OUR FUTURE IS DECISIVELY GREEN NOT ONLY FOR ITALY BUT FOR THE WORLD! IT WAS STATED AND CONFIRMED BY ONE OF THE MAJOR ITALIAN SHIPPING GROUPS IN ITALY IN VALENCIA – THE XXIV EUROMED CONVENTION – From Land to Sea.
The XXIV Euro-med Convention international meeting, organized by the Grimaldi Group, was indeed very informative and confirmed the need to work together to achieve the zero emissions goal by 2050.
About 500 representatives from the institutional world, finance, logistics, ports and transport were present.
Focus of the meeting was the decarburization of sea transport, a strategic key factor for the development of the global community!
The CEO Emanuele Grimaldi, in his speech at the opening of the summit, presented a broad overview of the present and future green elements of the first Italian shipping group, also the first player in the “Seas Motorways”in Europe. Besides the fleet expansion plan, an important program of 220 green retrofit services was carried out and included the application of environmentally friendly silicone paints, propulsion optimization devices and the installation of exhaust gas cleaning systems.
Furthermore he specified how essential it is to start producing clean energy and confirmed that the real challenge in the maritime field will be to reduce energy consumption. He invited everyone to invest in this direction. We are, of course, in favor of this.
We participated in the event from October 7 to 10, as major sponsor, there we accepted with pleasure and pride the Grimaldi Excellence Award. This prize is awarded every year by Grimaldi to its business partners. Angelo Minieri, Tefin Sales Department Manager, was in Valencia and received it on behalf of the entire Minieri “Group”. This award confirms and states once again the importance of a precious rapport and solid understanding and partnership that Tefin and the Grimaldi Group have shared over the years.
