The time has come for transport on the sea as well: the whole world needs to transition to green shipping as soon as possible.
The Norwegian government recently announced an action plan for green shipping, where it states that the goal is to cut emissions from domestic maritime transport and fishery in half by 2030. Furthermore, their ambition is to stimulate the development of zero-emission and low-emission transportation solutions in all vessel categories.
– Norway must find cost effective ways of carrying out the transformation process and at the same time ensure that it provides growth opportunities for the Norwegian economy and boosts Norwegian exports of green solutions. Renewal of the Norwegian shipping sector will be an important driver of this process, the government states in their action plan.
