Since the start of the year, the maritime industry has been evaluating opportunities for voice at the UNFCC event being held in Glasgow. World leaders have flown in, conversations have been had, and many sectors have been the focus of keen attention.

This Lloyd's Register and Maritime London webinar, moderated by Jos Standerwick, Chief Executive of Maritime London, assessed the impact of COP26 outcomes ahead of MEPC77, the efficacy of shipping to lobby policymakers and what may happen next.
