Agenda update: The RSB Ports Meeting


The RSB Ports Meeting – in partnership with Maersk, ClimateWorks Foundation, Copenhagen Airports and Topsoe – is less than a month away, and we are thrilled to update you with our latest agenda!

Exclusive to RSB members and invited stakeholders, the RSB Ports Meeting will convene key stakeholders from across industry and civil society for a 2-day meeting on issues that are at the frontline of sustainability conversations relating to aviation and maritime decarbonisation.

For further details , see below…



Day 1 : 22nd March

The first day will be hosted at the Maersk Headquarters, where we’ll dive into the hot topics of Power-to-X and book and claim. before heading over to Copenhagen’s famous Admiral Hotel for networking drinks.

    • Sustainable goods are being increasingly demanded but cannot always access them via existing supply chain networks. Book and claim is chain-of-custody solution, and RSB is currently piloting an approach to this. In this session, we’ll bring participants up to speed with the RSB Book & Claim Programme and delve into the key topic of additionality. Participants will hear from a diverse set of stakeholders on how we can ensure that market mechanisms like book and claim deliver climate impact, and learn about how RSB has translated this approach into a standard soon to be launched across the aviation and marine sectors. The session will also include a preview of the RSB Book & Claim Registry and launch the newly established RSB Member Book & Claim Platform.
    • Confirmed speakers include: Adam Klauber (World Energy)Noelle Fröhlich (Deutsche Post DHL Group), Miguel Ruiz (SCS Global Services), Fabio Luttazi (Etihad Airways), Julia Fidler (Microsoft Corporation), Marieke Verhoeven (Shell) – more to be added soon.

The meeting will be exclusively available to RSB members who have signed up as participants of the platform. The goals will be: to create a common understanding of potential impact areas for RSB and the platform; to understand the most important policy and regulatory topics impacting the development of SMF, with a focus on carbon and sustainability aspects; and to develop workstreams and outputs for the platform activities in 2023/24.

The goals will be: to encourage a collaborative network and a cross-sectoral platform that creates a common understanding of the challenges and next steps for the aviation sector; to consolidate RSB’s role as an organisation that supports airports in their pathway to sustainability; to discuss the main topics around aviation sector relating to airports’ role in the SAF value chain, including non-CO₂ effects; and to gather inputs for workstreams and outputs of platform activities in 2023/24.
