Getting to Zero Coalition: HPA joins emission-free deepsea shipping initiative

Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) will forthwith play an active part in the Getting to Zero Coalition. With a membership now of over 90 companies from all segments of the maritime sector, this global initiative champions international decarbonization. It aims to develop emission-free, and at the same time commercially viable, vessels by 2030. 
Thanks to this coalition of all those involved in the maritime transport chain – from ship financing to building and operation, to ports and freight companies – the project has the potential to develop a timely and marketable solution for CO2-free shipping. 
The Getting to Zero Coalition has been promoted by the Global Maritime Forum, Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum. With the support of leading governments and inter-governmental organizations, the alliance was first announced on 23 September 2019, during the United Nations climate summit in New York.
Cooperating in the Getting to Zero Coalition is just one of numerous measures adopted by the HPA to reduce emissions in the port. As a member of the Clean Marine Fuels Working Group of the IAPH - International Association of Ports and Harbors, HPA has for example already been working for several years on developing and experimenting with safe decarbonization of fuels in the marine sector.
