Emissions, green shipping, manpower – the debate at the International Chamber of Shipping’s (ICS) conference last month was fast paced and at times controversial. With a capacity crowd, and a full LISW schedule there were some who were disappointed when they found this annual highlight clashing with other commitments.
Those who couldn’t make the event can experience what they missed, as ICS has published a video of the Conference, so that today the shipping community can share in the debate first hand.
For many years members and supporters have requested that ICS record the Conference, and this LISW year, with such a strong line up of participants, provided the ideal opportunity.
During the Conference ICS had many positive comments from visitors to the event, who enjoyed watching the high quality moderators challenge the expert panel members. Shipowners and NGOs grappled with the practical steps needed to reduce carbon emissions, panel members pondered whether zero emission vessels were in the realm of fantasy, and there was much debate over the role of crewless ships in our future.
This is all delivered online through four videos, produced in conjunction with KVH Videotel. Each covers one of the four panel sessions:
• CO2 Reduction: Developing the IMO Road Map
• New Environmental Regulation: Costs of Compliance
• Maintaining Free Trade: Dusk or New Dawn?
• Decent Work for Seafarers: Are We Delivering
