On 11 December at COP25 in Madrid SSI will host a side event at the UN's annual climate conference - COP25 - during which the report The Role of Sustainable Biofuels in the Decarbonisation of Shipping will be launched.
Outlining the outcome of an inquiry into the sustainability and availability of biofuels for shipping, the report was compiled by SSI to share the findings on the role that biofuels could play in the decarbonisation of the shipping industry.
Throughout 2019, SSI’s inquiry has explored the issues at play surrounding the sustainability and availability of biofuels for shipping, bringing an important perspective to the conversation on alternative fuel options for decarbonisation and accelerating the delivery of emission reductions. SSI supports a zero-emission shipping sector by 2050 and is both fuel- and technology-agnostic.
COP25 is an opportunity for SSI to launch the report, presenting the findings and recommendations of our inquiry and for key stakeholders to share their perspectives on these. The side event will take place within the WWF Pavilion, with further opportunity for discussion later in the morning during a Meet-the-Expert session at the EU Pavilion.
