COP26: Launch of Clydebank Declaration

At COP26 in Glasgow, the Government has launched the Clydebank Declaration. 19 countries have declared their ambition and intent to support the establishment of green shipping corridors – zero-emission shipping routes between 2 ports.

Reacting to the news, Chamber Environment Policy Director Anna Ziou said:

“We are delighted to see 19 countries sign up to the Clydebank Declaration. The creation of zero emission shipping lanes is an important step on the journey towards a net zero future. It is vital that governments support operators and port infrastructure so the ambition of the declaration becomes a reality.”

‘’The Chamber is looking forward to working with the UK Government and other industry stakeholders to turn this ambition into action’’
