SHOC Conference: Carbon free shipping and shipping carbon – contracts in context

Konference — Carbon emission remains an obstacle to overcome on the way to green transition in shipping. The 'green drafting' of shipping contracts is a significant tool to tackle this. Accordingly, the conference focuses on the issues concerning carbon initiatives from a contract law perspective.


Date & Time:

University of Copenhagen, Faculty of Law, Conference/flex room, ground floor, room 8A.0.57, South Campus, Njalsgade 76, DK-2300 Copenhagen S

Hosted by:
Shipping and Ocean Law Research Group (SHOC) and Centre for Private Governance (CEPRI)



The green transition is affecting all actors in the shipping industry. The main challenge is to reduce carbon emissions and this challenge has been taken up through regulatory initiatives both at the EU level and at the international level. The conference focuses on the implementation of these initiatives at the contractual level, i.e. adaption of charter parties to comply with the EEXI (Energy Efficiency Existing Ship Index) and the CII (Carbon Intensity Index) and the proposed extension of the EU Emission Trading System (ETS) to cover also the maritime sector. The conference also deals with derived issues on ocean carbon storage and contracts for the shipment of carbon.
