The Hapag-Lloyd Center for Shipping and Global Logistics (CSGL) of KLU, under the leadership of UBC Centre for Transportation Studies and Copenhagen Business School, together with 16 university partners and 19 non-academic industry and government partners lead an international maritime research network on governing environmental improvements in the maritime supply chain. The project is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and includes economists, business management scholars and political scientists.
While there is well-developed technical literature on ship design and the economics of efficient operation, sea transport is relatively under - investigated in the business management, political economy and global governance literatures. There is consequently a major gap when it comes to understanding the implications of the accelerating “green shipping” trend, which calls for greater environmental accountability and reduction of the air, land and water impacts of the sector along the maritime supply chain.
The Green Shipping research network aims to address this knowledge gap. The overall goal is to advance knowledge and understanding towards the progressive governance of sustainable maritime transport.
 
The yearly partnership meeting is organized by the KLU and will take place online. The meeting participation is upon invitation only.
