The Common Goal: Sustainability & Emissions Targets
Thursday 20th May 2021, 2:00PM – 3:00PM BST
Sustainability and the push to decarbonise remain key priorities of port terminals with continued pressure from IMO to reduce carbon emissions. This debate will address the problem and try to find a common solution to what is a common aim of the industry.

– To what extent is Port to Port collaboration and cooperation with shipping companies key to achieving industry wide decarbonisation?
– Which plug & play technologies can immediately reduce emissions in your terminal?
– Is continued Automation and Electrification the answer?
– Understanding the results of fuel cell vs battery cell electrification. Will the industry pass on Hydrogen and head for battery electrics?
– Is sustainability ever the main incentive for new projects, or just a consideration?
