Decarbonising the shipping industry: What’s already happening and how can we help accelerate it?

February 19 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us at this joint ECSA–ESPO event to learn about the latest developments in the reduction of shipping’s carbon footprint. Shipowners will present what they have been doing so far to reduce GHG emissions. Port representatives will likewise discuss their contributions and address the consequences of the energy transition for ports. The two panel discussions that follow will feature in-depth exchanges on these topics. Also, the crucial role played by the European Institutions will form part of the discussions.
