Our Mission

Say No To LNG is a global shipping campaign aimed at debunking the myth that LNG is a “climate friendly” marine fuel alternative and exposing the true nature of LNG as the fossil fuel.

Our Collective: Spanning the world from Asia to Europe to North America to the Arctic, we are a collective of environmental experts and advocates who collaborate to push back on the adoption of LNG and educate key actors on its role in worsening global warming.

Our Collaborators: We directly support research activities that facilitate evidence-based decision-making in the shipping sector. Our campaign is informed by scientists, research institutions, technical advisors, and community leaders. We also collaborate with knowledge holders that are independent of this campaign, but working towards the same goals.

Our Goal: While we believe that there are many solutions and sustainable pathways, we have one goal: to urge policymakers, industry stakeholders, and financial institutions to urgently rule LNG out of any shipping decarbonization scenario.

Our Funding: We are supported by ClimateWorks Foundation, a global platform for philanthropy to innovate and accelerate climate solutions that scale. Our campaign is growing its partnerships with other regional and global funders to continue building a collective movement towards fossil fuel-free shipping.
