Over the course of the next decade, the race to decarbonize is expected to ramp up. Driven by carbon markets and carbon pricing, global efforts to decarbonize all aspects of society will be in full force. The ability to facilitate the energy transition hinges on the incorporation of alternative fuels and without shipping, this vision cannot be made a reality.
In this year’s Sustainability Summit, ABS brought together leaders from both the maritime industry as well as other industries to explore the potential of carbon economics and the role of the emerging hydrogen and carbon value chains in transforming shipping and driving the global energy transition.
Hosted by Georgios Plevrakis, Vice President of Global Sustainability, ABS
Panel #1: Crossing the Chasm, Carbon Economics in Maritime
In this panel we will discuss how carbon economics will be one of the pivotal forces behind the decarbonization of shipping and how key elements like carbon pricing as well as green and sustainable financing will act as a catalyst.
Panel #2: Emerging Value Chains, Hydrogen and Carbon Capture
In this panel we will discuss how the interconnection of the hydrogen and carbon value chains can provide the answer to global decarbonization but will require global support to rapidly ramp up the infrastructure and technology development for shipping.
