The Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have set new targets for the green corridor with an aim to reduce emissions by 20-30 per cent by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050. Both the ports along with 20 corridor partners will ensure the use of zero and near-zero emissions fuels on the 15,000 km route between Singapore and Rotterdam.

Additionally, both ports have made progress by conducting ship-to-ship green methanol bunkering for Laura Maersk.

The corridor’s partners have also been working on studies to further alternative fuels which involves Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Zero-Carbon Shipping’s modelling study into fuels like synthetic and bio-versions of methanol, ammonia and LNG. Then, a working group formed by the Global Maritime Forum, the Centre for Maritime Studies of the National University of Singapore, the University of Oxford and Citi, has also been working on low-carbon fuels.
