The Japanese government and the Governor of California have together signed a letter of intent to launch a green shipping corridor over the Pacific. This agreement will also extend to commercialising zero-emission fuels.
Allyson Browne, climate campaign manager for ports at the NGO Pacific Environment has appreciated the intent between Japan and California to clean up ports and work on ship pollution. The partnership is aimed at driving immediate emissions reductions and upgrading emission technologies that will help achieve 100% zero-emission shipping by 2040.
Besides that, there are other green corridor pacts that have been signed between Shanghai and Los Angeles with Singapore on similar agreements whilst South Korea has partnered with the port of Tacoma to form a green corridor.
