Ports commit to extend climate action program

Chief executives and leaders of 12 major ports in the World Port Climate Action Program (WPCAP) have agreed to extend their cooperation with a new focus on shore power, new fuels and green shipping corridors.

The agreement reached at a meeting in Rotterdam on the occasion of the first five years of the program will see work continued toward faster adoption of shore power at ports, helping to reduce emissions of CO2 and pollutants while ships are at berth.
