Brief description

Sea transport is relatively under-investigated in the business management, political economy and global governance literatures. 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 and the accelerating “green shipping” trend.

Project purpose

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.
