WWF Arctic Council Scorecard

Shipping

Arctic shipping – both destinational and transit – has increased significantly during the past decade. This trend is projected to continue due to increased demand for resources and shortened routes as Arctic shipping lanes become free of ice for longer periods. Both factors increase the risk of major environmental impacts.
