Port Esbjerg and 155 players demand political action to achieve fossil-free shipping by 2050

“We must act now to achieve the green transition of shipping.” This is the clear message from Port Esbjerg and 155 of the world’s largest players from the entire maritime value chain that have come together to sign a declaration demanding political action and investments in research and in green energy and infrastructure with a view to making shipping fossil-free by 2050.

The call to political action is coordinated by the Getting to Zero Coalition within the framework of the Global Maritime Forum, and it comes in advance of the crucial climate negotiations at COP26 in Glasgow in November. As part of the initiative, Port Esbjerg and the other signatories have prepared a catalogue of measures and objectives which the industry has already started to implement.

“Although great responsibility rests with the players of the industry, there’s a need for concrete plans and major government investments,” explains Port Esbjerg CEO Dennis Jul Pedersen and he continues:

“We’re proud to join forces with the largest players in the industry, suggesting solutions to drive the green transition of shipping. If we’re to succeed, it’s not enough that we set individual ambitious targets for the transition of our activities. We also need common goals and investments in infrastructure, if there’s to be a realistic prospect of a fossil-free future.”

As Europe’s largest originating port for components to the wind industry, the port of Esbjerg not only contributes as an important link in the green transition of the European energy sector, it also takes crucial steps towards greater sustainability in its own activities, and the target has been set for the port to be climate-neutral by 2030. This is one of the most ambitious goals included in the joint catalogue produced by the Getting to Zero Coalition.
