“Global challenges with Danish opportunities”

Bo Cerup-Simonsen, Danish Shipowners’ Association: The international shipping industry faces a decade of new and very big challenges demanding intelligent, innovative and technological solutions. Denmark is in a good position to win the global market.

The shipping industry is the life nerve of world trade. Furthermore, as a means of transportation it is often by far the cheapest and the most environmentally friendly. It is not likely that the shipping industry will be challenged on these leading positions but authorities, markets and businesses have set new targets concerning climate and environmentally friendly politics, security and social responsibility.

This makes it necessary for the shipping industry to further focus on energy efficiency, environment and security when improving the vessels. For this to happen, new regulations have to be cost-efficient for society, new alternative solutions will have to be developed and offered on the market and the right solutions will be picked and implemented. Today it is unclear which solutions will win which makes the changes difficult to handle and difficult to handle for both shipping companies and suppliers of services and products.
