While some worry that the coronavirus outbreak could end up postponing key milestones in shipping's climate work, nothing has changed at the world's biggest container shipping line, Maersk, the company's head of regulatory affairs, Simon Bergulf, tells ShippingWatch.

"Our ambitions and efforts in terms of the climate remain the same. The covid-19 outbreak has not changed that. Maersk must still launch a CO2-neutral ship before 2030, and we're still working towards that," he says in a written comment.
