About Resilient, Net-Zero-Emissions Maritime Hubs

The maritime sector accounts for 90 per cent of global trade and 2.2 per cent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions – a figure projected to increase threefold by 2050. By working with partners on land (ports) and sea (the shipping industry) we can achieve our ambition to create a low carbon, circular and inclusive maritime sector.

Early partners include the Port of Valencia (through our partner Valencia Port Foundation), the Port of Piraeus (through Athena) and the Cyprus Deputy Ministry of Shipping (through our partners Chrysalis Leap, Cyprus University of Technology and Cyprus Energy Agency).
