Sustainable shipping


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 120 different organisations from the industry, academy, agencies & administrations meet to share experiences & find common workable sustainable solutions.
