Le Havre joins carbon-cutting coalition

[ October 21, 2020   //   ]

Haropa – Port of Le Havre – has joined the Getting to Zero Coalition, launched at the United Nations Climate Action Summit 2019 as part of a partnership with the Global Maritime Forum, Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum to combat climate change.

It aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shipping by at least 50% by 2050. To reach this goal and to make the transition to full decarbonisation possible, coalition members are committed to help developing zero-emission ships and fuels by 2030.

Haropa joins more than 90 companies from across maritime, energy and finance sectors in the coalition.

Managing director Baptiste Maurand commented: “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.”
