Cyprus Shipping Chamber Celebrates World Maritime Day

The Cyprus Shipping Chamber,  celebrating the World Maritime Day, held yesterday a Members' Webinar entitled: "The Atomic Battery - a zero-emission energy revolution for maritime transport."

 

The Webinar presented prospects of alternative green fuels for smaller ships and the supply of larger ships. In a press release, the CSC stated that the celebration of the World Maritime Day “aims to turn global attention on the importance role of the Shipping Industry, which carries about 90% of world trade and its vital contribution to the Economy and Society in general.” 

 

This year's theme, "Sustainable Shipping for a Sustainable Planet", sets out to show the serious commitment of the International Maritime Organisation and the International Maritime Community in general, towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to highlight the effort taken by the IMO and its Member States towards achieving these goals. Furthermore, “it highlights the significant progress made by the global Shipping Industry on matters regarding the safety and protection of the marine environment.” 

 

To promote this year’s theme, the IMO has produced a film with the message of the IMO Secretary General, Kitack Lim.
