Say No to LNG Campaign: A Global Solutions Framework

Recognizing there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution for shipping decarbonization, the Say No to LNG campaign adopts a solutions framework focused on a just and equitable transition.

Updated 01/1/2024

Say No To LNG is a global shipping campaign urging policymakers, industry stakeholders, and financial institutions to rule out Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in any shipping decarbonization plan. The campaign’s goals and solutions are based on short-, mid-, and long-term pathways.

Short-Term Pathway

  • Immediate implementation of operational and technical efficiency measures
  • Early deployment of zero-emissions fuel and technology
  • Stopping public funding of fossil fuel infrastructure
  • Low-investment measures like hull/propeller cleaning and weather routing offer up to 15% fuel savings

Mid-Term Pathway

  • Mass deployment of zero-emissions fuel and technology
  • Continued operational efficiency improvements (even when zero-emissions fuels become available, green electricity supply may be limited)

Long-Term Pathway

  • Ban greenhouse gas-emitting fuels
  • Reduce vessel size and trade, where necessary
  • Meet shipping decarbonization goals
  • Achieve full commercial viability of the zero-emissions shipping value chain
A Global Solutions Framework

This framework delineates the four primary stakeholder groups the Say No to LNG Global Campaign is working with, its guiding principles, and the pathways forward . Urgency surrounds the imperative to reject LNG as a marine shipping fuel, especially given the increasing global prevalence of LNG vessels. Say No to LNG is advocating for four overarching considerations essential for any “solution” aimed at advancing shipping decarbonization (see circle graphic below).

“Say No To LNG [is bringing] public awareness to the detrimental community and climate impacts of LNG in regions across the globe. We are fostering collaboration with policymakers, financial institutions, the shipping industry, knowledge holders, scientists, NGOs and grassroots organizers to build opposition to LNG expansion and new projects, and collectively move towards zero-emissions solutions.”
