The shipping industry has ambitious environmental goals but the challenges in achieving them are great and it is important for all marine industry stakeholders to move forward in unison.

Over the years a key platform towards achieving this has been the annual Greener Shipping Summit.

Under the all-embracing title: 'Moving fast on the road to 2050', the Greener Shipping Summit 2021 will present and discuss developments at the IMO regarding NOx, SOx, CO2 and PM emissions. The Summit will also look further down the road to decarbonisation, speed limits, emission caps, emission trading systems and alternative fuels and methods of propulsion. 

Among environmental regulations to be discussed are:

Zero Emissions agenda
