The first event of the MIAL Decarbonisation Summit Series was held in Melbourne on the 27 April 2022 and was attended by a range of industry and government stakeholders, including MIAL members, the wider maritime industry, energy and service providers and representatives from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications, The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and AMSA.
The summit series has been incredibly well-received, and is the first energy focussed forum in Australia with an emphasis on the shipping industry.
MIAL aims to use this Summit series, to help build critical networks of key stakeholders within the maritime industry, new energy providers and relevant government agencies and departments to consult, collaborate and improve strategic coordination to ensure the path to decarbonisation of the maritime industry is as rapid and efficient as it needs to be.
Following the event, the MIAL Decarbonisation Focus group met to discuss next steps and finalise drafting the Statement from the MIAL Maritime Decarbonisation Summit. The purpose of this statement is to signal to government the urgent need for progress on decarbonisation of Australia’s maritime industry and that we wish to partner with government to achieve this.
This series of events isn’t just a talkfest, MIAL is committed to using the Summit Series as a platform to consult, collaborate and improve strategic coordination to ensure the path to decarbonisation is as rapid and efficient as it needs to be.
MIAL are hard now working on the next event in the series, which is earmarked for September 2022. Want to join us? Please fill in the expression of interest below.
