*ZE = Zero Emissions

Ship ZERO°26 – 1,2,3 Nov 2021

‘Ship ZERO° 26’ laid out 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 first deliverable was a policy paper which was shared with COP26 delegates. The final deliverable will be a collaborative and interactive navigational chart (‘Charging to True Zero°’), which will be shared with COP26 delegates, shipping and energy industry stakeholders, as well as delivered to the IMO, in both written report and film formats.

Ship ZERO°26.5 – 20 JUN 2022

At ‘Ship ZERO° 26.5’ we examined unmitigatedly disruptive projects and collaboration tools, demonstrating concrete examples that propel us to True Zero.

If we are going to reduce emissions in line with 1.5, shipping as we know it must cease to exist.

How can we disrupt business as usual without disrupting the flow of goods?

This will require a disruptive level collaboration!
