GreenTech 2017 – Final program

Green Marine’s 10th annual conference took place at the Hyatt Pier Sixty Six Hotel, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from Tuesday, May 30th to Thursday, June 1st

Sustainability was put forward in many great ways: from the opening notes by Heike Deggim, the International Maritime Organization’s senior deputy director of the Sub-Division for Protective Measures of the Marine Environment Division, to the final cruise event where attendees obtained a closer look at the port’s container, bulk and cruise facilities, as well as its initiatives to mitigate environmental impacts on Florida’s unique ecosystems and marine mammals such as manatees.

As always, GreenTech 2017 addressed numerous other issues, all directly linked to sustainable shipping from clean ship innovation to underwater noise, air emissions, LNG, community resilience, port development mitigation, and environmental leadership. The first ever session devoted to the cruise industry – prompted by Fort Lauderdale’s proximity to Port Everglades ranked among the world’s top three cruise ports – also proved to generated extensive interest and keen discussion.
