Getting to Zero Coalition

We are over 150 members that account for more than a quarter of the shipping industry’s market share by revenue, along with 14 supporting governments. Led by our coalition partners the Global Maritime Forum, the World Economic Forum and the Friends of Ocean Action, we are working together to mobilise the industry’s efforts to deploy commercialised zero-emissions vessels by 2030.

Our Approach

The Getting to Zero Coalition is accelerating maritime shipping’s decarbonisation by:

  • Working towards commercially viable zero-emissions vessels along deep-sea trade routes by 2030  
  • Advocating for the necessary infrastructure for scalable, zero-carbon energy sources  
  • Creating a shared sector transition strategy that maps the actions necessary to get to net zero by 2050 

Sector Transition Tools

First published in October 2021, a shipping Transition Strategy from the MPP-supported Getting to Zero Coalition, a partnership between the World Economic Forum and the Global Maritime Forum, and prepared by the University Maritime Advisory Services (UMAS), has relaunched as Making Zero-Emissions Shipping possible: An industry-backed Transition Strategy (The re-release of A Strategy for the Transition to Zero-Emission Shipping. The report shows the opportunity created by shipping’s need for scalable zero-emission fuels and details how a robust future demand from shipping can de-risk business cases for land-side production of green hydrogen that can serve multiple industries. The Strategy provides new insights into the essential elements of such a transition: the political, technical, economic, and commercial requirements, and the actions needed from the sector to deliver on them.
