PORT OF LE HAVRE JOINS 'GETTING TO ZERO' COALITION

Thursday, October 22, 2020 

HAROPA - Port of Le Havre has now joined the 'Getting to Zero' coalition, consisting of more than 90 companies from across maritime and associated sectors, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shipping by at least 50% by 2050, in line with IMO targets.

The Getting to Zero Coalition was launched at the UN Climate Action Summit 2019 as part of a partnership between three intergovernmental organisations (the Global Maritime Forum, Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum) to combat climate change. The members of the coalition are committed to help developing zero-emission ships and fuels by 2030.

Baptiste Maurand, MD HAROPA - Port of Le Havre, said: "We share the ambition to become a positive-energy port. By joining the Getting to Zero Coalition, we intend to actively contribute to the development of ever-cleaner service for our customers and stakeholders of the supply chain".

Membership marks another step in the port's commitment to help customers reduce their own emissions, and underlines the port authority's determination to help reduce the carbon footprint of the maritime industry.
