In the wake of its official opening, the Vancouver Maritime Centre for Climate (VMCC) has announced the launch of Operation Flagship. Operation Flagship will be at the heart of VMCC’s services and will help facilitate the provision of climate solution pilots and accelerate the implementation and/or adoption of emission reduction solutions. The purpose of these pilot projects is to help ship owners, operators, ports & terminals as well as the supporting land-based infrastructure source innovative and sustainable solutions suited to their operating profile to help them to reduce their GHG emissions or to decarbonize completely. VMCC has launched Operation Flagship with funding from Environment and Climate Change Canada, in collaboration with Det Norsk Veritas (DNV), a Norwegian risk management company, as well as locally based, Foresight Canada, a clean-tech accelerator, and Brightspot Climate, a climate change, and energy consultant. Innovators are encouraged to apply online via VMCC’s website.
