The Lloyd’s List Podcast: Sustainability goes digital
Listen to the latest edition of Lloyd’s List’s weekly podcast — your free weekly briefing on the stories shaping shipping
This week Johannah Christensen of the Global Maritime Forum gives us insight into how one of the industry's leading actors in the decarbonisation space sees the efforts made elsewhere in the business, and what it hopes to tackle during its most important meeting of the year next month
THE Global Maritime Forum, the organisation behind some of the leading sustainability initiatives in the industry, including the Poseidon Principles and the Getting to Zero Coalition, is founded on the idea that progress happens when people from all parts of a system come together to discuss challenges and work together on finding new solutions.
So, the fact that the GMF’s annual summit, dubbed shipping’s own mini-Davos, is not happening in London next month for obvious reasons, could have been a problem.
But our guest this week seems confident that the work is progressing very nicely in a digital format and actually might be better in some respects.
Johannah Christensen is the managing director and head of projects & programmes at GMF, and in this week’s podcast she talks to our reporter Anastassios Adamopoulos about how virtual brainstorming and co-ordination actually works pretty well.
They also discuss how the maritime sector has responded to the decarbonisation challenge and why even the most progressive thinkers probably need to adjust their expectations when it comes to the speed of change heading our way as an industry.
