Climate change poses great challenges for the shipping sector. It is a key element of consumption and production systems worldwide but what we consume and how goods for consumption are provisioned will both affect and be affected by climate change.

This conference focuses on the shipping system aiming to ask the following questions:

1. What types of technological, operational and other supply-side changes are needed to deliver a secure and resilient, low-carbon shipping system?

2. How might climate change policies and impacts in other sectors (e.g. the energy sector) influence patterns of trade and the demand for shipping?

3. What are the barriers and opportunities towards a radically decarbonised shipping system?

Presentations from academics from physical to social sciences, as well as industrialists and policymakers will cover a wide range of topics including:

  • Low carbon technologies and practices
  • Trade and security
  • Climate impacts on trade routes, ships and ports
  • Low carbon shipping policies (EEDI/EEOI) and progress towards decarbonisation
  • Financing change in shipping
  • Future scenarios
  • Radical change
  • Low-carbon consumption-production systems

This event is aimed at shipping sector stakeholders and academics interested in the future of shipping. Plenary talks will be followed by panel discussions to draw attention to debates relevant to the shipping sector and raise the profile of the climate change challenge to strategic planning.
