5 Regulations you Should be Ready For - and Why

Regulatory change is consistently among the top concerns of maritime business leaders; this session will look at approaching changes to regulation that will impact the maritime and logistics sectors. Regulations around crewing, safety, ship operations, finance, emissions, ship building, ship recycling, ballast water and carbon taxes all affect the maritime industry.

A panel of experts have chosen their five most important regulatory challenges and will explain how they will shape our daily work.

Keynote Session: Leading the LNG transition

As the world’s main supplier of oil and a critical bunkering location on key shipping routes, the maritime industry’s choice of fuels matters to the Middle East. LNG has been adopted as an emissions-cutting fuel for vessels in operation, and the LNG-fuelled fleet is set to expand as owners plot their low-carbon transitions.

The region has extensive experience of LNG, and in this session, we will explore the opportunities LNG holds in areas including production, transportation, bunkering, retrofit and vessel operation.

The Difficult Journey to Zero Carbon Shipping

Shipping must reach zero carbon in the future, but the transition to a fully decarbonised industry creates complex related challenges for the industry. The technology and products to launch a zero-carbon oceangoing vessel do not yet exist, and there is no time to wait for a perfect solution. This session will look at the financial, regulatory and operational challenges in maintaining a viable international shipping market where companies can compete while also cutting carbon.

The clock is ticking.

Case Studies: Low Carbon Shipping

Building on the previous session, our case study will look at promising low carbon shipping projects, sharing the lessons learned in their assessment phases and the benefits of exploring new solutions to shipping’s carbon problem.

The session will be an opportunity to quiz decision makers on why they chose their route to decarbonisation, and their thoughts on the routes they did not take.
