Ambition 1.5oC: Global Shipping’s Action Plan will gather experts from across the shipping industry to create the Action Plan required for shipping to meet the high ambition level indicated in the Paris Agreement. The Action Plan developed will be used as a briefing document for UNFCCC delegates.
This will be a highly energetic and productive day-long summit held on Monday November 13, 2017 with selected, invitation-only participants coming together on the spacious MS RheinFantasie. The event will host only a limited number of presentations and innovation focus sessions. It will be mainly focused on moderated work group sessions.
Attendees will work together to examine the technologies, facilities and tools required to create an ambitious, low carbon action plan using a reviewed and accelerated ‘pathway’ developed by the Sustainable Shipping Initiative as its framework. The outcomes of this summit will be enhanced by the collaborative approach being adopted, bringing together representatives from other industry and policy groups that are working in the field, to deliver a strong industry-led plan that can meet the 1.5oC challenge.
Deliverables from this unique summit will include the Action Plan Outline, which participants will be pledging action on, a briefing document for UNFCCC delegates and a media package, which we expect to have a significant impact at COP23 and beyond. The event and attending participants travel and accommodation will be fully carbon offset.
This event is by invitation only. Gavin Allwright, Secretary of the International Windship Association and partner in the DUAL Ports SAIL cargo pilot, will be attending this conference.
