment while the Climate Bonds Initiative defined the Shipping Criteria of the International Climate Bonds Standard (CBS).
 
The importance of financial institutions in leading sector-wide decarbonization is highlighted through the actions now beginning to be taken by the industry.
 
Under this inaugural report, the average reported alignment score is +1.2%, which indicates the 2019 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with signatories’ shipping portfolios are on average 1.2 percent above the decarbonization trajectory expected by the IMO. Individual scores ranged from -45% percent to >+32%, but it should be noted, the decarbonization trajectory expected by the IMO is grossly insufficient in meeting the 1.5 degree trajectory demanded by the Shipping High Ambition Coalition.

While Pacific Island Countries are continually seeking finance to meet the basic needs of their residents through domestic shipping services, a superyacht called the 'Pagurus' inspired by a crab has been developed as a solar-powered amphibious catamaran. Featuring a propulsion system including special rotating cylinders that lower to enable it to travel on land, the 'Crabmaran' is able to move on sand or mud at up to 30 kmph. Designed by Italy’s Lazzarini, a two-year build time is expected at €24M.

Availability of raw materials to facilitate repairs to Fiji's road network illustrate a significant limiting factor to continued maintenance and development of land transport infrastructure around the region.

Fiji Roads Authority has stated the best solution is to tear off and rehabilitate parts of the damaged roads, but in the interim they will continue to repair potholes, having spent FJ$3.5m on pothole repairs along 36 kilometers of road around Suva before Christmas, 2020.

15 signatories of the Poseidon Principles have released a disclosure report assessing the climate alignment score of their ship finance portfolios. For 2020, the report shows ING, Export Credit Norway, and BPIFrance Assurance Export’s ship finance portfolios are aligned with UN decarbonisation targets, while 12 banks’ portfolios fall short.

Joining the charterers formation of the Sea Cargo Charter, the banking industry’s intended transparency through the Poseidon Principles became the first sector-specific climate alignment agreement for financial institutions.

To assess the climate alignment of a single vessel via the Poseidon Principles, the vessel’s annual carbon intensity is compared with the decarbonisation trajectory for its respective ship type and size.

A total of 20 financial institutions have joined, representing over $150bn in loans to international shipping – more than a third of the global shipping finance portfolio.
