Transport & Environment (T&E), Danish Ecological council, NABU and the European Climate Foundation (ECF) invite you to discuss "Decarbonisation of International Shipping: policy measure options, and how to pay for the transition".
The Paris Agreement’s objectives cannot be achieved without action to address rapidly growing emissions from international aviation and shipping, however these emissions sit outside of national targets. At the conclusion of COP21, the two UN agencies which regulate these sectors (ICAO for aviation and IMO for shipping) promised big action in 2016. Did they deliver? The event will consider what progress, if any, was made this year, what impact it may have on these sectors and what needs to happen now.
Transport & Environment (T&E), with the financial support of Umweltbundesamt (UBA), is convening a policy discussion on the contribution of shipping to the EU's emissions reduction targets for 2030. The event will bring together high-profile speakers from industry, governments and academia and NGOs to discuss how the sector can carries its fair share of the burden to meet the objectives of the Paris climate agreement.
European NGOs working on sustainable shipping, European and Greek policy makers and industry representatives will share their views on future challenges and opportunities for Europe’s maritime industry.
Setting mandatory global and regional speed limits for shipping is legally and technically feasible and does not require major administrative and economic burdens for enforcement. Reduced speed results in dramatic reductions in ship emissions - CO2, air pollution and particulates - and does not pose technical, operational or safety dangers. These were the main conclusions of a 4 October seminar on ship speed limits organised in Brussels by Transport & Environment and Seas at Risk.

On 17 October 2007 the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union, the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA), the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and the European Federation for Transport and Environment (T&E) organised a seminar in Brussels to discuss air pollution and emissions of greenhouse gases from maritime transport.
