“Shipping- part of the climate solution”
The International Chamber of Shipping, Armateurs de France and the Norwegian Shipowners’ Association

In recent decades, human activity has impacted climate and natural environment all over our planet. 90 per cent of the world’s traded goods are seaborne and shipping is today the most energy-efficient mode of transportation. As the largest and most important means of global, intercontinental transport, shipping has a strong responsibility for ensuring sustainable development and a healthy environment.
Climate change is a global challenge, and shipping wants to take part in the important discussions on climate change mitigation. The industry is committed to reducing its CO2 footprint and is working to improve its climate performance.

Open discussion on “Shipping – part of the climate solution”
Tuesday December 1st at Centre Pompidou, Paris, at 10 am- 14 pm
https://www.rederi.no/en/aktuelt/2015/shipping–cop-21-roundtable/
Speakers include:
Ségolène Royal, French minister of Ecology; Sustainable development and Energy
Christiana Figueres , Executive Secretary, UNFCCC (tbc)
Peter Hinchliffe, Secretary General, ICS

RETURN OF SAIL – “Fleet of cargo sailing ships unites under Fairtransport flag.”

Brigantine Tres Hombres made her maiden voyage in 2009 to the climate conference in Copenhagen. Since then, year after year she has been sailing down to the West indies and up to Europe, hauling precious cargoes of cacao, coffee, tea, rum, spices and more. Leaving in her wake: no emissions, and just the wind, for the next ship to use… Now, those next ships are here, and being united. Since last year the beautifull newly built lugger Grayhound is trading with cargo, the famous cargo schooner Avontuur is being refitted in Germany as we speak and the ancient (built in 1873) wooden trawler Nordlys is making ready to set sail with cargo again, this summer. The owners of all these ships have now officially agreed to unite under and be promoted by the flag of Fairtransport.

A big thank you to all of the organisers of the event, especially everyone at MARIN, Deltares and the S@IL team, IDMM and the Province of Fryslan.

All IWSA members that attended all agreed that the events were very informative. Excellent presentations from IWSA members – MARIN, Neoline, Crain Technologies, Wind + Wing, Norsepower, University of Tokyo, University of South Pacific.

One of the outcomes from the event is that IWSA will be one of the repositories for the documents and other outcomes from the 3-year EU Intereg IV, S@IL program. We are delighted to help deseminate those outcomes and will work with the S@IL team as early as possible after the conclusion of the program in June.

We will round things off with a few project presentations, voting on key IWSA issues and agreeing on the plan for the second half of the year.

International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) ReportIRENA Renewable Energy Options for Shipping – Technology Brief
This report was compiled for the UN-Affiliated, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) by Dr Peter Nuttall and Alison Newell (University of South Pacific – IWSA Associate Member) with input from Dr Alice Bows-Larkin (Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Manchester), Diane Gilpin (B9 Shipping – IWSA member), Dr Christophe Rynikiewicz (University of Sussex – IWSA supporter), Dr Tristan Smith (The Energy Institute, University College London – IWSA supporter) and Michael Traut (Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Manchester) and Gavin Allwright (now IWSA secretary)  NOTE: This is not an IWSA officially endorsed document (compiled prior to launch of the association)
