Sustainable shipping

Shipping at EUSBSR a true pleasure

See the mini-video and the full Main Session 4 with Swedish Minister for Infrastructure Anna Johansson, Finnish Minister of Transport & Communications Anne Berner, Niclas Mårtensson CEO Stena Line, Jan Hanses CEO Viking Line, Erik Fridell Professor IVL, and Carl Carlsson CEO ZVT - the lifted issues then are now realised one by one.

ZVT pledge to participate in the UN network;

a. when partnerships on sustainability and strive towards vision zero within the maritime arena are discussed, b. when maritime participants like support as they implement their sustainability efforts, and c. offer the ZVT method and sharing of stakeholders’ lessons learned when so sees fit.

The ZVT PPP method

Increased transport by sea can contribute to increased economic growth & welfare, while reducing negative environmental & climate impacts, number of accidents & energy consumption. With that in mind the Zero Vision Tool method was developed in 2011. Today representatives from over 160 different organisations from the industry, academy, agencies & administrations meet to share experiences & find common workable sustainable solutions.

Towards a new normal

Right now we are at step four in our strive towards a new normal where green investments can be, and are, the natural choice. To create the tipping point we need different finacial mechanisms such as risk sharing instruments and Pilot grants to mention a few.

The four arrows working together

When describing how ZVT finds the way forward, “the four arrows” need to work together, three pointing up; increasing economic growth, welfare and transport at sea, and one pointing down; reducing negative environmental impact, accidents and energy consumption.

  • Interviews with stakeholders
    Why not listen to the interviews with different stakeholders discussing climate, environment, finacial issues and transport at sea. Some of the interviews are now two years old - have something changed since then?
