Sustainable shipping

Welcome

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.

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.
