IMO, DG MOVE, Maersk, BIMCO and others to participate in GHG emissions seminar in Copenhagen

Copenhagen, Denmark will host GHG Emissions in Shipping seminar on 26-27 November. “With the recent MEPC 73 gathering in London and its importance for GHG emissions reduction, we want to make sure that the discussion doesn’t stop there”, says Actia Forum, the Event organizer.

The seminar is aimed at assessing the situation following IMO’s decision to cut GHG emissions from shipping by 50% until the year 2050.

Representatives from IMO and the European Commission will deliver the opening keynote speeches and share their points of view.

DFDS and Maersk both responded to the call and together with a representative of the World Maritime University they will tackle their approach to achieving the emission goals, environmental benefits and challenges surrounding the deployment of larger vessels and the new policy framework of environmental performance management for the shipping industry.

BIMCO will explore the role of ports as key players in lowering shipping’s carbon emissions. Their presentation will be followed up upon by the Copenhagen Malmö Port in their analysis of the ports’ approach to carbon footprinting.

Rounding up the presentation package, representatives from the European Shippers’s Council and the European Investment Bank are going to cover to other, equally important topics – customers’ point of view and financing opportunities.
