Dirty fossil-fuelled ships cost lives
To save money and boost profits, ships burn a cheap, toxic, sludge-like fossil fuel called “Heavy Fuel Oil”.
The resulting air pollution means that last year alone the sector was linked to 14 MILLION cases of childhood asthma globally, and 400,000 deaths from heart and lung diseases. (journal: Nature Communications, Feb 2018)
Enough is enough. It’s time for all big companies that rely on global supply chains to SORT YOUR SHIP OUT
TAKE ACTION with us
Walmart, Apple and Nike:
SORT YOUR SHIP OUT
Big brands like Walmart, Apple and Nike are amongst the largest container freight importers. Currently they use their huge buying power to drive down prices, and standards, keeping shipping locked in a cheap and dirty business model that’s destroying our climate and acidifying our oceans. This is madness. We demand that all three companies SORT YOUR SHIP OUT – and progressively shift ALL their freight away from fossil-fuelled shipping, onto the zero-carbon shipping alternatives.
We demand that all big companies TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for their global supply chain, and switch their freight buying from fossil-fuelled to clean ocean transport, to protect our climate
