Annet Koster: "As a global sector, shipping needs to take its responsibility. It is our understanding that this fund is the largest and most inclusive industry-led proposal. In addition to international action, Dutch shipowners are taking the lead in sustainable growth. Seagoing vessels are becoming more energy efficient as every new vessel is built. Sources of renewable energy will be used by the shipping industry in the near future and renewable shore power is set to replace diesel generators."
