Three Canadian ports take up net-zero challenge
After Canada’s federal minister of environment and climate change issued the net-zero challenge in August 2022, the ports of Montreal, Quebec City and Trois-Rivières began to join forces to accelerate the decarbonisation of maritime transport on the St. Lawrence River corridor.
The net-zero challenge is a voluntary initiative that invites organisations to develop and implement credible and effective transition plans to make their facilities and operations emission-free by 2050.
Daniel Dagenais, VP, port performance and sustainable development of the Montreal Port Authority (MPA), Pascal Raby, VP, operations of the Québec Port Authority, and Jacques Paquin, EVP of the Trois-Rivières Port Authority, announced that their cooperation will cover a range of areas, including communications, innovation, the environment, marine operations and asset management.
