Group Partners to facilitate ideas for decarbonisation action plan

Ambition 1.5oC: Global Shipping’s Action Plan’ summit Group Partners will help facilitate and capture ideas from participants of the Ambition 1.5oC: Global Shipping’s Action Plan’ summit

Shipping leaders developing an action plan for the decarbonisation of international shipping have appointed Group Partners to facilitate and capture ideas.

During the ‘Ambition 1.5oC: Global Shipping’s Action Plan’ summit taking place on 13 November during the 23rd session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 23), a structured visual thinking technique developed by Group Partners to capture complexity through visualisation will be used to help reveal new patterns and approaches to familiar challenges.

Diane Gilpin, CEO and founder of the Smart Green Shipping Alliance, part of the summit core organising committee which appointed Group Partners, commented: “There is a plethora of near market-ready technologies, we have a heterogeneous global fleet and can match the best technologies to the most suitable ships to build a future proof, green supply chain to support global trade in a decarbonized future.”

UNFCCC review

Following the summit, a copy of the draft action plan created will be delivered to UNFCCC delegates, National delegation focal points, the UNFCCC secretariat and all relevant national policy makers giving a summary of the high ambition approaches agreed at the summit.

Co-organisers of the ‘Ambition 1.5oC’ summit include Lloyd’s Register, MAN Diesel & Turbo, RightShip, MARIKO, Danish Shipping, International Windship Association (IWSA) and Green Ship of the Future.

The Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI), Carbon War Room and UMAS are acting as advisors.

The action plan is in line with meeting the target of limiting global temperatures to 1.5oC, as indicated in the Paris Agreement.
