Technical Seminar - Going carbon-neutral

23 Mar 2023 11:00AM - 12:30PM Online Branch UK/NW England & N Wales

The North West England & North Wales Branch of The Nautical Institute is delighted to announce its first event of the New Year on the theme of 'going carbon-neutral': decarbonisation and operational sustainability.

In an effort to uncover exactly what companies, operators and institutions are doing to reduce their environmental impact, this interactive seminar will use real-world case studies to illustrate best (and perhaps even worst) practice, inform debate, and inspire future changes and new ideas.

Speakers will be asked the question: What actual policies have you introduced to move your ship/company/organisation/self towards being carbon-neutral?

Each speaker will have just six minutes to:

  • outline the initiative(s)
  • explain the main [non-legal] driver(s)
  • explain the actual [as against intended] impact(s)
  • summarise the financial and carbon saving(s)
  • describe what education or (re)training was required
  • describe whether any resistance was met (and, if so, how it was overcome)
  • outline any future plans/needs

Panellists will include:

Ben Monks – Svitzer UK
Mark Whitehead – Wind Cat Work Boats
Peter Aylott – UK Chamber of Shipping
Jay Illingworth – Port of Fremantle, WA

This is an online only event.
