Singapore and Rotterdam Collaborate to Cut Shipping Emissions by 20%-30% by 2030

👉The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), the Port of Rotterdam Authority (PoR), and 20 partners in the Green & Digital Shipping Corridor have joined forces to reduce international shipping emissions by 20%-30% by 2030🍀.

This agreement was reached during the third Green Corridor workshop held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The Green & Digital Shipping Corridor, established in August 2022, aims to achieve zero and near-zero emissions shipping on the Rotterdam-Singapore route, with the ultimate goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. The corridor has garnered strong support from global value-chain partners, including shipping companies, port authorities, fuel suppliers, banks, and universities.

Efforts will focus on using zero and near-zero emission fuels in large container vessels, along with operational and digital efficiency. A study led by the Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero-Carbon Shipping has explored various alternative fuels, including hydrogen. Working groups will address topics such as fuel demand, standards, safety, financing, and legislation as part of this initiative.🚢
