Hear from Katrina Ross, Policy Director, Commercial and Governance, UK Chamber of Shipping at Coastlink 2024 to hear how collaboration is key to the success of green corridors.


Katrina will join the Coastlink Conference on day one - 24 April - for the highly anticipated panel discussion ‘Green corridors – collaboration to drive sustainable growth’.

Katrina will represent the UK Chamber of Shipping, a key trade association and voice of the UK shipping industry who work to unite, promote and champion an environment for shipping in the UK to thrive, helping to deliver a greener world and a more prosperous nation.

Short-sea green corridors look increasingly likely to lead the way in enabling vital cooperation for the maritime industry’s net zero transition. It’s important that such green corridors remain technologically neutral, so that they are not seen to pre-maturely either select winners or disregard transitional solutions. This approach is more likely to fully realise the shipping industry’s transition path to net zero.”

Taking place in the morning session on day one, the panel will discuss the latest developments of green corridors and how ports can collaborate to create and implement support for zero-emissions solutions.

Moderated by Richard Ballantyne OBE, Chief Executive, British Ports Association, the panel will also welcome Eleni Bougioukou, Innovation Manager - Energy and Sustainability, Port of Tyne who will present the Port’s ‘blueprint for decarbonisation of UK ports project’.
