Sustainable shipping

The workshop will provide insights to the development of shipping as a main pillar in a future sustainable transport system.

Shipping is, without competition, the most energy efficient mode of transportation and will play an essential role in a globalized society.

However, measures need to be taken with regards to emission and energy efficiency to ascertain that shipping can be a part of a sustainable future society.

The workshop will provide insights, thoughts and proposals on this challenge.
