HYBRID EVENT

1, 2, 3, NOV 2021

GLASGOW, UNITED KINGDOM

The leading international collaboration platform for achieving true zero in the maritime sector, Zero Emissions Ship Technology Association (ZESTAs), is organizing a disruptive and interactive event coinciding with COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland.

This hybrid face-to-face/virtual event is your COP26 opportunity to align with the razor’s edge of innovation, driving the maritime industry toward wave-breaking change.

CHARGING TO TRUE ZERO

ZESTAs is an international trade association of global game-changers developing true zero emission ship technologies. The association is a bold voice impacting industry, legislation and regulation to uptake true zero emission ship technologies and fuels.

90% of goods traded are transported by ship. If shipping were a country it would be the 4th largest GHG polluter. The Paris Agreement will not be achieved unless the shipping industry urgently makes cohesive and aggressive headway towards true zero°.
‘Ship ZERO°: Charging to True Zero°’ brings together innovators, thought leaders, regulators and first movers from the shipping and energy sectors to pinpoint collaborative development opportunities and identify pathways to enabling large-scale deployment of true zero
technologies.

This high-profile event is an unprecedented opportunity to engage with leading international disruptors, aligning your brand with real-world solutions for mitigating and eliminating the climate impacts of commercial shipping.

What will ‘Ship ZERO°’ deliver?

‘Ship ZERO°’ will chart a course to true zero emissions using the waypoints of existing technologies and innovations, combining perspectives and experiences from a wide range of industry stakeholders to plot a course through the stormy seas of regulation, finance, new technological developments and fuel uncertainty. The deliverable will be a collaborative and interactive navigational chart (‘Charging to True Zero°’), to be shared with COP26 delegates, shipping and energy industry stakeholders as well as being delivered to the IMO, in both written report and film formats.
