Environmental technologies in focus on World Maritime Day 2022

IMO unites global maritime industry in exploration and celebration of new technologies for greener shipping.


​IMO regulation helps drive innovation in ship design, propulsion and energy-efficient technologies - to achieve greener shipping.

The International Maritime Organization is shining a spotlight on the role of emerging technologies to support a green transition of the maritime sector into a sustainable future. During the World Maritime Day 2022, on 29 September, celebrations will focus on the theme of 'New technologies for greener shipping', providing a platform to showcase inclusive maritime innovation, research and development, and the demonstration and deployment of new technologies. 

In his message on the World Maritime theme, IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim said, "Our theme 'New technologies for greener shipping' opens up a larger conversation about shipping's direction and how technology can be harnessed for a more sustainable future. It also provides an incentive to further examine how digitalization and automation can support shipping. But technological solutions for cleaner, safer and more sustainable shipping must also benefit people. In this regard, the impact on seafarers and other marine personnel, including the need for training must be considered."
