Conference Synopsis

International shipping must move to net-zero emissions to meet the 1.5 degrees Celsius ambitions of the Paris Agreement, which requires a 100% renewable energy mix mid-century. The piloting of route-based solutions between ports is an appropriate way to turn ambition into action.


The needed technology is well-known and rapidly improving but there is uncertainty regarding the development of appropriate incentives, business models, and forms of governance, which is the focus of this Thought Leadership conference.
