22 November – Climate change challenge: Shipping’s fair share
Hosted by Danish EcoCouncil at the Clarion Hotel, arrival terminal in Copenhagen Airport.
At COP 21 in Paris, the parties agreed to limit global temperature increase to max. 2 °C above pre-industrial times and pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 °C. The Paris Agreement will require a significant decrease in use of fossil fuels. Is this compatible with the expected significant increase in shipping? Is low carbon shipping possible and what are the costs and the connected consequences?

Organic coffee transported between continents by wind, the sailing cargo ship the AVONTUUR will arrive in Bremen on Earth Day 2017 signalling a fundamental shift towards a truly sustainable shipping culture. What better way to wake people up to the lackluster approach of the shipping industry towards global warming than through a cup of coffee?
Germany is the largest coffee importer in the European Union and Bremen is the city at the centre of the trade. Within Germany, the shipping of this daily ritual emits over 160,000 tons of CO2 per year which equivalent to 35,000 passenger vehicles be driven for one year.
In cooperation with EU Dual Port Project, IWSA and BREMEN BIKE IT.

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.
