There is an increasing urgency for all of us to address climate change and there is a need to work together. Most of the problems, and their solutions, overlap and require collaboration. The latest initiative to help deal with this is Green Ports & Shipping Congress – Reducing Emissions Together, to be held in Singapore on 6-7 March 2024.

Caring for the environment by reducing emissions is a priority for all our businesses. The ports and terminals communities are served by a number of organisations and events with this specific agenda, so too are the shipping communities. But practically, neither group can achieve their objectives without working together or without the direct co-operation of the other.

Mercator is fortunate to have a unique insight into the requirements of both, having produced 18 annual GreenPort Congress’s in co-operation with the leading ports in Europe, this year branching out to Australia. Mercator has also produced 44 annual Propulsion & Future Fuels conferences, currently based in Hamburg. These events are supported by our sector specific, knowledge-based online magazines, Port Strategy, GreenPort and The Motorship.

The first objective of Congress will be to identify and prioritise the areas that port-based organisations and shipping companies need to work together on, for their mutual advantage, to reduce emissions. The second will be to produce a concrete action plan/shared best practices charter going forward, as statement of intent, for all interested parties going forward.

The audience will include policy makers; ports and terminal operators, shipping companies; shippers and logistics companies; fuel and propulsion providers; classification societies and associated decarbonisation clusters.

The programme will cover all aspects of energy transition plans and implementation as they affect port operations and ships. Sessions and streams will address the required infrastructure, bunkering, technical solutions and how these align with the shipping lines and logistics chains. Practically, one of the key agenda items will address Green Corridors and the key role Singapore has in developing these as one of the world’s greatest hubs.

Mercator will also be producing a web-based magazine with regular e-Newsletters so the project has a life for 365 days a year, is regular and can be developed further.

The founding supporting organisations are:

International Association of Ports & Harbors

BIMCO

The Blue Visby Solution

Between them, BIMCO and IAPH represent well over 60% of the world seaborne trade and fleets with some excellent initiatives already in place.

Mercator CEO Andrew Webster said, ‘I sincerely trust we can establish this collaboration and it develops its own momentum going forward. All these people and organisations want to make a difference and by working more closely together we can produce quicker outcomes. Please get in contact with us if you would like to contribute to this initiative’.

Green Ports & Shipping Congress– Reducing Emissions Together, for 2-days will include welcome address, keynote speakers and various sessions and working groups, with ample opportunity to network during the refreshment and lunch breaks.

The inaugural Green Ports & Shipping Congress is the first conference to identify and prioritise the areas that ports-based organisations and shipping companies need to work together for their mutual advantage to reducing emissions.

Caring for the environment by reducing emissions is a priority for all our businesses. The ports and terminals communities are served by a number of organisations and events with this specific agenda, so too are the shipping communities. But practically, neither group can achieve their objectives without working together and with the direct co-operation of the other.

The conference promotes collaboration and debate on the challenges and opportunities affecting the industry, whilst enabling conference delegates and participants to establish and build on relationships through the networking opportunities on offer. It is a place for industry professionals to meet and discuss all aspects of energy transition plans and implementation as they affect port operations and ships as well discuss the required infrastructure, alternative fuel options/bunkering, the technical solutions and how these align with the shipping lines and logistics chains.

It is a must attend event for those involved in Ports and Shipping including policy makers, ports and terminal operators, shipping companies, shippers and logistics companies, fuel & propulsion providers, classification societies and associated decarbonisation clusters.

Green Ports & Shipping Congress will take place from 6th-7th March 2024 in Singapore and will cover a range of topics addressing the aspects of energy transition plans and implementation as they affect port operations and ships.

It is a must-attend event for policy makers, ports and terminal operators, shipping companies, shippers and logistics companies, fuel & propulsion providers, classification societies and associated decarbonisation clusters.
