Green Maritime Forum to put green shipping practices in the spotlight

Green Maritime Forum, a two-day event of panels, talks, discussions and social events, will take place in Hamburg on April 23 to 24, 2018.

Maritime industry professionals from all over the world including shipowners, shipbuilding companies, shipyards, ports, associations and maritime service providers will convene to discuss developments in the shipping sector. 

According to the organiser Wisdom Events, the shipping industry is feeling the pressure to reduce its emissions and lessen its negative effect on the environment.

“Unfortunately, because of the globality of the industry, it’s difficult to have a central entity that could impose green initiatives on all shipping practitioners”, said Wisdom Events. “That is why there is the need for collaboration in order to make significant progress.”

To achieve this goal, Wisdom Events has organised the Green Maritime Forum. The attendee list includes industry leaders such as the MSC Group, CMA CGM, Carnival Maritime, Hapag-Lloyd AG, AP Møller – Maersk, Shell Marine, Total Lubmarine and Ardmore Shipping Corporation.

The main subjects of the forum include factors affecting shipping and bunkering progress, environmental regulations, smart shipping solutions, latest maritime industry trends, and more.
