How to use the full potential of decarbonisation

Narve Mjøs, Vice President of DNV Maritime & and Founder of the Norwegian Green Shipping Programme, is to speak at Session 3 of Get Set for Workboat 2050 Series 3 ‘Incentivising Decarbonisation - Exploring different approaches to incentivisation’.

Norwegian authorities have set ambitious goals. Greenhouse gas emissions shall be reduced by 50 percent by 2030 for domestic shipping and fishing – a huge challenge. To succeed, Norway will require approximately 700 low-emission ships and 400 zero-emission ships by 2030, distributed across all vessel categories.

Narve says, “Reduced emissions from the shipping industry have a high focus both in the industry and from the Norwegian authorities at all levels. Through the Green Shipping Programme we can utilise the full potential from the maritime cluster and together collaborate to realise good ideas.

“By sharing knowledge and experience, we are convinced that new technology and new solutions can be scaled and give the industry international advantage and be more competitive. Due to a fast development, the industry also needs to rapidly adapt to this change.

“The Green Shipping Programme provides a good basis for realising ground-breaking pilot projects.”

The Green Shipping Programme (GSP), a public-private partnership, aims to advance the Norwegian government’s maritime strategies and plans. The programme’s vision is to develop and strengthen Norway’s goal to establish the world’s most efficient and environmentally friendly shipping.

In the spring of 2022, the program included more than 103 private companies and organisations as well as 11 public observers. The Green Shipping Programme is financed partly by public allocations from the State budget of Norway and partly by the members themselves.

Series 3 of Get Set for Workboat 2050 looks at practical applications of decarbonisation and provide examples of businesses and workboat operators who are successfully employing technology, innovation, and design to reduce the carbon footprint.  Learn from the expert speakers and panels as they demonstrate the benefits and efficiencies being gained by commercial marine businesses who are leading the way forward on the route to net zero.
