Sea20 network invites you to two important online events on decarbonising the maritime industry

Håkan Agnevall, President & CEO of Wärtsilä Corporation

SEP 7TH & 14TH – Håkan Agnevall, President & CEO of Wärtsilä Corporation, and Jeremy Bentham, Vice President Global Business Environment at Shell, are among the business and political luminaries joining the online discussion focusing on the latest developments in decarbonising the maritime industry.

The shipping industry contributes up to 3% of the global emissions of greenhouse gases. During this past summer, both the European Union and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) have come out with new targets and mechanisms aimed at cutting the industry’s emissions levels. In the case of the EU, marine transport is to be included in the Union’s carbon cap and trade system for the first time. 

Jeremy Bentham, Vice President Global Business Environment at Shell

Join the international SEA20 network’s two online events where the impact, reach and challenges of the latest regulations on decarbonising the maritime industry will be discussed. The topics will also include how different players within the maritime ecosystem should respond to the new demands and the industry’s uncertain future, while maintaining profitability.

1. ONLINE EVENT – September 7th, 2021 at 3 pm CET

SEA20 Panel discussion: Regulations accelerating decarbonisation

In the light of the IPCC report, it has become even more evident that shipping needs ambitious regulations if decarbonisation is to be achieved. However, the recent decision from the IMO’s Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) has been described as “another greenwashing cosmetic measure for shipping” by critics. On a regional level, the EU is leading the charge with its ambitious “Fit for 55” proposal. How will these and other regulatory actions affect maritime in the long- and short term? Is the technology ready to comply with regulations? How should industry stakeholders and ecosystem actors respond to this push for action? Listen and ask this panel of industry heavyweights questions in real-time:
