The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) together with the UK Science & Innovation Network (SIN) Southeast Asia are seeking opinions to investigate ‘Green Ship Technologies’ within Asia, with a roundtable to be chaired by Richard Vie, President of the IMarEST.
Despite ships being by far the most efficient form of transport, there is growing concern about climate change, the environmental state of the world’s oceans and the air quality close to major shipping routes and ports which has led to ever more stringent legislation on emissions to both sea and air.
Richard Vie, President of the IMarEST commented: “The roundtable will provide the perfect opportunity to discuss what key players within the industry think about Green Ship Technologies and green initiatives. It will provide a forum to share best industry practice and discuss whether there are further opportunities for the sector to turn these into profitable solutions.”
The IMarEST and SIN Southeast Asia are inviting the industry to complete a short survey aimed at gauging views on the “Green Agenda” from across the maritime sector. It can be accessed via:http://surveys.imarest.org/
The invitation-only roundtable discussion will be held in Singapore on 10th March 2015 to debate the survey results. The roundtable will be followed by an open workshop to provide the opportunity for further discussion and to involve a wider attendance.
A report of the findings from the roundtable will be published after the event.
