Clean Shipping Project Platform (2018 – 2020)

CSHIPP brings together projects and organisations focused on enhancing clean shipping in the Baltic Sea region (BSR). The objective of CSHIPP is to increase the impact of and connect the dots between the several projects working for clean shipping. As the projects involved in the platform look at the shared topic of clean shipping from different angles, CSHIPP synthesises the projects’ results to provide a more holistic perspective in a concise and easily comprehensible format.

The Baltic Sea region is a frontrunner in clean shipping. The gap between research, business and policy making, however, hinders further and faster development in the field. With this in mind, CSHIPP targets its activities and strives to increase dialogue between three groups of actors in the field of clean shipping: research organisations, businesses/industry representatives and policy makers.  CSHIPP is also a strong voice for the valuable work done in projects funded by the EU.

The activities of CSHIPP revolve around two key themes: the environmental effects of shipping and the business potential of clean shipping in the BSR. By discussing these themes both separately and simultaneously, CSHIPP emphasises that environmentally friendly shipping and profitable business support rather than exclude one another.

HELCOM is leading the work related to drafting policy recommendations from the outputs of the different projects involved in the platform as well as developing an online dessimination tool to share information related to shipping in the BSR.
