About This Webinar

Action today – we need to reduce GHG emissions significantly before 2030!

MARE FORUM and BUREAU VERITAS will host the 3rd online round table of the series "Designing the Future of Shipping"

This theme will be discussed again in a holistic approach, in a roundtable consisting of leading experts of the maritime industry chair-holders. They will exchange their thoughts, ideas, and visions and try to give the answer to the following questions.

  • What do we need to do now to immediately start reducing emissions?
  • Is regional regulation a bad thing in the meantime?
  • Charterers will pay for GHG emissions but need a global market
  • A new wave of retrofits is coming?
  • The need for new economic relationships and multi-lateral contracts to capture common benefits
  • We need talented people for the future of shipping – where will they come from?
  • Decisions made today and in the immediate years ahead will drive ship design and the future shape of shipping
