Maritime shipping is the backbone of international trade and carries over 80% of the volume of trade in goods. It also accounts for 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Legal structures to incentivize the transition to sustainable shipping are coming into place. But what are some of the challenges that key stakeholders experience today? What are the costs involved and how can the burden be shared? What are some incentives needed to take first steps?

During this Sustainable Maritime Transport Forum, we bring together ports, shipowners, cargo owners and regulatory authorities to discuss the state of play in the transition to sustainable shipping.
