    make money (CO2 shipping, offshore wind)
  • Shipping industry responsibilities around the ocean economy

Business and Technology Innovation

  • Sourcing investment to drive and support maritime innovation
  • Supply & demand dynamics – is collaboration working?
  • New fuels, new ships, new infrastructure

Security
