The maritime industry represents 3 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. Ships last for 20-30 years. Unless shipowners act now their global share will rise. The Nordic region is upping the game


09:15 AM - 10:00 AM

SEC Centre, Hall 4
Exhibition Way
United Kingdom


This is a joint event between the Nordic Pavilion in Glasgow and the Nordic COP26 Hub in Helsinki. Join us in Helsinki at the Nordic Culture Point (Kajsaniemenkatu 9).

GMT: 09.15 - 10.00

EET: 11.15 - 12.00


The maritime sector has an obligation to cut emissions. Once efficiency measures are exhausted and slow steaming has become widespread – new ship types and low or no-carbon fuels has to take over.  Are the maritime sector prepared for this quantum leap? What are the supporting routes to decarbonizing the industry? What are the concrete projects and measures currently being implemented in the Nordic region?
