Accelerating the Decarbonisation of Shipping

Day 1 - 5th Oct | 16:20 - 16:50

Location: Sustainable Partnership Theatre

Decarbonisation

Overview

With the IMO’s goal to reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050 and carbon intensity by 40% by 2030, decarbonization has become the buzzword in shipping today. What actions should the different shipping organizations be taking to prepare for these new regulations?

Learnings

  • The roadmap for decarbonisation requires the collaboration of the whole shipping ecosystem. How can we achieve coordinated industry engagement?
  • How to motivate stakeholders and create behavioural changes, discuss the impact of market and customer demand, regulatory incentives and technological alignment
  • Conflicting views on fuel usage and future technology ship designs impact fleet development and hinder strategic decisions. What role do global regulators play in pushing technologies forward?

Post Event Actions

  • Assess whether your organisation has a roadmap to 2030 including key short, medium and long term goals
  • Engage with key customers and stakeholders that share similar commitments to achieving these goals. Build on pilot schemes and sharing of data.
  • Organisations that show leadership in the early phases of the transition will be reap the early benefits of such actions. Coordinated tracking of this progress increases visibility and transparency.
