The Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) is holding a series of seminars and webinars to investigate the availability and sustainability of biofuels for shipping – and we would like to invite you to help guide our thinking.

Research commissioned by the SSI has revealed that zero-emission vessels need to be entering the world’s fleet by 2030 – and that advanced biofuels represent one of the more economically feasible options for the shipping industry in that time-frame. However, we also recognise that a number of questions surround the current, and potential future, sustainability and availability of biofuels – and we want to build a better understanding of the issues at play before deciding whether and how to proceed.

The seminar aims to provide clarity to the shipping industry as to why there is such a wide range of estimates of the future availability of sustainable biofuel and the implications of these various estimates for the decarbonisation of the shipping sector. Finally it will give stakeholders the opportunity to offer insight and discuss whether sufficient sustainable biofuel will become available to meet the needs of the shipping sector.

The seminar will feature short presentations to frame the discussion, facilitated dialogues to identify issues of stakeholders' concern and focussed discussions to build understanding on the dynamics at play, and whether and how they can be resolved.

Hosted by SSI and facilitated by global sustainability non-profit Forum for the Future, this seminar is the second of a series exploring the sustainability and availability of biofuels plus webinars exploring the key issues that emerge, and a high-profile event at Climate Week New York on September 25, 2019.
