Monday 13 September - Transparency in Bunkering Forum

Billed as the first in-person bunkering event since lockdown, Petrospot’s Transparency in Bunkering Forum will take place on 13 September, the first day of London International Shipping Week.

The much-anticipated ‘live’ event will take place at the offices of leading maritime law firm Norton Rose Fulbright.

With the headline theme of transparency, the Forum will examine the highly competitive, low margin business of bunkering, first from an operational viewpoint, looking at bunker licensing, mass flow metering, fuel quality and pricing; and then from a commercial and financial viewpoint, looking at due diligence, banking, credit lines, credit, and trade insurance.

We will feature on a panel discussion with industry thought leaders representing ExxonMobil, Island Oil, Shipping Strategy, Markel International, S&P Global Platts, Propeller Fuels, Awyr Las, the International Bunker Industry Association and the Marine Fuels Alliance.

Usman Muhammad, LR’s Product Manager - Fuel Advisory, will join this Forum. To register for this event, please click here

Wednesday 15 September - Is Shipping Ready for the Outcomes of COP26?

Nick Brown, LR's CEO, will be speaking during the main LISW conference, Is Shipping Ready for the Outcomes of COP26? 

Event overview

As the world starts to move out of the pandemic and the economic turmoil it has left in its wake, all eyes are on climate change and the important discussions to be had during COP26.

The people coming to Glasgow to hammer out the international strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions will have full focus on the UN’s global sustainability goals and targets, but a limited understanding of the essential services shipping provides to the world.

Nevertheless, they will draft the multilateral agreements on measures to decarbonise shipping and other sectors. Will those agreements be compatible with the necessity of nation states to grow their economies and do regulators understand the consequences to their economies? And will shipping be able to service those ambitions while dealing
with everything from climate-aligned finance, politically motivated policy and the technological challenges of creating a sustainable, carbon free and economically viable future.

Thursday 16 September - The Voyage to Decarbonisation, Sustainable Shipping Initiative Roundtable & Virtual Mental Health in Maritime Webinar


Mark Darley, LR's Marine and Offshore Director, will be joining the UK Chamber of Shipping's panel discussion, The Voyage to Decarbonisation.

This event will discuss how shipping companies can navigate the most disruptive period in shipping history and head toward a sustainable low carbon shipping future. The event will feature a thought-provoking debate around the IMO short-term measures, EU policy and the pitfalls of the IMO’s, carbon pricing, reforming of the shipping regulation and the evolving role of the classification societies to support this transition.

Shipping Minister Robert Courts will open the event with a short speech.

Katharine Palmer, LR’s Global Sustainability Manager, will discuss sustainability criteria in shipping at a Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI) roundtable.

Following the publication of the SSI’s report outlining the sustainability criteria to be considered for zero and low carbon marine fuels, this Roundtable will be a small, intimate discussion around next steps in bringing the sustainability and lifecycle emissions of marine fuels to the forefront of the discussions around decarbonisation, which will determine which fuels we use, develop, and invest in.


Stephanie McLay, LR’s Senior Human Factors Consultant, is speaking at the virtual Mental Health in Maritime Webinar: Breaking Down Stigma. Hosted by the Mental Health in Maritime Network, this Lunch and Learn will facilitate discussions on ways to break down stigma of mental health across the maritime sector.
