Canada is one of the signatory nations on the ‘Clydebank Declaration’ launched at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow. The Declaration supports the installation of at least six green corridors by 2025, that will require support for zero-emission fuels, the infrastructure required for carbon-neutral shipping and regulatory frameworks. The declaration stated, “It is our collective aim to support the establishment of at least 6 green corridors by the middle of this decade, while aiming to scale activity up in the following years, by inter alia supporting the establishment of more routes, longer routes and/or having more ships on the same routes. It is our aspiration to see many more corridors in operation by 2030. We will assess these goals by the middle of this decade, with a view to increasing the number of green corridors.” Signatory nations include Australia, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Denmark, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Republic of Ireland, Japan, Republic of the Marshall Islands, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America. As the name itself suggests, the ‘Clydebank Declaration’ pays tribute to the heritage of the City of Glasgow and the River Clyde where the Declaration was signed.
