A blueprint for assessing the feasibility of green shipping corridors has been jointly developed by the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping with consultants McKinsey & Co.

The 100-page document provides a step-by-step guide to demonstrating the feasibility of and designing green corridors.

Establishing green shipping corridors, where vessels can run on alternative fuels on routes from one place to another, will be an essential step to decarbonising shipping, the centre said, but “there is still limited knowledge on how to take green corridor concepts from ideas to implementation”.
