The Green Shipping Corridor Implementation Plan outlines a partnership between ports, carriers, and cargo owners to accelerate emissions reductions on one of the world’s busiest container shipping routes across the Pacific Ocean. The plan involves deploying reduced or zero-lifecycle carbon-capable ships on the corridor by 2025 and demonstrating the feasibility of deploying the world’s first zero-lifecycle carbon emission container ships by 2030. The partnership includes the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Shanghai, as well as carrier partners like CMA CGM, COSCO Shipping Lines, Maersk, and ONE. The plan aims to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality by expanding the use of shore power and supporting clean marine fuel infrastructure, among other measures.
