Copenhagen’s shipping cluster has long been a centre for shipowners and operators, but the city has risen to prominence over the past years as a hub for green maritime tech.

The city also provides a base for cross-industry bodies, such as the Global Maritime Forum and the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, initiatives including the Sea Cargo Charter for bulk shipping and green-focused start-ups such as Zero North, which was originally spun out of Maersk Tankers.

Upcoming carbon regulations plus growing environmental, social and corporate governance pressures, are prompting the need for new thinking.
