Navigating Sustainability: GHGs and ESG

MARCH 2, 2023 / Houston Pilots HQ / Deer Park, TX | USA

12:00 PM to 5:00 PM CST



Global society is getting closer to the marine transportation system, especially with its demands for performance. This is a "new normal" facing shipping today which needs to be addressed in order to be successful moving forward.  Public demands for ESG are accelerating, warnings about climate change are being heard, lending practices are changing, technology is advancing, and other impacts. The shipping industry needs to find solutions to meet impending global requirements for reducing CO2 emissions and more. What they are looking for is accountability and transparency. This is augmented by social justice organizations raising awareness through raising awareness through global communications, prompting companies such as Patagonia, Shell, Cargill and other to demand performance indicators. Investors, too, are scrutinizing these metrics, begging the question: How does your company measure up? Where do you stand on sustainability? How WILL our industry be judged on the world's stage?  How WILL our industry meet these demands?  Are these threats for shipping or opportunity? Join your peers to learn what industry experts believe is the pathway forward and associated challenges for GHGs and ESG.
