Marine Money is pleased to announce that it has teamed-up with the High Tide Foundation to produce a series of webinars dedicated to supporting the decarbonization of the maritime industry. The webinars will be held monthly throughout 2022 and are free to attend.


“The High Tide Foundation is pleased to support this important opportunity to help bring together and expand the community of marine decarbonization stakeholders and provide a real-time forum for the exchange of new ideas and proven results,” said Marisa de Belloy, Executive Director of the High Tide Foundation.


The international ocean shipping industry is the third largest producer of GHG emissions among the main transportation sectors. It is also the most difficult to abate. The objective of The High Tide Series is to disseminate cutting edge information and data among stakeholders, including shipowners, vessel charterers, government regulators, underwriters, financiers, NGOs, funders, tech/infrastructure solutions and investors,” said Matt McCleery, president of Marine Money.




Monthly Topics

February: Poseidon Principles – Insights and Implications from the Year 2 Data

In this session, we review recently released emissions data generated by vessels in the portfolios of the world’s largest commercial shipping banks and discuss what they mean for borrowers, lenders, and potential new signatories. March: Tackling Methane Slip when using LNG for Shipping

Measuring, monitoring, reporting and the development of standards are foundational elements in the effort to decarbonize the maritime industries. Nowhere is that more critical than with LNG, a transition fuel with significant GHG emissions.

April: Increasing the Impact of Carbon Offsets in the Shipping Industry

A primer and update on the carbon offset market and suggestions for how the shipping industry and most effectively use carbon credits.

May: The Role of Marine Insurance in Decarbonization

The Poseidon Principles for Marine Insurance represent an opportunity for the marine insurance industry to support the drive to get to net-zero. But how will the economics play out?

June: Clydebank Clydebank, the concept of “green corridors,” provides opportunistic shipowners, investors, port, and terminals not only a chance to make a positive environmental impact but to materially participate in major government-backed infrastructure projects. July: Digital Technology & the Importance of Increasing Efficiency

Decarbonization will rely on the collection and sharing of data, but this will require a re-thinking of the traditional commercial relationship between shipper, operator, owner, port and logistics chain.

August: Offshore Wind

There is no question that Offshore Wind will be a critical source of renewable energy, but the opportunity for the maritime industry is evolving in real time. September: Retrofits

As the massive global search and build-out of new clean fuels progresses, the existing commercial fleet will need to take actions now to remain compliant and retain value. Retrofits are the answer.

October: Leveraging Associations

There are a large number of industry associations working on marine decarbonization, but communication, coordination and the development of best practices are critical in order to optimize the pathway to marine decarbonization.

November: The Role and Opportunities for Investors in Marine Decarbonization

Decarbonization of the maritime industry represents a once in a generation investment opportunity. In this session, we explore the funding requirements from VC to long term charter.
