Join Ms Magda Kopzcynska, Deputy Director-General of DG Move and Ms Maria Skipper Schwenn, Executive Director at Danish Shipping as well as other distinguised speakers for the webinar on alternative fuels to learn more about the climate, safety and environmental impacts of alternative fuels.

Alternative fuels play a crucial part in the transitioning of the maritime sector towards a more green and climate friendly industry. The webinar will give participants an introduction to the political ambitions and key policy initiatives, that are underway in the coming months related to alternative fuels. Moreover, the webinar will also include speakers from the industry, who can present the business side of this transition, and the possibilities they see. Finally, the aim of the webinar will also be to discuss the more practical and potential environmental concerns and solutions related to the use of alternative fuels as well as possible spillover effects to other modes of transport.

The webinar is organised by PA Ship, PA Transport, PA Energy and PA Safe under the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
