The Clean Shipping Alliance 2020 represents a group of leading companies from the commercial shipping and cruise industries who have been leaders in emission control efforts and have made significant investments in research and analysis, funding and committing resources to comply with 2020 fuel requirements through the development and use of exhaust gas cleaning systems. Formed in 2018 with a mission to provide information and research data to better inform industry, national and international authorities, non-governmental organizations and the public on the environmental performance and benefits of open- and closed-loop exhaust gas cleaning systems and associated air and water emissions. In addition to serving as an advocate for companies working to reduce marine exhaust gas emissions, CSA 2020 will support the scheduled implementation and effective enforcement of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) requirement for a 0.5 percent global sulfur cap on fuel content as of January 1, 2020.

The shipping industry is set to face one of its most significant regulatory changes to date when the IMO’s sulphur cap comes into effect on January 1st, 2020.

Key questions our panel will tackle:
  • What is the current state of play in the countdown to the new regulation?
  • Will there be a major change in the way the industry operates in 2020?
  • How can breakbulk operators guarantee the supply of compliant fuel in all regions?
  • Who will cover the added compliance costs – ship operators or shippers?
  • What, if any, steps are in place to avoid disruption to service?
  • How will the physical fleet be affected?
  • Will there be an impact on vessel availability?
