Feedback from the First Session

The 2nd MIAL Maritime Decarbonisation Summit – 12th October 2022, Sydney Australia

Much has changed since the first event was held in April – we have a new government and a diverse federal parliament elected with climate action firmly on the agenda. We have a legislated (almost) domestic emissions reduction target of 43% by 2030, and while the political will is apparent, the pathway for decarbonisation of Australia’s maritime industry is still undefined.

The 2nd Maritime Decarbonisation Summit event will move the conversation on. From raising the profile of the challenge we face, and the need for collaboration across industry and government, to exploring some of the projects in the planning and the potential mechanisms that will create the regulatory and economic environment needed to help the industry transition.
