IN CONVERSATION WITH BAS BUCHNER ABOUT THE FUTURE OF SHIPPING
In 2015, the maritime sector was excluded from the Paris climate agreement. A missed opportunity according to Bas Buchner: ‘We cannot be left behind’. Fortunately, he sees that the sector itself really wants to become greener, cleaner and more sustainable. MARIN wants to encourage and advise in this regard. Zeescheepvaart.nl spoke with Bas Buchner, director of MARIN, about the future of maritime shipping.
LOOK BEYOND THE HORIZON
MARIN’s mission is to make shipping cleaner, smarter and safer and to contribute to sustainable use of the sea. With the strategy ‘Better ships, blue oceans’ we want to look beyond the horizon. We have developed a visualization for this. based on how we will use the sea in 30 to 50 years’ time and what it will look like then, with zero-emission ships playing a major role here.”
