Port of Le Havre joins Getting to Zero Coalition

The French port has joined the cross-industry coalition which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shipping by at least 50% by 2050.

Launched at the United Nations Climate Action Summit 2019, as part of a partnership between the Global Maritime Forum, Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum, the Getting to Zero Coalition includes more than 90 companies from across maritime, energy and finance sectors.

In order to achieve its GHG emissions target, the Getting to Zero Coalition is committed to help developing zero-emission ships and fuels by 2030.

‘We share the ambition to become a positive-energy port,’ said Port of Le Havre. ‘By joining the Getting to Zero Coalition, we intend to actively contribute to the development of ever-cleaner service for our customers and stakeholders of the supply chain.’

As previously reported, in August, the Getting to Zero coalition identified 66 zero-emission pilots and demonstration projects in the shipping industry.
