The European Sea Ports Organisation (ESPO) is co-organising an event on decarbonisation of shipping as part of the European Shipping Week (ESW).

The event organised in conjunction with the European Community Shipowners' Association (ECSA) will take place in 19 February from 11:00 to 14:00 in Brussels.

ESPO will introduce and moderate a session on ports’ perspective with regard to decarbonisation of shipping where three ports will present their views. The European port sector will be also represented in the panel discussion with shipping industry stakeholders.

EWS, organised by ECSA along with other maritime stakeholders, takes place in Brussels from 17 to 21 February 2020. ESW is a forum for EU stakeholders and policy makers to discuss and exchange on matters related to maritime transport.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
