Data & Digitalization


Speaker: Aditya Trivedi

Marsoft’s GreenScreen program provides a new and significant incentive for shipowners to invest in one or more retrofits that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Proceeds from the first issuance and sales of carbon credits under the revised methodology ‘Programme for Retrofit Energy Efficiency Measures in Shipping’ are anticipated to be delivered to shipowners before the end of 2023.

In addition to industry-wide recognition, the Gold Standard – the preeminent global carbon registry – has accepted Marsoft’s GreenScreen-based methodology as the basis for issuing carbon credits for investments that reduce CO2 emissions from ships.

Marsoft is committed to working towards a more sustainable world, and to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular goal 13 Climate Action. Marsoft is a founding member of the Blue Sky Maritime Coalition, whose mission is to accelerate the decarbonization of North American waterborne trade.

Speaker: Graeme Somerville-Ryan 

 Eyesea was founded on the idea that the maritime industry, mariners, recreational sailors, and the public all want the best for the ocean. We all understand maritime pollution is a problem – a problem that, at times, is pictured as being too large to solve or too far away to get involved. What can one person do? 

Year one was about proof of concept – 120,000 images

Collected and overwhelming support from the maritime community, tech companies, and volunteers all over the world. But this data also showed us we needed to revise our strategy and technology outcomes. 


Eyesea has begun the development of a pollution data management system. This will enable communities, companies, ports, and authorities to make use of tech such as computer vision, machine learning and AI, satellite spectometry, smart communications, and even route planning to better manage and recover pollution.
