The mindset of sustainability and efficiency is the key to unlocking the successful business formula in the maritime industry. In the upcoming years the maritime industry will have to conform to even more new regulations and the question is whether we are there yet. Has enough been done to create a sustainable shipping market? Which latest green technologies can contribute best to achieving the determined goals? Which fuels should the sector turn to, in order to drive the most effective economic and environmental outcome? There are numerous issues that call for decisions and collaborative thinking, therefore, events like the SUSTAINABLE SHIPPING AND PORTS FORUM contribute to the sector by providing an opportunity for all stakeholders to meet and discuss industry outlook, look for ways to cooperate and find solutions to most urgent issues as well as exchange good practices.
