The maritime industry is a fundamental enabler of global trade and efficient supply chains - it supports 90% of goods transportation and is an invaluable operational pillar for the energy sector.
Heavily reliant on traditional fuels, advances in shipping decarbonisation point the way to diversifying the energy mix in heavy industries worldwide. However, curbing carbon emissions in the maritime sector requires decisive action from all stakeholders across the value chain, supported by progressive policy frameworks to scale up zero emission technology and infrastructure, define future marine fuel pathways and level the playing field for the industry.
As a new generation of maritime professionals enter the workforce and more sustainable shipping business models are developed, new opportunities for collaboration are emerging, enabled by digital advances that strengthen logistics and supply chains through increased automation and technologies.

The Maritime and Logistics Conference will bring together industry leaders, regulators and decision-makers from across the shipping and logistics supply chain to engage in inclusive dialogue around decarbonisation and digital innovation and explore cross-sector solutions that will accelerate the energy transition and enable the industry to meet its net-zero targets.
The ADIPEC 2023 Maritime and Logistics Conference will bring together industry leaders, regulators and decision-makers from across the shipping and logistics supply chain to engage in inclusive dialogue around decarbonisation and digital innovation and explore cross-sector solutions that will accelerate the energy transition and enable the industry to meet its net-zero targets.
Shipping accounts for 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions, putting pressure on the maritime industry to decarbonise and adopt cleaner fuels. Regulatory policies that incentivise low-carbon technology and deliver emissions accountability will be an essential driver of sustainable operations. To decarbonise shipping, progressive support from regional and national authorities is required to attract the right investment, stimulate demand, and develop the necessary infrastructure to adopt sustainable fuel solutions.
2. Developing new cross-sector partnerships for sustainable shipping
As the global energy industry transitions towards cleaner fuels and sustainable business models, opportunities for new multi-sector partnerships will be increasingly viable. Collaboration among governments, energy producers, shipowners, fleet operators, fuel bunker producers and ports will be key in creating a cleaner, more sustainable industry. In addition, infrastructure development for alternative energy carriers, such as hydrogen, will help create a platform for multi-stakeholder partnerships across heavy industries.
3. Digital innovation in offshore, maritime and logistics
Technology has a vital role in transforming the maritime industry and digital transformation will be key to resiliency amidst disruptions. Digitally advanced and data-driven operating models, that incorporate technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics and blockchain, are increasing efficiency while lowering emissions and improving end-to-end visibility of maritime value chain metrics. Leveraging intelligent technologies in shipping and logistics will result in more resilient and responsive global supply chains, ultimately strengthening trade flows worldwide.
The Maritime and Logistics Conference will bring together industry leaders in shipping and logistics to discuss decarbonisation, digital innovation and viable pathways toward sustainable shipping and resilient supply chains.
The Maritime and Logistics Conference Passes include the following:
ADIPEC 2023 will be a progressive force for energy transformation and leadership. It will unite the expanding and increasingly diverse world of energy and help us work together to transform, decarbonise and future-proof our industry, by accelerating the innovation and tangible actions needed to enable a lower-carbon and higher-growth future for the world.
