SN – Innovate to Zero – Digitalisation advancing decarbonisation of maritime trade

B2b Matchmaking (2)



The maritime industry is under immense pressure to reduce carbon emissions and meet decarbonization targets to address climate change. However, many players are yet to adopt the technologies available for accurate measurement, reporting, and emission reduction. Digitalization can offer numerous solutions, including real-time monitoring and optimization, automation, and efficient logistics.

Join us at our upcoming matchmaking event, where startups can connect with industry players and investors, pitch their ideas, and explore potential partnerships and investment opportunities. The event will include notable industrial players, such as ABB, BW Group, Kongsberg, Odfjell, and DNV, among others. Several promising startups from the vibrant PIER71TM environment and others, such as Eco Worth-Tech, eLSA, eyegauge, Green Cop, Magic port, Moorio and Pyxis, have also confirmed their participation.

Don’t miss out on the chance to contribute to the growth and development of innovative digital solutions that can address the shipping industry’s challenges. The event is free of charge, and to express your interest, email

We would like to extend a special thanks to our partners, including The Norwegian Embassy, Innovation Norway, SNCC, EuroCham, and especially PIER71TM , for making this important event possible. We are also grateful to our sponsors, ABB, DNV, StormGeo, Kongsberg, and Wilhelmsen, for their invaluable support.
