Event: London International Shipping Week 11/09/19
Join us on September 11, 2019 to discover how cross-industry collaboration and cutting-edge science can improve business resilience, safety and efficiency.
Our climate is changing.
Globally, we are experiencing rising temperatures, changes in extreme weather and rising sea levels. Consequently, coastal infrastructure and the maritime shipping industry are becoming increasingly vulnerable.
Weather and climate related impacts are identiﬁed by global industry leaders as some of the most signiﬁcant risks to their businesses.
But how prepared are the offshore, shipping and ports sectors?
Can we make better use of cross-industry collaboration and cutting-edge science to enhance resilience, ensure safety and improve efficiency?
Join us aboard the Northern Lighthouse Board’s operational vessel PHAROS, during London International Shipping Week.
A series of intimate roundtable discussions will then follow involving all delegates. This interactive session will give you the opportunity to shape discussions and generate lively debate.
