Invitation to seminar November 30, 2018

The Norwegian Shipowners’ Association invites you to a seminar where leading climate experts and maritime representatives will share their perspectives on what challenges and opportunities lie ahead.

Limiting global warming to 1.5°C would require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society.

This is the key message from the recently published report from the UN Climate panel, IPCC. Is the shipping industry positioned and prepared to contribute?

The seminar will be followed by a lunch buffet.
