About this event

On behalf of the Government of Greenland, the Ministry for Agriculture, Self-Sufficiency, Energy and Environment and Nordic Energy Research invite stakeholders, researchers and other interested to a conference with a focus on CO2 emissions and the maritime industry. A successful green transition is heavily depending on the production and use of green fuels within the maritime industry.

The international community is currently focusing on the development of green solutions designed to ensure the green transition of the co2-heavy industries. In Greenland, there is a particular focus on the maritime industry, which accounts for a significant part of the country’s total CO2 emission.

Preliminary programme - and currently, it includes speakers and headings for the various sections expected to be included in the final content.
