Sweden has joined the Green Shipping Challenge initiative, which is led by the US and Norway and earlier this week was launched at the COP27 climate summit.

As the Swedish Minister of Infrastructure and Housing Andreas Carlson said in an official statement that “it is important for the climate transition to reduce emissions from shipping”, adding that “Swedish shipping is already far ahead in the transition and this initiative gives Swedish companies the opportunity to compete and contribute to the global transition”.

After COP26 in Glasgow, the US took the initiative for the Green Shipping Challenge, which encourages countries and other actors to present concrete commitments, so that the international shipping sector can contribute to reaching the 1.5-degree target. The Green Shipping Challenge was launched at COP27 in Sharm-el-Sheikh.

Three Port of Gothenburg projects for a green transformation of shipping have been selected by the Swedish government to constitute Sweden’s contribution to the international initiative Green Shipping Challenge.

All of these are collaborations involving the Port of Gothenburg. The first concerns the development of a green corridor between Sweden and Belgium. The second is an industry-wide collaboration that will make the Port of Gothenburg Europe’s first hub for green electrofuel. The third commitment concerns the cooperation on a green corridor between the Port of Gothenburg and the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

It is worth mentioning, that Sweden has signed the declaration on zero emissions from shipping by 2050.
