summit (30-31 March 2021)

Squaring the circle: Confronting the big questions about shipping’s decarbonisation

The decarbonisation of shipping is well underway. With the IMO’s 2030 and 2050 targets firmly in sight and countries stepping up to put domestic clean energy transition strategies in place – many of which will impact on shipping – the momentum for maritime’s energy change is building. However, while the scale of the energy transition is beginning to be realised, how shipping and its related sectors can achieve this is still far from clear cut. While some ‘solutions’ may be ready for full commercialisation, others remain in relatively early-stage development or their viability is unproven.

In the first of’s global summits, which took place on 30-31 March 2021, industry leaders, practitioners, analysts and commentators defined and debated many of the pressing and critical questions on shipping’s decarbonisation.
