1st Blue Shipping – Summit 2011

The conference will be held on Monday 6 June 2011, at the Divani Apollon Palace, Athens, Greece. The conference is organised by MARE FORUM and BlueShip.
It is a challenge and opportunity for all the players in the maritime industry chain to come together and decide the future of one of the biggest changes to the shipping world.

They have to give priority to environmental protection and support initiatives that promote environmental responsibility and innovation. New rules and restrictions on air emissions from ships are fast approaching. Whoever is first to adapt successfully to a new MARPOL regime will be the one to win most of future business.

The new regulations will change the competitive environment in the maritime industry. Bigger companies have an advantage over small companies because they have access to more capital to invest in the new technologies. Will the costs of operating more sustainably and using cleaner LNG or low sulphur fuels, solar, wind or other alternative energies be passed on to the consumers?
