Invitation to the LSLC/BIMCO Webinar – Decarbonisation & Shipping – 21st April 2021
In Association with
Decarbonisation & Shipping
Climate change is a problem affecting everyone, and almost everything. If this common challenge is to be effectively addressed, significant and rapid change is required across all sectors globally. The shipping industry, which produces over a billion tonnes of CO2 emissions annually, is no exception.
Yet how does an industry heavily reliant on fossil fuel transition to being cleaner and greener? Will the change be driven by regulators, stakeholders, or all concerned? Where do the challenges and opportunities lay, and how may relationships need to be adjusted to accommodate change?
In this seminar we explore the shipping industry’s response to climate change, navigating the fast developing landscape of regulation and action and hearing perspectives from regulators, owners and charterers.
Specific Issues to be discussed:
· Setting the scene – global warming, decarbonisation and shipping;
· Global decarbonisation regulations – current and forthcoming;
· The shipowners’ perspective;
· The charterers’ perspective; and
· Inter-party issues thrown up by decarbonisation.
