New IMO emission targets require bold actions. Are your company ready for the future regulations?

Breakfast seminar 31 May: Sustainable shipping

Shipping nations have agreed to drastically reduce their emissions within the next 30 years. Will the industry reach the targets in time, and how?

Viking Heat Engines hereby invites you to a breakfast seminar in Oslo on 31 May (8:30-10:00 am) that will focus on the new and ambitious emission targets recently agreed upon by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

Who will drive the agreement forward towards a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gases, and is this a realistic goal? Will there be a CO2 tax on shipping, and how does this relate to the 2020 target on sulfur emissions?  And will the new agreement finally give shipping companies from Northern Europe a competitive edge in the race towards a sustainable shipping industry?

All these questions and more will be discussed during this timely event that gathers some interesting voices from the government, shipping  industry and green tech.
