Initiatives to develop green shipping corridors involving the US, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore and the UK are emerging from discussions around the COP27 climate change talks in Egypt.

The UK Department for Transport said the country will join forces with the US, Norway and the Netherlands to roll out end-to-end decarbonised routes.

Separately, the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach said they have begun discussions to establish a green and digital shipping corridor between Singapore and the San Pedro Bay port complex.
