summit 2023

The Technical University of Madrid (UPM)

Chain reaction: Is shipping on track with commercial solutions to meet the decarbonisation challenge?

The summit returned to Spain in 2023 to deliver high level debate on the rate of progress in the decarbonisation of shipping and ports.

The main focus of the summit was on fuel and technology supply chains. Speakers discussed the decarbonisation challenges presented in each ‘link’ of these chains and assessed whether sufficient progress is being made to deliver on the IMO’s 2030 and 2050 targets – when it comes to making progress on shipping’s decarbonisation, is commercial reality matching ambition?

While looking at the global narrative of shipping’s energy transition, the event also had a particular focus on developments and initiatives in Iberia and the wider Mediterranean region.
