The USA, Canada, and Mexico have committed to combatting the climate crisis by working together on the development of a clean hydrogen market in North America.
It will see the nations work collaboratively to develop a North American clean hydrogen market, including potential cooperation on research and development, safety codes and standards, cross-border hydrogen clusters, green freight corridors, and integrated maritime operations.
Allyson Browne, Climate Campaign Manager for Ports of Pacific Environment, has explained that it is essential to see the decarbonisation of the shipping sector: “We are encouraged by the trilateral agreement between the US, Canada, and Mexico and applaud the inclusion of maritime and green freight corridors.
“We call for an acceleration of shipping decarbonisation consistent with a 1.5-degree C pathway and elimination of in-port ship emissions by 2030.”
The announcement follows the COP27 Summit, where there were many green shipping announcements, including the launch of the Green Shipping Challenge, which encourages governments, ports, and the private sector companies to prepare commitments to boost the transition to green shipping.
