Our background

Without the shipping industry there would be no global economy.

This largely invisible industry is responsible for transporting about 90% of globally traded goods.

Ocean shipping is essential to global trade and trade volumes will naturally only increase as the population and consumer demand grows. But while shipping remains the most cost-efficient and environmentally-friendly form of transport for freight, environmental regulations quite rightly demand a different, lower emission future – one that requires different propulsion systems.

We are recognised as a voice for the industry, providing credible, fact-based analysis to aid decision-making by the shipping industry, investors and regulators.

Founded in 2016, with numerous high-profile members including shipping companies, ports, LNG suppliers, bunkering companies, infrastructure providers and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), classification societies, banks and brokers, SEA-LNG is a multi-sector industry coalition whose members work together to demonstrate the benefits of LNG as a marine fuel throughout the entire value chain.

We do this by commissioning and communicating independent research on topics including the emissions, investment and infrastructure cases for LNG.
