Fintraffic´s Vessel Traffic Services joins the Green Shipping Challenge of the UN Climate Change Conference
The UN COP27 climate conference in Egypt is looking for solutions to speed up the implementation of the Paris climate agreement and keep the 1.5°C target still within reach. Solutions of Fintraffic´s Vessel Traffic Services are strongly present in the Green Shipping climate project demonstrating at the meeting the means to reduce climate emissions. Fintraffic’s digitalisation projects have already reduced sea transport emissions in Finland.
Maritime transport management solutions will feature strongly in the Green Shipping Climate Challenge, which will showcase ways to reduce climate emissions from shipping at the conference. Fintraffic’s maritime traffic management digitalisation projects have already helped to cut emissions from maritime transport in Finland.
More than 40 countries, ports and companies participated in the Green Shipping launch of the Climate Change Conference, bringing their own innovations and developments supporting greener meritime transport to the Green Shipping Challenge. From Finland, four different entities participated in the Green Shipping Challenge, two of which were Fintraffic’s flagship projects on sustainable development and digitalisation in maritime traffic management.
The projects presented at Fintraffic’s Maritime Traffic Management Green Shipping Challenge were the Port Call Time Stamp and Estimation Service & Port Activity application, implemented in collaboration with domestic companies Awake.ai and Unikie.
Virtual Port Arrival concept is promoted with Siili Solutions in the context of the NEMO project.
