Port of Le Havre joins the "Getting to Zero" coalition

The “Getting to Zero Coalition” was launched at the United Nations Climate Action Summit 2019 as part of a partnership between three intergovernmental organisations (the Global Maritime Forum, Friends of Ocean Action and the World Economic Forum) to combat climate change.

It aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from shipping by at least 50% by 2050* (compared to 2008 levels) . To reach this goal and to make the transition to full decarbonisation possible, the members of this coalition are committed to help developing zero-emission ships and fuels by 2030.

HAROPA - Port of Le Havre is now one of the coalition members alongside more than 90 companies from across maritime, energy and finance sectors.

"We share the ambition to become a positive-energy port. By joining the Getting to Zero Coalition, we intend to actively contribute to the development of ever-cleaner service for our customers and stakeholders of the supply chain".

Baptiste Maurand, Managing Director HAROPA - Port of Le Havre.

This membership marks another step in the port's commitment to help its customers reduce their own emissions. Moreover, it underlines the determination of HAROPA - Ports to reduce the carbon footprint of the maritime industry.
