10:00 AM 11:00 AM

Defining the regulatory landscape for a sustainable maritime future

Strategic panel

Session Location: Conference Hall A

Efforts to reduce maritime emissions are making progress, with the EU Emissions Trading Scheme set to include shipping from 2024 onwards, and the FuelEU Maritime Regulation accelerating alternative fuel deployment from 2025. Meanwhile, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), has mandated ships to report on their energy efficiency and carbon intensity. With significant limitations and variables affecting reporting, regulatory frameworks will need to be globally aligned to avoid a fragmented, multi-tiered policy landscape if the maritime sector is to achieve net-zero carbon by 2050.

Attendee insights:

Learn about the latest developments on forward-thinking policy frameworks that enable decarbonisation of the maritime industry, and the next phase of regulations required to make sustainable shipping a reality.

Navigating the future of offshore logistics

Leadership perspectives

Session Location: Conference Hall A

As governments and businesses seek to diversify their energy portfolios, global demand for offshore logistics and construction - previously driven in large by the oil and gas industry - is increasingly shifting towards renewable energy infrastructure. The development of the global offshore wind, solar and hydrogen sectors will bring challenges and opportunities to redefine value chains. Shared logistics and new business models to facilitate this transition will need to rely on digitally advanced technologies and collaborative ecosystems, enabling transparent data sharing and new cross-sector partnerships.

Attendee insights:

Understand the future pathways for offshore logistics and the evolution of new collaborative shared logistics models, supported by digital enablers.

A new wave for zero-carbon shipping: developing green corridors

Strategic panel

Session Location: Conference Hall A

Zero-emission trade routes offer opportunities to establish partnerships between ship operators, fuel suppliers, ports and the entire maritime value chain to jointly achieve carbon neutrality goals. As a catalyst for decarbonisation in shipping, green corridors are paving the way towards increased collaboration in a sustainable, multi-stakeholder environment. However, most green corridors are still in the early stages of developments. For sustainable trade routes to become mainstream, proactive input and decisive planning from all stakeholders will be critical.

Attendee insights:

Hear about the most recent advances in green corridor development and the potential collaboration opportunities in accelerating sustainable trade.

Pursuing certainty in scalable zero-emission marine fuels

Strategic panel

Session Location: Conference Hall A

The future of zero-carbon shipping is challenging, with commercially viable low carbon fuels unavailable at scale. LNG will play a key role in transitioning the sector, while increased electrification and onboard carbon capture may also contribute to zero-carbon shipping advances. Regulatory policies and cross-stakeholder collaboration are pivotal in de-risking investments in the production, transportation and use of low carbon fuels such as methanol and ammonia, putting pressure on the industry to demonstrate tangible action toward clean marine fuel technology.

Attendee insights:

Gain insights into the progress of transitioning traditional marine fuels and the challenges to scaling up alternative fuel options with commercial viability to decarbonise shipping.

Delivering net-zero: securing shipping finance

Leadership Interview

Session Location: Conference Hall A

Transitioning the maritime industry to net-zero operations requires reliable, long-term investment. While efficiency gains and operational upgrades will secure short-term emissions reduction, net-zero in shipping can only happen through diversification of marine fuels. Regulatory frameworks around alternative fuels remain unclear, presenting financiers and investors with challenges when considering zero-carbon maritime solutions as viable investment opportunities. Public and private sectors will need to collaborate if ambitions for 2050 climate targets are to be met.

Attendee insights:

Gain insights into the factors affecting the future of shipping finance and the investment trends shaping the global maritime industry.
