Increased transport by sea can contribute to increased economic growth and welfare, while reducing negative environmental impacts, number of accidents and energy consumption.
With this belief in mind and with the aim of achieving the European Commission’s vision of a maritime industry without negative impact on air and water, the Zero Vision Tool (ZVT) was developed in 2011.
ZVT is a collaboration method and project platform for a safer, more environmentally and energy efficient transport by sea. Within the platform representatives of industry, academy, agencies and administrations meet to share experiences and find common, workable and sustainable solutions. As of today approximately 130 different organisations from different countries use the ZVT method.
Together we are finding the way forward, working towards the vision of a maritime industry without negative impact on air and water.
