Main Session 4:
Sustainability of the Shipping Industry – Reaching a new normal

Time: 14:00-14:50 Wednesday 9 November

Venue: Mässhallen

Society health benefit from green shipping: We need to continue! 
Achieving zero environmental and climate impact from shipping, while remaining prosperous, has been a vision since the EUSBSR goals were formulated. For this, cooperation is crucial, not least in a PPP perspective. During this session we present results & unsolved issues, discuss what public private partnerships are to achieve next in regards of risk-sharing, in order to ensure reaching the BSR Vision 2030. And. We need to continue since society health benefits from green shipping are estimated, so far, to €1 million / ship & year. 

What we like to achieve
An increased engagement of stakeholders in achieving the common goal of prosperous transport at sea with zero environmental and climate impact, including engaging new stakeholders; higher awareness of the public-private partnerships in North & Baltic Sea region that are effective and delivering results, including benefit to the society and the sea, and to gain a common view on a risk sharing solution when implementing a new normal where green investments are the most profitable choice.
