This is the final blog in the Sail Cargo and SDGs series! This blog will look at how sail cargo meets Goal 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions and Goal 17 Partnership for the Goals.
In this series, the sail cargo industry is looked at through the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals. This week: Goal 11 – Sustainable Cities and Goal 15 – Communities & Life on Land.
Goals 7 and 9 look at affordable and clean energy, and innovation and infrastructure respectively. While using sailing vessels to ship cargo may seem “old-fashioned”, this technology actually has huge potential to tap into renewable energies.
If you want to play a part in the promising story of the sail cargo industry don’t be afraid to start… The sail cargo world is an extremely welcoming place.
According to the International Maritime Organisation, shipping is responsible for emitting more than 1.000 million tonnes of CO2 annually
