Rina inaugurates the Italian committee for decarbonisation of the boating industry
RINA inaugurated the Italian committee for decarbonisation with the participation of the main stakeholders in the boating industry
The certification society RINA, is marking a new path for the protection of our environment with the inauguration of the Italian committee for decarbonisation of the boating industry. This is a program that includes the participation of the main stakeholders in the industry to work together in researching and promoting solutions for alternative energies.
The objective is to reach the targets established by the United Nations on carbon neutrality for the boating industry by 2050. The first step to achieve this is certainly creating dialogue with all those involved in the boating industry. The participation of owners, manufacturers and component operators will therefore have the aim of finding short term solutions in technology, provisions and finances.
RINA’S CHALLENGE TO DECARBONISE THE BOATING INDUSTRY
The Italian committee for decarbonisation can be added to a number of projects promoted by RINA in favour of carbon neutrality. In 2021, the company had already launched committees in Greece, Northern Europe and Asia.
“We have the opportunity to create a new paradigm – says Salvatore D’Amico, Fleet Director of Gruppo D’Amico and chairman of the committee – thanks to solutions that can be immediately applied helping to accelerate the decarbonisation process. We cannot achieve this on our own and cooperation is essential so that the entire industry can benefit.”
Meetings will be organised periodically and will reunite the RINA committee members in other countries, divided into different focus groups depending on the topics. Fuel EU Maritime & ETS (Emission Trading System) will be overseen by Andrea Cosulich, honorary president of Fratelli Cosulich LNG Activities, IMO EEXI, CII & Operational Profiles will be guided by Vincenzo Romeo, Chief Executive officer for Nova Marine Carriers, and Sustainable Finance and Fundings will be presided over by Marco Fiori, chief executive officer for Premuda. In short order a team will also be created for Hydrogen and Ammonia.
