Guest speakers from KPMG and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, Getting to Zero Coalition of the Global Maritime Forum, Basque Centre for Climate Change, Open Ocean Robotics, Vard Engineering and Duke University, are confirmed to present alongside members of IMCA’s Environmental Sustainability Committee.

A series of interactive discussions, facilitated by the committee, will coincide with each session to stimulate thinking around the application of the code across organisations of all sizes within the industry.
IMCA’s CEO, Allen Leatt explained: "It has been four months since we launched our Recommended Code of Practice on Environmental Sustainability, and there is much work to do to put this Code into practice across the industries we serve. This event is a step towards concerted action, and I am looking forward to speaking alongside such a fantastic line-up of speakers across a broad spectrum of key environmental issues that are crucial for our industry to address.”
Nadine Robinson, IMCA’s technical expert in environmental sustainability, added: "Our aim is to enlighten, engage and inspire through interaction with leading experts to ensure alignment with global practice and thinking. We believe this event will be of significant value to IMCA members, environmental sustainability professionals, operational decision-makers, management, and anyone with a keen interest in the area and the energy transition.”
