The agreement signed between Governor Gavin Newsom and Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism also includes the commercialization of zero-emission fuels.
“We welcome the latest collaboration between California and Japan to clean up our ports and end ship pollution, and we urge their collaboration to focus on driving immediate emissions reductions, scaling absolutely zero well-to-wake emissions technologies, and to ultimately reach 100% zero. Emissions shipping by 2040,” commented Allyson Browne, climate campaign manager for ports at NGO Pacific Environment.
Other green corridor pacts have been signed between Los Angeles, Long Beach and Shanghai, with Singapore also signing a similar deal, while South Korea’s largest port, Busan, agreed last November to form a green corridor to the Port of Tacoma.
