Tackling the barriers to transition may be the single most important issue facing the shipping industry on its path to decarbonisation

To succeed, new commercial solutions and shared responsibilities between charterers and shipowners will be required. So will collaborative efforts and responsibilities by stakeholders from shipowners, shippers and charterers to energy suppliers, shipyards, and engine makers. 

Hosted by Mr. Nikolaus H. Schües, BIMCO President Designate, join BIMCO and a panel of maritime specialists and leaders who will share their expertise, ambition and strategies for decarbonising shipping. 

Panellists will also consider whether the industry is taking adequate steps to meet the IMO’s goals and the wider global decarbonisation challenge.
