THE TRANSITION TO DECARBONIZATION – HOW TO FOOT THE BILL & WHO WILL SHARE INTO THE COST?
Going green has a significant cost. This panel will discuss alternative proposals on how to come up with funding for decarbonization, including the $5 billion IMO Maritime Research Fund (IMRF), the European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) and more. Also, how the various stakeholders involved (governments, fuel producers, charterers and shipowners) should share into the cost.
