AqualisBraemar LOC LISW21 Event: Panel Discussion & Reception

Event Date:
Start at 4:00 PM
September 14, 2021

The IMO committed in 2008 to reducing international shipping GHG emissions by 50% by 2050, but recent years has seen a rise in its carbon footprint since 2012 as the increase in shipping coupled with ever-growing vessels outpaces efficiency improvements.

With the emergence of new innovations and alternative fuels, AqualisBraemar LOC are hosting a panel discussion to address what the maritime emissions profile looks like today, where we are and what are the next steps.

This is an official London International Shipping Week 2021 event.
