    Decarbonizing Ocean Container Supply Chains: What Shippers Demand Versus Solutions Available Today

    Logistics teams are under growing pressure to make progress in decarbonizing supply chains by reducing Scope 3 emissions — those emissions indirectly generated by their vendors, including ocean carriers and freight forwarders, when moving their goods. Those pressures are coming from end-customers, investors, and other stakeholders who are increasingly requiring ESG reporting. But container shipping, like the wider maritime industry, is in the very early stages of decarbonizing ocean borne transportation, with a decades-long journey ahead. In this session, shippers will express their needs while maritime industry experts will assess current efforts to decarbonize, including possible fuel types, vessels on order, and potential further regulatory changes.
