Online-Event: How to decarbonise shipping by 2050?

What technological and regulatory solutions for European shipping to reach net-zero emissions by 2050?
About this event

With shipping’s global emissions expected to rise by as much as 50% until mid-century, shipping urgently needs to start decarbonising. As the sector expects the first-ever EU regulation to switch to sustainable alternative fuels, the FuelEU Maritime, it is high time to answer the right questions:

What technological and regulatory solutions to reach net zero-carbon shipping by 2050? How far can e-fuels lead us and by when? Is there room for so-called transitional fuels? Join our webinar to discuss concrete solutions with MEPs Ms Catherine Chabaud (Renew) and Jutta Paulus (Greens/EFA) and a panel of leading industry, financial and civil society experts.
