The 2018 conference of the International Association of Maritime Economists (IAME) focused on “Blue Growth” and “the Blue Economy“ as a potential driver of sustainable growth. With the organization of the 2018 IAME-conference in Mombasa (Kenya), the African continent as a major vector of this future development was a highly debated topic by the Maritime Economists community. CBS Maritime is happy to have been strongly represented in the debate, providing answers and reflections on some of the questions asked.
Right now the environment is the biggest loser, when our goods travel halfway around the world. CO2, methane and other emissions are among the worst offenders. But with a two-digit million dollar amount from a Canadian council, CBS Maritime is going to help lead a larger global cooperation. The aim is greener shipping.
CBS Maritime is a Business in Society (BiS) Platform at CBS with a focus on value creation in the maritime industries. The platform coordinates the maritime activities and competencies at CBS and aims to develop our maritime research and teaching in close association with the business community.
