The municipality of Oslo and the Port of Oslo have a plan to become the world’s first emission-free port. Emissions in the port will fall 85% by 2030 and gradually continue until it reaches zero-emissions.

The Port of Oslo has also started the phasing in of emissions-free solutions.

It is enthusiastic about working alongside the Bellona Foundation and exchanging ideas and solutions with Bellona’s network of environmental experts and organizations. Maritime transport and urban ports are crucial in reducing the world’s greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector

stated chairman Roger Schjerva.

The ports are very important to the organization of green shipping and more efficient transport systems. A collaboration with the Port of Oslo could open up the potential to look more closely at how to increase the electrification of the maritime sector and the transfer of goods from road to sea.

The solutions we use in the Port of Oslo and the knowledge gained from them, must be shared nationally and internationally, so that they can be quickly scaled up

concluded Frederic Hauge, Founder & CEO of Bellona.
