As part of the week’s official agenda, ABL is hosting a hybrid event – both live-stream and in-person – an industry panel discussion dedicated to exploring the topic of maritime emissions today:
Reaching IMO’s 50% Emissions’ Reduction: Understanding Emissions and What To Do Next
14th September, 16:00 – 17:00 (Panel Discussion), 17:00 – 18:00 (Drinks’ reception).
The panel discussion, to be introduced and chaired by ABL’s Chief Energy Transition Officer, RV Ahilan, will focus on the following key questions:
- Looking at where we are on the decarbonisation target today, what is the crux of the issue?
- How are regulatory framework and private initiatives shaping the market ahead?
- What are the marine technologies and alternative fuels out there today and how effective are they?
- Looking at maritime beyond the vessel, what role do ports and harbours and other supporting infrastructure play?
“With sea transportation carrying approximately 80% of worldwide trade, maritime has a key role to play in our race to net-zero – and that’s not to mention emissions’ contributions from offshore construction vessels. Indeed, the IMO reported that shipping emissions had risen by 10% between 2012 and 2018 with a growing volume of trade, growth in ship size, and increasing offshore installation. To reach IMO’s decarbonisation target involves many aspects beyond the ships themselves.
“Our panel discussion will shed some light as to where we are today in reaching this target and what might the next steps be.”RV Ahilan, Chief Energy Transition Officer, ABL

- George Savvopoulos – Maritime Decarbonisation Consultant, ABL
- Paul Hill – Managing Director of Marine Engineering, ABL
