"Maritime Platform" stands for a cross-sectoral, holistic approach to supporting the transport of goods and people in shipping and also in land transport in the 21st century by establishing sustainable, environmentally and climate-friendly propulsion technologies, fuels and other technical measures.
The platform offers a network and forum for companies and associations of the maritime economy, the inland navigation, ports and the logistics sector, as well as the whole of industry and those who have a fundamental interest in the "clean" transport of their goods in terms of their ecological footprint. It also seeks dialogue with environmental organisations, science and the media. It should also help to inform politicians and the public about the possibilities of improved environmental and climate protection for the shipping industry of the future.
The platform will continue to act as a “hinge joint" between politics and the maritime industry and will work together with the players to ensure that shipping is sustainable.
