A port in Norway has signed a cooperation agreement with an environmental non-profit organisation to help it become emission-free.

The Port of Oslo, which first talked about its zero-emission ambition in June, will partner with the Oslo-headquartered Bellona Foundation to achieve its zero-emission goal. Emissions in the port are anticipated to be reduced by 85% by 2030 and gradually reduce until they are eliminated.

“The Port of Oslo is in full swing with the green transition, and has begun the phasing in of emissions-free solutions,” said Port of Oslo chairman, Roger Schjerva. “It is enthusiastic about working alongside the Bellona Foundation and exchanging ideas and solutions with Bellona’s network of environmental experts and organizations. Maritime transport and urban ports are crucial in reducing the world’s greenhouse gas emissions from the transport sector.”

Sharing solutions

Frederic Hauge, founder & CEO of Bellona, said: “The ports are crucial to the organization of green shipping and more efficient transport systems. A collaboration with the Port of Oslo opens up the possibility to look more closely at how to increase the electrification of the maritime sector and the transfer of goods from road to sea.

“The solutions we use in the Port of Oslo and the knowledge gained from them, must be shared nationally and internationally, so that they can be quickly scaled up.”

Bellona will distribute the lessons learned from this project, with the aim of allowing others to follow Oslo’s example.

Christina Ianssen, advisor – transportation at Bellona Foundation will speak about the challenges of a sustainable cruise industry at Green Port Cruise & Congress in October.
