“Germany is slow. The EU is slow. The IMO roadmap is disastrously short-sighted,” is the assessment of Arnaud Boehmann. The Fridays For Future activist wishes the maritime industry would take a more active role in fighting climate change.
For the online discussion with international shipping experts during gmec he will be joined by Sönke Diesener from Naturschutzbund (NABU), a German nature conservation organisation.
The maritime sector is the first global industry to commit to specific climate protection goals. Alternative fuels, ballast water management, efficient propulsion systems – environment protection measures the shipping industry is taking today will be explained by Lars Robert Pedersen from the Baltic and International Maritime Council, BIMCO; Bud Darr from the container shipping giant MSC; and Peter Müller-Baum from VDMA, the German engineering industry association.
Can environmental organisations and the shipping industry find common ground in addressing climate protection? Viewers will find out by watching the free-of-charge streamed event at SMM DIGITAL on 3 February from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM CET.
“As part of SMM DIGITAL, gmec provides a great platform for discussing the best solutions for climate and environment in a transparent way. I am looking forward to a thought-provoking conversation between the experts,” says Claus Ulrich Selbach, Business Unit Director – Maritime and Technology Fairs & Exhibitions at Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH.
