GLOBAL SUSTAINABLE SHIPPING AND PORTS FORUM – COPENHAGUE, DENMARK
David Ferrer Desclaux, CTO and co-founder of bound4blue, attended the Global Sustainable Shipping and Ports forum, in which he presented the technology and the company. The maritime industry urgently needs to incorporate innovation and sustainability into its business formula, as it will have to face increasingly restrictive regulations in the coming years. There are many issues that require decision-making, such as improving efficiency through sustainable technologies, use of less polluting fuels, or adapting to a circular economy. Events such as Global Sustainable Shipping and Ports Forum help to address all these issues, as it offers the opportunity for all stakeholders in the sector to meet, exchange ideas, discuss about future collaborations and find solutions for the maritime industry. Some of the key topics discussed during this event are reducing environmental footprint, alternative fuels, green ports’ future outlook, service and contributions and smart shipping.
