The Green Corridor as a Tool to Accelerate Decarbonization
Maritime shipping is the backbone of international trade and carries over 80% of the volume of trade in goods. It also accounts for 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Legal structures to incentivize the transition to sustainable shipping are coming into place. Key stakeholders are looking at ways to build a business case for sustainable maritime transport.
In October 2022, the Port of Gothenburg and the Port of Rotterdam signed a memorandum of understanding for a green corridor by finding ways to stimulate the use of new alternative fuels. What has happened since? Can we learn from best practices taken from existing green corridors? And can maritime green corridors become an important tool to accelerate decarbonization in the maritime transport sector?
Port of Gothenburg and Port of Rotterdam share their insights.
