Agenda Session

Beyond Buzzwords for Sustainability in Shipyard and Port Operations

Nov 30 2023

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM CST

Main Stage

Moderator: Jeremiah Karpowicz, Editorial Director, Diversified Communications

The green energy shift is happening now and every sector of the maritime industry is going to need to meet new standards very soon. Understanding these new regulations can be confusing and overwhelming but there are ways to approach integration that won’t cause unnecessary disruption. Ships will need to be retrofitted with new technologies, and new ships will need to be built with green energy in mind while also understanding issues related to…

• how ports and shipyards can prepare for upcoming mandates designed to drive clean and resilient operations

• what solar, wind, hydrogen and biofuel options should be considered in various contexts and operations

• whether or not increased sustainability can make bottom-line sense for your fleet, shipyard, or port

• where you begin in order to become more “sustainable”

In this session, you’ll hear from environmental certification experts as well as shipyard and port stakeholder provide insights and answers to these questions to go beyond buzzwords that dominate headlines. They’ll talk through the path they’re on when it comes to meeting and exceeding new green standards that will help outline how others can make the transition to green energy.
