Shaping the Future of Shipping

COP26

The International Chamber of Shipping at COP26

The 2021 UNFCCC COP26 meeting in Glasgow is the most important COP meeting to be held since the 2015 meeting that gave rise to the Paris Agreement. Recent policy announcements from John Kerry, US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom have shown there will be a significant focus on the shipping industry.

Shaping the Future of Shipping will

  • Provide the flagship point of contact for the shipping industry at COP26 to showcase its leadership on decarbonising the industry to the COP26 delegates.
  • Address key strategic issues in shipping’s rapidly evolving decarbonization journey
  • Draw in influential stakeholders including high-level policymakers, government and industry representatives, leaders of international organisations and regulators who are attending COP26
  • Enable influential stakeholders to understand what shipping is doing to improve the sustainability of the industry and to discuss its requirements in terms of the regulatory environment, finance and R&D to accelerate the pace of decarbonization towards net zero

At COP26 the shipping industry has a major opportunity to meet and discuss with government representatives and policymakers at the negotiations. Recognised by UNFCCC as part of the official COP26 programme, Shaping the Future of Shipping will showcase shipping’s ground-breaking decarbonization work and present a positive and united outlook to the COP negotiations.

Our CEO Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen participate in the opening panel, Shipping’s 4th Propulsion Revolution – The Commitment and the Challenge.

We encourage all stakeholders of the shipping community: shipowners, ship managers, charters, lawyers, financiers etc. and clients to commit to their support of shipping in its work to tackle climate change and join us in Glasgow 5th and 6th November 2021.
