Green Shipping Corridor Resources

Forming a green shipping corridor is a process that involves multiple stakeholders. Provided below are documents, reports, and other resources that can help you navigate this process, and more quickly develop and deploy green shipping corridors.

The documents and resources below are provided by Zero-emission Shipping Mission members and external affiliates. Some of these resources can help you complete impact analyses, find and develop partnerships, navigate complex relationships across the maritime value chain, and more.

The First Wave First movers across the maritime and energy sectors must come together in commercial-scale demonstration projects. Such projects will be vital in improving and scaling technologies, reducing cost, as well as developing new business models and collaborations that can share risks and opportunities across the value chain. As shown in this report, there are many barriers to the early adoption of zero-emission technologies from a technical, regulatory, and economic perspective. More importantly, the report shows that these barriers can be reduced and overcome through collaboration, the use of de-risking mechanisms, public-private partnerships, and the ability to pass on the cost of green shipping to the end consumer.

First Movers in Shipping’s Decarbonisation This report sets out a framework to help in converting ambition into actions. The framework allows a detailed comparison of different transition strategies across the entire supply chain (from fuel production to its use onboard vessels). The framework can be applied to specific fleet and this analysis has used a case study of hypothetical first movers. The example chosen is a fleet of containership feeders operating in Asia.

Port Energy Supply for Green Shipping Corridors This report explores the opportunities and challenges associated with developing infrastructure for alternative fuels, through a case study of a green shipping triangle in the Atlantic. We do this by considering this global challenge at an initial project scale, considering how demand for alternative fuels could grow at a port level to realise ambitious climate action. We explore the infrastructure required for low carbon fuel supply, demonstrating the significant scale required even for initial projects, highlighting the need for an integrated approach to their development. We frame how a Total Value approach to these initial projects can unlock significant co-benefits, strengthening their case for investment.

Green Corridors: Feasibility Phase Blueprint The blueprint provides an approach to designing and demonstrating the feasibility of green corridors. It is intended to serve as a ready-to-use guide for any stakeholder involved in green corridors for decarbonizing shipping and includes 80+ off-the-shelf pages outlining methodology, analysis, and illustrative templates at each step of the value chain and across the ecosystem. The guide is relevant to all stakeholders that wish to engage in green corridors. It can be used by individual stakeholders assessing feasibility at single steps of the supply chain or by a consortium and stakeholder collaborations addressing feasibility across the supply chain and ecosystem.

The Maritime Fleet of the USA: The Current Status and Potential for the Future n order to meet the targets set by the Paris Agreement and declarations by the current United States administration, an increase in energy efficiency and an urgent shifting towards scalable zero emission fuels(SZEFs)is required. The US fleet is an example of a shipping fleet that has vast untapped potential forbecoming a leaderinthe decarbonisation of shipping. This report takes a data-centric approach, combined with a rich understanding of the transition pathway this sector iscurrently on, to identify: Why this is now a key moment in time for the US to act decisively on decarbonising US shipping; How the US fleet can be decarbonised; Where around the US the scale of opportunity lies, and what this implies for action and next steps.
