European Shipowners Welcome Council Call For A Competitive Maritime Sector

60

Member States adopted last Friday Council conclusions calling for a maritime industrial strategy to enhance the competitiveness of the sector.

 Industrial strategy

European shipowners welcome the call by Member States on the need for a European maritime industrial strategy that supports the competitiveness of the maritime sector.

European shipowners believe that the green and digital transition of shipping is a great opportunity for Europe to scale up its industrial capacity and enhance the international competitiveness of the European maritime industry.

Net-Zero Industry 

The Net-Zero Industry Act has already recognised clean shipping fuels as Net-Zero technologies, establishing a 40% benchmark for their production in Europe.  An internationally competitive European shipping is the foundation of a maritime industrial strategy that scales up the production of clean fuels and technologies in Europe.
