World Ocean Council LNG Marine Fuel Institute enter partnership

23 Sep 2019

The World Ocean Council (WOC) and LNG Marine Fuel Institute (LNG-MFI) have forged a partnership to collaborate in advancing liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a marine fuel, and the research and development of technical standards, regulations and management strategies for LNG in the global shipping trade.

The partnership agreement provides a commitment and framework for the two bodies to collaborate and share knowledge.

WOC is a global, cross-sectoral ocean industry leadership alliance committed to “Corporate Ocean Responsibility”, developed by and for the private sector, with a unique and multi-sectoral approach to address cross-cutting issues affecting ocean sustainable development, science and stewardship of the seas.

WOC will work to bring information, ideas and opportunities to LNG MFI and its members regarding the WOC and industry leadership, collaboration and action in ocean sustainable development, science and stewardship.

“The LNG Marine Fuel Institute is working to decarbonize shipping, fisheries and other ocean industries,” said Paul Holthus, WOC Founding President and CEO.

“As the Global Blue Economy Business ocean business and investment community to engage with LNG MFI to advance the important global fuel economy transition.”

“The WOC engages and brings together leaders from the various ocean industries, including shipping, fossil fuel and gas, fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, renewable energy (wind, wave, tidal), ports, dredging, cables, as well as the maritime legal, financial and insurance communities, and others to collaborate on responsible use of the seas.

“We ensure that the Ocean Business Community’s role in ocean sustainable development is understood by all relevant stakeholders (decision makers, policy makers, intergovernmental bodies etc.).

“The WOC is growing steadily, as an increasing number and range of ocean industry companies from around the world are distinguishing themselves as leaders in “Corporate Ocean Responsibility” by joining the WOC. More broadly, the continually expanding global WOC network includes 35,000+ ocean industry and media stakeholders around the world.”
