Green Shipping: Pioneering Sustainability In Global Maritime Transport


This session will explore the challenges and opportunities of developing green shipping corridors around the world as a key imperative in the fight against climate change. Whilst a number of promising green fuels present significant opportunities, a clear leader is yet to emerge. Shipbuilders, shipping lines, ports, green fuel providers and customers all need to collaborate to accelerate progress. With the expansion of green shipping poised to accelerate around the world, we explore the potential of this market, and its importance to the UK economy.
