Greening Tomorrow, Today:
Partnerships for Zero Carbon Shipping
International shipping accounts for 2-3%. of global GHG emissions – a number that will only increase in line with expected growth in global trade if no actions are taken. Shipping is a hard-to-abate sector and the solution involves the entire maritime value chain from fuel production via ports to the ships. Therefore, it requires international collaboration amongst states, companies and non-state actors as well as across the value chain to reach the international climate goals set in the Paris Agreement and in the International Maritime Organisation’s initial GHG strategy.
The overall challenge is to make different parts of the value chain across sectors commit, cooperate and deliver at the same time to prove that emission-free shipping has the potential to be a practicable and viable choice. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure the right framework for innovation across the entire value chain to support the development of new energy systems and technologies for decarbonising shipping. Furthermore, international collaboration across the maritime value chain is key to ensure the development of zero-emission shipping, and zero-emission shipping is a must-win battle in our collective effort to overcome climate change.
On 22 April 2021, we invite leading maritime players to pinpoint their views as Singapore and Denmark seek to unfold potentials for increased international public-private collaboration towards emission-free shipping.
The event is presented by SGInnovate, the Royal Danish Embassy in Singapore, and the Danish Maritime Authority.
