A new agreement between the Port of Gothenburg and the Port of Rotterdam pledges to establish a Green Corridor between the two cities, seeking to put a framework in place for collaboration on alternative fuels and reducing carbon emissions.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in the presence of both the Swedish and Dutch royal families.
It is intended that the corridor will become part of the European Green Corridors Network, set up in March 2022 by the Maersk McKinney Moller Centre for Zero-Carbon Shipping.
Allard Castelein, Chief Executive of the Port of Rotterdam said: “This Green Corridor initiative is part of our ongoing efforts to bring together parties across the supply chain to help realise more sustainable shipping in support of the Paris Agreement.”
Elvir Dzanic, Chief Executive of the Gothenburg Port Authority added: “By fulfilling the pledges of the Clydebank Declaration from COP26 through green corridors, we can now present a more distinct path towards the decarbonisation of shipping.”
