According to UNCTAD (UN Conference on Trade and Development) the global maritime industry is responsible for facilitating over 80% of the world’s trade, but also generates 3% of greenhouse gas. How the industry will thrive in the future will be shaped by several global macro factors, such as co-operation on climate change and geopolitical stability, but also by the pace of technological uptake by those working in the industry.

Navigating the Future Of Shipping will feature editorial contributions from senior opinion leaders from the UK Chamber of Shipping and the Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO), and will explore how innovation and technology are playing a vital role in the shipping industry, helping it to address the challenges and opportunities of the global maritime sector.

There are commercial opportunities for leading organisations to be featured in the programme and spearhead their own news item. If your organisation wants to share what you stand for and be part of this important conversation, please contact ITN Business’ Head Programming Director James Linden and Programming Director Jeff Blackmore.
