Stakeholders’ Initiatives for the Future

Information on R&D projects for decarbonization, green shipping corridors, and relevant initiatives in ports, shipyards and the industry.


Ports have a key role to play in transforming the energy-maritime value chain, with the necessary future infrastructure to support the supply of low- and zero-carbon fuels at scale for shipping to transport and use. Several tools are available to facilitate this transformation.


Industry initiatives dedicated to advancing environmental and social performance across the energy transition. Find out about recent sustainability-related achievements, projects and news from the global oil and gas association, Ipieca, and its members.


Shipbuilding capacity is essential to respond to increased demand for alternative fuels and technologies and to deliver new vessels on time.
