Port cities are key global players
Ports connect cities across the world through trade and innovation. Ports and cities have the unique ability to act together on climate change, especially in their collective power to advance and accelerate the deployment of zero-emission technologies and solutions through joint procurement commitments and policies. By working together, cities and ports can enable zero-emission solutions at ports, that reduce emissions from transport and supply chains far beyond the port area.
This session will focus on the topic of how the public sector can successfully engage and incentivize the private sector through clear procurement strategy, and creative financing mechanisms to enable and support shipping decarbonization.
We will discuss the necessary partnerships that can be put to work to enable decarbonization across the entire value chain. We will also explore the potential of these collective efforts to facilitate the development of green shipping corridors between cities and their ports.
