Workshop on Nordic Action for a Transformation to Low-carbon Shipping

ZVT participates as a presenter in the segment titled Technology: Opportunities and Challenges for a Transition to Low-carbon Shipping in the workshop on Nordic Action for a Transformation to Low-carbon Shipping.

The Nordic Council of Ministers through the Nordic Working Group for Global Climate Negotiations (NOAK) has launched a project,Transition to Low-carbon Shipping, aiming to explore potential for Nordic action in the area of maritime transport and climate change after the Paris Agreement. The project, which runs from August 2016 to February 2017, has been commissioned and will be carried out by a consortium of three renowned institutions: the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, the Energy Institute, University College London, United Kingdom and Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.

In regards to the project, a workshop is held on on Nordic Action for a Transformation to Low-carbon Shipping. The workshop will bring together academia, government, industry and other stakeholders. The output of this workshop will be fed into a report and recommendations we will prepare for the Nordic Council of Ministers in January 2017.
