Oslo aim for zero emissions. To succeed we need renewable fuels both for ships and heavy vehicles. The port is the market maker in between. Log on to Oslo Innovation Week and meet the companies and start-ups that want make this happen.

Ports connect cities across the world through trade and innovation. By working together, cities and ports can enable zero emission solutions at ports that reduce emissions from transport and supply chains far beyond the port area.

The digital workshops are part of Oslo Innovation Week and will be in English.  

Programme 28. September 

Role of Port and City in enabling decarbonization of supply chains:Building a replicable collaboration model.

Port cities are key global players. Ports connect cities across the world through trade and innovation. Ports and cities have the unique ability to act together on climate change, especially in their collective power to advance and accelerate the deployment of zero-emission technologies and solutions through joint procurement commitments and policies.

By working together, cities and ports can enable zero-emission solutions at ports, that reduce emissions from transport and supply chains far beyond the port area.

Oslo is living through the green transition in the construction industry. Is this a possible model for other port cities around the world?

Programme 29. September

Role of Port and City in enabling decarbonization of supply chains - Building green corridors between Port Cities

Port cities are key global players. Ports connect cities across the world through trade and innovation. Ports and cities have the unique ability to act together on climate change, especially in their collective power to advance and accelerate the deployment of zero-emissions technologies and solutions through joint procurement commitments and policies. By working together, cities and ports can enable zero-emission solutions at ports, that reduce emissions from transport and supply chains far beyond the port area.

This session will focus on the question of how the public sector can successfully engage and incentivize the private sector through clear procurement strategy, and creative financing mechanisms.

What necessary partnerships can be put to work to enable decarbonization across the entire value chain? How can these collective efforts facilitate the development of green shipping corridors between cities and their ports?
