Three Port of Gothenburg projects for a green transformation of shipping will constitute Sweden’s contribution to the international initiative Green Shipping Challenge (GSC).
All three of Sweden’s commitments to the challenge involve the Port of Gothenburg.
The first concerns the development of a green corridor between Sweden and Belgium.
The second is an industry-wide collaboration that will make Gothenburg’s port Europe’s first hub for green electrofuel.
The third commitment concerns the cooperation on a green corridor between the Port of Gothenburg and the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
“We are proud to be able to contribute to Sweden’s commitments at COP27 with concrete projects that lead to actual emission reduction, and which can also show the way for other ports,” said Edvard Molitor, Head of International Public Affairs and Sustainability at the Gothenburg Port Authority.
After COP26 in Glasgow, the US launched the initiative for the Green Shipping Challenge (GSC) encouraging concrete commitments across the international shipping sector to reach the 1.5 degree target.
“The Port of Gothenburg has been conducting a very ambitious climate work for many years, and it is gratifying that we can now put even more of this into practice by creating new green corridors based on alternative fuels for shipping that significantly reduce emissions,” added Edvard Molitor.
