COP26 – Shaping the Future of Shipping

  • Start: 6 November 2021 09:00 GMT
  • End: 6 November 2021 17:00 GMT

The international shipping industry is coming together with a flagship event, Shaping the Future of Shipping, in Glasgow on Saturday 6th November. The conference will address key strategic issues in shipping’s rapidly evolving decarbonisation journey and will showcase it’s efforts to decarbonise and deliver a sustainable and equitable future for the industry.

The event presents a major opportunity to meet and discuss with government representatives, regulators and policymakers at the negotiations, and to seek the high-level political support needed to ensure progress of the industry’s decarbonisation activities.

The 2021 UNFCCC COP26 meeting in Glasgow is the most important COP meeting to be held since the 2015 meeting  that gave rise to the Paris Agreement. Recent policy announcements from John Kerry, US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom have shown there will be a significant focus on the shipping industry.
