Next Generation Global Shipping

The transport sector is responsible for a significant portion of global carbon emissions, and the shipping industry is no exception. Decarbonizing shipping will be essential not only to reduce carbon emissions from the sector but also to reduce carbon intensity of global supply chains, a key imperative for businesses going forward.

The discussion will bring together industry leaders, policymakers, and investors to discuss pathways to shift the shifting shipping sector towards a green future. Held in collaboration between ORF and State of Green, the event will delve into the needed market driver and opportunities associated with the development of infrastructure for green fuels, the regulatory landscape, and the potential for public-private partnerships between global energy leaders.

Panel Discussion

Charting the Course for Future-Ready Global Green Shipping The green transition will have a strong impact on the shipping sector. As businesses and consumers demand greener supply chains, the onus will fall on the shipping industry to provide alternate clean energy solutions. However, while various green fuels are available deploying these at a mass scale will require strong and collaborative actions across a range of stakeholder.

What fuels and technologies hold the most promise for greening the shipping sector?

How can stakeholders across the shipping industry scale up the adoption of green technologies?

What is the role of green shipping corridors and how can countries collaborate to establish such corridors?
