Clean Maritime Day package sets UK on course to make green shipping a reality and level up coastal communities.

UK transport secretary Mark Harper recently unveiled a new package of clean maritime measures to tackle the biggest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions in the country’s transport sector. Following the Clydebank Declaration for Green Shipping Corridors at COP26, a £1.5-million International Green Corridor Fund has been launched, in collaboration with international partners, including Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands, to make end-to-end green shipping a reality. Announced during the London International Shipping Week, the pot will part-fund feasibility studies, with further match-funding from international partners and the industry, to explore how to bring to life the UK government’s commitment to decarbonise its international shipping lanes, an official release said. This work will go hand in hand with the new Clean Maritime Research Hub, which will put the United Kingdom in a leading position in maritime decarbonisation, creating jobs across UK academia and producing research that not only supports green economic growth but enables businesses across the UK maritime sector to get a head start in using clean technologies.

      Green shipping will have a positive impact on climate and this ideology is one of the best ways to change the narrative
