The Maritime Fuel Supply Dialogues, an initiative of the Lloyd’s Register (LR) Maritime Decarbonisation Hub, aims to unlock the potential for clean and sustainable maritime fuels through dialogue and collaboration amongst energy and transport ministries across Asia Pacific and Africa. The Hub is a joint initiative between Lloyd’s Register and Lloyd’s Register Foundation.

Launched on April 16th, 2024, through a roundtable hosted by the Ocean Stewardship Coalition of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in partnership with LR Maritime Decarbonisation Hub, the initiative focuses on how to drive regional green hydrogen fuel supply development at scale to support maritime decarbonisation across the Indian and Pacific Ocean.

Recognising the value of open exchange, participating ministries have committed to further communication and collaboration through future dialogues through the Maritime Fuel Supply Dialogues at the next roundtable meeting in September, as a pre-cursor to COP29.
