The North Pacific Green Corridor Consortium (NPGCC), comprised of industry leaders from North America, Asia, and Europe, proposes to decarbonize commodity transportation between these regions. The consortium aims to create a green trade corridor facilitating the environmentally conscious transit of agricultural products, metal concentrates, and steelmaking coal. Founding members are CN Rail, Mitsubishi Canada Ltd., Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, NYK Bulk & Projects Carriers, Oldendorff Carriers, Prince Rupert Port Authority, Teck Resources Limited (Teck), Trigon Pacific Terminals, and the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority.  The NPGCC’s mission is to expedite the decarbonization of the commodity value chain between Canada, Japan and South Korea and will explore innovative solutions like low carbon fuels and advanced propulsion technologies to cut carbon emissions across the value chain. Open to new members, the NPGCC is set to be a pivotal platform for promoting sustainable practices and enhancing commercial ties through shared decarbonization goals. Activities will include optimizing energy use, developing necessary green infrastructure, and advocating for collective progress toward reduced emissions.
