ECSA F.I.T. lunchtime webinars - Finance, Innovation, Transition
The shipping and financial services stakeholders are meeting online to discuss the current opportunities and challenges of ship financing.
ECSA is organising an event to bring together regulators, maritime experts and the financial services stakeholders to discuss the currently ongoing finance initiatives and to find practical and usable solutions for facilitating the European ambitions.
In the times ahead, the European shipping industry is facing both opportunities and challenges.
The shipping industry needs sufficiently available and affordable financing to keep its commitment to work towards a sustainable economy. The success of the shipping industry goes hand in hand with the success of the financial services industry. Let it be regulator or market actor, the shipping industry and the financial services industry need to join forces to get one step closer towards the common goal.
European shipowners cooperate with the shipbuilding sector, ports, equipment manufacturers and the research community, to name just a few. This facilitates innovative and sustainable solutions to drive the whole maritime industry together towards a greener future in key areas such as air emissions, waste management, and the protection of marine life. The European shipping industry embraces these challenges and is committed to taking the global lead for green shipping.
In light of the adjusted regulatory timeline of the sustainable finance taxonomy and in order to most efficiently contribute to the ongoing work of the European Commission and the Sustainable Finance Platform, the 3rd webinar - Transition will be postponed until September 9, 2021 (11.00 a.m. CET).
This webinar is focusing on the short-term and mid-term financing needs and possible solutions for the entire shipping industry to advance in transition.
Details for registration and full programme to follow soon.
