Cop26 : Clydebank Declaration for Green Shipping Corridors
Kind: ICD What's New  Organization: Department of International Cooperation  Publish Date: 2021-11-29 16:20
More than 20 countries around the world including the U.K., U.S., Japan, Canada, Sweden and the Netherlands have signed the Clydebank Declaration to support the establishment of at least 6 green-corridor zero-emission maritime routes between two or more ports by the middle of this decade, with the hope of seeing many more such corridors in operation by 2030.

The declaration did not specify how that would be achieved, saying only that it would require partnerships between ports and operators to accelerate the decarbonization of the sector and its fuel supply.

About 90% of the world's traded goods travel by sea, and shipping accounts for about 3% of global emissions.

U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg called the declaration "a big step forward...for collective action."
