Green Shipping Corridors and Country Case Studies

Ship crosses an ocean

Digital roundtable discussion on green shipping corridors, infrastructure requirements and business opportunities for energy companies as well as ports, and how to build a PtX ecosystem in practice.

Green shipping corridors are shipping routes powered by zero-carbon emissions ships. Designed as cooperation between shippers, ports, governments and energy suppliers, they turn climate ambitions into action. However, without political influence and the establishment of rules and standards between the individual actors on a particular shipping route, they are difficult to implement. So what is needed to make the establishment of a green shipping corridor a reality? What policies can governments use to positively influence it? What are the roles and new business opportunities for ports? And when will the transition to clean shipping be possible?

On July 19, 2023, the webinar on "Green Shipping Corridors and Country Case Studies" organized by the International PtX Hub explored these and other questions. More than 100 participants took part in the first edition of the three-part webinar series, which is jointly organized by Agora Verkehrswende, International PtX Hub and PtX Lab Lausitz.
