Making Waves: About the programme

Collaboration is key

“It’s inspiring to see the UK shipping community pulling together to embrace the challenges and opportunities we face in reducing emissions. We are excited to embark on this partnership with CWP to champion the successes and untold stories that demonstrate our industry’s shared ambition to take action on climate change and protect the environment.”

Peter Aylott, Director of Policy, UK Chamber of Shipping

A crucial industry

The shipping industry is crucial to the UK economy, bringing in nearly £19 billion and supporting 181,000 jobs, however with sustainability at the forefront of the global agenda, the industry is having to rapidly adapt and innovate to meet ambitious plans to decarbonise.

Making Waves: The Future of Shipping showcases the collaborative efforts already in place across the maritime industry, and provides a much needed platform for the exchange of ideas and best practice in order to achieve a greener, cleaner future.

In partnership with CWP, the programme will be freely available online following its launch at London International Shipping Week 2021. Join in the conversation using the hashtag #FutureOfShipping

A call to action

Along with exploring green fuels and the application of new technologies to the sector, organisations and professionals across the UK shipping industry are calling out for increased regulation in order to effectively deliver a sustainable future.

Ahead of COP26, Making Waves: The Future of Shipping sends a clear message about the need for action in tackling climate change and reducing the international shipping industry’s footprint on the environment.

In line with this need for action, the programme website is hosted by 100% renewable energy (more info here); we also offset all unavoidable carbon based travel via certified carbon credits.
